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
- 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!
