This recipe comes out looking and tasting like freshly baked mini Cliff Bars! Just enough sweet and a whole lot of healthy! No dairy, no eggs, very little fat and very high in fiber!

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 25 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: Makes about 18 cookies.

Ingredients

  • 3 bananas, ripened (the ones with brown spots will add more sweetness)
  • 1 1/2 cups oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, stone ground (I use High Altitude Hungarian whole wheat flour living in Colorado)
  • 1 1/2 carrots, thinly grated
  • 3 tbps almond butter, (or you can opt to use smooth or crunchy peanut butter)
  • 3 tbsp oat or wheat bran, for added fiber
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp dark brown sugar, optional (or simply sugar free)
  • Olive Oil cooking spray
  1. Preheat oven to 450. In a medium sized mixing bowl, smash and puree bananas with a large fork until they are almost creamy. Doesn't have to be completely lump free.
  2. Add & mix together almond butter, cinnamon, oat or wheat bran, and carrots. Then add & mix in whole wheat flour, then oatmeal until completely blended.
  3. Spray 2 cookie sheets with olive oil spray. Add dollops of cookie batter about the size of 2 rounded tablespoons. With a small fork, shape cookies round and flat. Your cook time will vary if using only 1 cookie sheet.
  4. Bake each batch for about 18-20 minutes, until golden brown with edges slightly crisped.

      Thank you, their our favorite, although the way I make them each time can vary... either adding carrots, zucchini, cranberries, carob chips, but with a base of just bananas and oatmeal they will always be healthy!

      These cookies look like they're packed with nutrition and very healthful. Lots of vitamins and fiber and so good for a person! I like the idea of putting veggies in them along with the rolled oats.
