A Naturally Sweet Treat

cookiesWhen you have a sweet tooth and want to stay on track, here’s a nice treat. They’re good and easy, plus they use ingredients that you probably already have around the house. All that and no sugar!


  • 3 smashed bananas (ripe work best)
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup milk (I use light vanilla soy)
  • 1/2 cup raisins*
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

* If you don’t like raisins, you can experiment with other add-ins; I made a batch with dried cranberries that were delightful.

Mix well. Drop tablespoonfuls onto prepared (non-stick spray or parchment paper) cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
