Remember the chocolate oatmeal cookies you used to eat as a kid? Recently, I wanted some of those and decided to play around in the kitchen a bit. These Chocolate Oat Cookies are what I came up with as a much healthier version.
Those older cookies were laden with butter, white sugar, and milk. But, these are dairy-free and oil-free, and instead made with apple sauce, cocoa, and peanut butter. They are loaded with chocolatey flavor and will bring back childhood memories!
These are some more plant-based desserts you might like:
- 2 whole bananas, very ripe
- 1/4 cup apple sauce
- 2 cups old fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup natural peanut butter (or PB2)
- 3 Tbsp brown sugar more if you like very sweet
- 1 Tbsp agave or maple syrup
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mash 2 ripe bananas in a large bowl with potato masher or fork.
Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well.
Drop spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet then gently press with fork to flatten a bit.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, remove from oven, and allow to cool.
Serve and enjoy!
