Banana oatmeal cranberry cookies

A few months ago I made banana oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.  Since they had  no flour and no eggs they were a hit at my monthly cooking club when we had an “eggless theme”.  Since then I have seen quite a few renditions of the cookies on Pinterest. My sister-in-law brought a few of her own cookies to a baseball game this weekend and it inspired me to make these. No added sugar (yes the chocolate chips & dried cranberries have added sugar), no flour and no egg!


  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup oatmeal (uncooked – quick or old fashioned)
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup cup walnuts
  • 1/3 cup chocolate hips
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  6. Let sit 10 minutes so that oatmeal absorbs some of the moisture.
  7. Spoon cookies onto cookies sheet with parchment paper and slightly flatten.
  8. Bake 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown.
  9. Let cookies cool 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.
