Peanut Butter Banana Breakfast “Cookies”

These are healthy but fun “cookies” that you’ll feel good about giving your kids (or yourself) as part of breakfast or as a snack.  Kinda reminiscent of banana bread – a soft chewy cookie.

  • 1 cup spelt flour (or whole wheat pastry)
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats (I used quick)
  • 1 super ripe banana, smushed
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter (or nut/seed butter of your choice)
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 4 oz (scant 1/4 cup) unsweetened applesauce*
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened original almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir until well incorporated.  Grease a baking sheet.  Spoon dough onto a baking sheet.  You can crowd them – they won’t spread out hardly at all.  Bake for about 13 minutes or until browning a bit on the bottom.

*CHEF’S NOTE* I keep the individual 4 oz applesauce packs in my pantry for baking
