Oat Drop Cookies


No sugar, No eggs, No butter. 

When I saw the recipe for these on Shape magazine I was all for it! 
They have 10 delicious healthy and easy-to-make cookies for the healthy-minded foodies--ME!
You can find them all HERE.

I decided to make these for last minute Downtown Abby watching party and they were a perfect pair for the tea! 

I took the original recipe and made two different types of cookies in one batch: Sweet Cranberry Oat Drops, and Cinnamon Raisin Oat drops. All I did was make the base*, cut it in half, and add the "extra" ingredients I wanted to make them unique.

These are healthy enough to eat for breakfast---no joke.

Easy bake, no mistake. 

2 cups rolled oats
1/3 cup applesauce
3 very ripe bananas
1/2 tsp salt
1tbs ground flaxseed
1 tsp vanilla extract

Sweet Cranberry
2-3 tbs dried cranberries

Cinnamon Raisin
2-3 tbs raisins
1 tsp cinnamon

Smash bananas in a small bowl. Add vanilla and apple sauce and mix well. Add in oats,salt, and flaxseed and mix until well incorporated.
Divide dough in half--I just pushed half of the dough to the side of the bowl.
Fold in dried cranberries to one half of  dough.
Fold in 1 tsp cinnamon and raisin in the other half of the dough.

On a parchment lined baking sheet, press out drops of dough into cookie shapes.

Bake for 20 min-until edges are golden brown.
