Guilt-Free Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Recently, my daughter shipped to me coconut flour, PB2 powdered peanut butter, and a package of Bob’s Red Mill coconut flakes.  I love coconut in any form.

Searching online to use these ingredients for recipes with low-calories, low-carbs and low-fat, I found a Banana Oatmeal Cookie that looked promising.   

I changed the original recipe by using less oatmeal and raisins, adding coconut flakes, almond extract and a little more cinnamon, and used coconut milk instead of almond milk. All of these ingredients I already had on hand.

Guilt-Free Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Yield:  30 cookies (2 cookie per serving).

3 mashed ripe bananas
⅓ cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 ¾  cups old-fashioned oatmeal
¼ cup coconut flakes
¼  cup coconut milk
¼  cup raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla
1  teaspoon almond extract
½  teaspoon baking powder
¼  teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • Preheat oven to 350°  F.
  • Into a mixing bowl, mash the (peeled) bananas. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix all together.
  • Drop mixture by tablespoon onto a greased cookie sheet or line it with parchment paper.  Flatten with the back of a spoon.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until brown
  • Let cool at least 15 minutes before eating

By my calculations, each cookie has 36 calories, 7.5 g. carbohydrates, <0.5 g fat, <0.5 sat fat, 3.9 g. sugar.

For breakfast, I ate three of these cookies along with a glass of Silk Coconutmilk.
