granola cookies

Cover cookie

I’ve been on a health kick lately. You know, new year, new food, newfound health. You get the idea. Plus, I have a growing wee-one relying on me for nutrition. It’s only fair to try to make good, healthy food for myself and my body. This is my mindset today… being a new year and all. Tomorrow, I may convince myself Jack needs to taste a little pizza. I’ll take the health kicks when they come.

I found this recipe on Facebook or Pinterest? I’m sorry, I forgot where. But it seemed easy, and I had the ingredients, so I had to try it! It’s a great morning go-to or a guilt-free sweet snack anytime of day. I hope you’re a fan, too.

RecipeIngredients

  • 3 mashed ripe bananas
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1/4 soy milk – the recipe called for almond milk, but we had soy milk the day I was making them! Use what ya got!
  • 1/2 cup raisins – I used 1/4 cup because the hubs doesn’t like raisins.
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Ingredients

Preheat oven to 350º. I then combined bananas, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Then added the oats. Super simple.

Oats Mixture

At this time, I halved the oat mixture and added the 1/4 cup of raisins to half. Spoon mixture onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 15 – 20 minutes!!

Enjoy! They are pretty tasty for what they are. I might switch out the raisins for mini chocolate chips next time for a true sweet treat!

  1. This sounds yummy. Hope to try. Why couldn’t a person use dried cranberries instead of the raisins. I’m like Paul not to fond of them. Also the chips sound good. I’d probably put in some pecans. I’m a nut fanatic. I love the pictures of Jackson on the sofa. Looks like he is ready for take off. The weather here today stinks. Snowing again. Hope all are well.

    • Pecans and/or cranberries sound great! I really want to try dried cherries or almonds! Keep me posted if you try anything!!! Stay warm up there!

  2. does it matter what kind of oats? I always have the quick oats around, but usually not steel cut. These sound good!

    • I don’t think it makes a difference!?! Quick oats would probably be better because they’re thinner! ;) Keep me posted if you try it! ;)
