Sugar Free Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies with Banana & Chocolate Chips.

A delicious way to turn a healthy breakfast into a cookie, and know on rushed mornings that you have a fantastic alternative ready to grab and go. Or make as you want them.

After a few experiments I decided on pre-roasting the oatmeal for an extra musty flavour. This is optional if you’re in a rush – but it actually made a delicious difference so I highly recommend it.

And my kids are picky about ’lumpy’ cookies, so I tried something new here, which worked like a charm.

Instead of using whole oatmeal (which again, you could do if you’re in a rush, or don’t have picky kids) I tossed the oatmeal into a food processor and made an oatmeal flour… Yes, a moment of brilliance. This is perfect too if you want to make these cookies for a baby – perfect from about 7 months, as there isn’t even any added salt in them.

Sugar Free Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies with Banana & Chocolate Chips

(Makes 22 – 24 cookies)

160g uncooked oatmeal (porridge oats) (4 3/4 dl / 2 cups) – use gluten free if you prefer

3 ripe bananas, mashed

120g unsweetened applesauce (1 1/4 dl / 1/2 cup)

50 ml milk (1/2 dl / 1/4 cup)

1 tsp vanilla extract

100g dark chocolate (1/2 cup)




Applesauce is one of the first things I make in the autumn from the abundance of delicious homegrown apples available, and I like that if I make it myself, I can decide about the sugar content. I usually don’t add any sugar at all. Keep one sealed container in the fridge and freeze the rest to take out as I need them.

These delicious sugar free oatmeal applesauce cookies are fantastic fresh. You can keep them for a day or two in the fridge, or freeze them and take them out as you need them. They’re crispiest the first day, and softer if kept. Either way a fantastic, healthy breakfast to grab and go, or pack for a snack or lunch box.
