Healthy Recipe for Low Calorie Vegan Cookies!

Mmmm healthy VEGAN cookies

It has been way too long since my last post and i'm so glad to be back on here with a great new recipe!  It's pretty simple and VERY healthy.  And attention vegans: it's dairy and egg FREE! Plus it lets you satisfy your sweet tooth without all the added sugars in regular store bought cookies!

Here are the ingredients you'll need:

  • 2 bananas
  • 1 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1 cup UNSWEETENED applesauce
  • 1/4 almonds or walnuts
  • 3 tbsp raisins
  • 2 tbsp any other dried fruit
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground flaxseed

Directions:
what the cookie mixture looks like before baking
  1. preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. mix vanilla extract and cinnamon into the unsweetened applesauce
  3. blend applesauce mixture with all other ingredients and let stand for at least 10 minutes
  4. scoop onto a cookie sheet and flatten cookies into rounds (this can make 12-16 cookies depending on the size of each cookie)
  5. bake for approximately 30 minutes or until golden
  6. remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes to cool
VOILA!!
