Hit with a cookie craving? This no-sugar-added version is a delicious choice if you’re trying to tame your sweet tooth. The flavor comes from naturally sweet bananas and pecans as well as the cinnamon and vanilla.
- Prep time
- Total Time
- ¾ cup chopped pecans, plus extra for topping
- ¾ cup rolled oats (instant or quick cooking)
- 3 ripe bananas
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- Pinch salt
Preheat oven to 350˚ and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or coat with non-stick oil spray.
Blend pecans in a food processor until they are the same consistency as crumbs. Pour blended pecans into a large bowl, add oats and combine until well-mixed. Set aside.
Blend bananas, cinnamon, vanilla extract and salt in food processor until bananas become smooth and liquid. Add to oat mixture and combine to form a batter.
Scoop a heaping teaspoon of batter, one at a time, onto the baking sheet. Gently push down the center of each cookie and top with a few pecan pieces. (To prevent your fingers from sticking, dab them in water or mist with cooking spray.)
Cook for 10 minutes and remove from oven. Let cool and enjoy.
