I’m always looking for ways to use my ripe bananas in recipes. This cookie is wonderful, it’s moist and full of delicious nuts and raisins. I like to use them as a snack before and after my walks. They’re sweet and tasty without being overly sweet or rich. The applesauce helps to add a sweet and moist quality to the cookie.

  1. Thank you lisa; this looks awesome; however, I am allergic to oats. Is there an alternative to oats you might suggest (gluten free)? Maybe ground flax or any ideas would be welcome. Been looking for a healthy nut “BAR: for my family!! Thanks in advance !!! :-)

      I would try a combination of ground flax and almond meal.
