Healthy Banana Cookies

Muesli cookies?!?
I like having snacks. I like muesli. I had a fun time making these cookies. I kind of think these were more like muesli cookies what I made.

Makes 2 baking trays /about 50 pieces

Ingredients

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 160 g rolled oats
  • 145 g assorted nuts, dried fruits, seeds
  • 80 ml apple sauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • agave syrup  
  • chocolate slices

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, mash the bananas. Stir in all ingredients. Mix well, and allow to sit for 15 minutes. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly brown.(Mine took about 12 minutes)
As a matter of fact, I am sure they can be formed as bars. Next time I might just try that one out. What I am not sure of, if these are supposedly soft and moist. How long do they keep, I have no idea as well. Knowing the people who live here, it won't last long.

The exact measurement of the assorted stuffs I simply don't know anymore. I played with them --- nuts (hazelnuts, walnuts), seeds (flax seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds), dried fruits (cranberries, raisins), fresh fruits (apple, banana), agave syrup, cinnamon, chocolate slices. I could have used my breakfast muesli but figured, better make my own mix.
