  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1⁄3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1⁄8 cup ground flaxseed
  • 2 cups gluten-free quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1⁄4 cup whole milk
  • 1 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1⁄2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1⁄2 cup raisins


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a cookie sheet.
  • Combine the mashed bananas and applesauce in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly. Let it stand for at least 5 minutes, until the oatmeal begins to soak up the mixture and expands a bit.
  • Spoon heaping tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared cookie sheet; sprinkle with additional cinnamon if desired. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until browned slightly on top. Allow the cookies to set for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
