I wanted a breakfast cookie Sunday morning, with oats and raisins and maybe even sweetened with a banana…
I knew I didn’t want any agave nectar or sugar. Or butter. Or oil. And applesauce would be fine.
I found a recipe that fit my criteria at the blog ‘Chocolate Covered Katie.’
I used one banana instead of the applesauce. And I was really lucky that I had my own homemade almond butter on hand (which is easy peasy in the food processor).
When I got to mixing all the ingredients I added a lot more oats, and even put in some baking soda and powder … I was in the mood for something more cookie-like than dough-like. (So the final mix included 1 1/2 cups oats).
The recipe also says that these aren’t sweet so you can add Stevia. I didn’t add any Stevia or sugar or any other sweetener. I figured the banana and raisins would provide just enough sweetness.
As always, my super duper taste tester husband is the ultimate judge. I had put three cookies on his morning plate. Let’s just say when I returned I found the plate empty with hardly any crumbs apparent.
(Plus tonight I told him I had saved two cookies. He had one more and then I packed one in my bag for tomorrow after yoga practice).
