You are eating a healthy cookie, great for adults and the kids will love them and wont miss all the fats and flour. If desired you can add nuts but if their is a nut allergy just add more yummy chocolate chunks. So simple to make, one bowl recipe, no mixer needed.
1/3 cup apple sauce
3 mashed banana's, ripe brown
2 cups oats
1/4 cup almond milk
1 cup chocolate chunks
1/4 cup nuts of choice, pecan, walnut or you can just omit nuts and add another 1/4 cup chocolate chunks
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2-1 teaspoon cinnamon
1. In a large bowl place the banana's and mash with a fork until all are mashed, if you have lumps that is fine.
2. To the banana's in the same bowl, add in the applesauce, oats, almond milk, vanilla, and cinnamon and stir until combined. Fold in the chocolate chunks, and nuts ( if using) and mix until combined.
4. Bake for 13-20 minutes or until cookies are set in the middle
