SarahFit Banana Date Oatmeal Cookie-Muffins

April 7, 2011

I always buy too many bananas and am looking for things to put them in by the end of the week.  Last night’s concoction was amazing and simple!  I used my banana to make healthy little muffins to satisfy my lingering sweet tooth, but I think these would be better if baked on a cookie sheet.

Sarah Fit Banana Date Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 Ripe Banana
  • 3 Dates
  • 1 cup Oats
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar (unpacked)
  • 1 Egg White (make it vegan with 1 TBSP ground flaxseed and 3 TBSP water)
  • 1/2 TSP Baking Soda

Preheat oven to 350F.  Mash banana well in a medium mixing bowl. Chop up dates well or put in a blender.  Add to banana mash and mix well.

Next, add the dry ingredients and mix well.  Feel free to add some walnuts, raisins or chia seeds.  I chose to be a minimalist for this one.  

Spoon mixture onto a greased cookie sheet or into mini muffin pans like I did.  This recipe made 10 mini muffins but I think it would make more cookies.  Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until desired.  I like mine barely done.

They were delicious and moist! Not too sweet.  I am most definitely going to make these again.  Thanks to the banana and dates, no butter was necessary!  These would be great to have before a morning workout or a sweet tooth lingering after dinner!
