Lunch has passed and it’s not quite dinnertime and the kiddos are hungry. It’s afternoon snack time! This is a great gluten-free and egg free recipe.
2 Ripe Bananas, Mashed
1/3 C. Peanutbutter
2/3 C Unsweetened Applesauce
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
Dash of Ground Cloves
Dash of Ground Nutmeg
1 1/2 C Quick or Old Fashioned Oats (optional: gluten free oats)
1/4 C Nuts
1/4-1/2 C Chocolate Chips
1/4 Shredded Coconut (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Mix together the bananas, peanut butter, applesauce, vanilla, and spices. Add in the oats, nuts, chocolate chips and coconut; stir until well combined.
Spoon a rounded 2 tbsp. of the cookie mixture onto the lined baking sheet, leaving an inch or two between each and flatten slightly. I place a few more chocolate chips on top each cookie.
Bake 20-30 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before removing from pan.
