Healthy Cookie Recipe

Cookies...that are healthy?  What more could you ask for?

Some of the best foods to eat after a workout are peanut butter, oatmeal, applesauce, and bananas.  These cookies contain all 4!  This makes them a great post workout snack.  They also make great breakfast cookies, pre-workout snack, dessert, or late night snack.

This is my recipe for no sugar, no flour, no oil cookies!

Healthy Cookies:

2 ripe mashed bananas
1/3 C. Peanut Butter
2/3 C. Applesauce (Unsweetened)
1 tsp. Vanilla
Dash of Salt
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Cloves
1/2 tsp. Nutmeg
1/3 C. Mix-ins (Chocolate chips, coconut, nuts, raisins, or blueberries)

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Blueberry healthy cookies

Blueberries would obviously be the healthiest choice, but really you can add just about anything you think sounds good.  Or you can add multiple mix-ins.  Sometimes, I like to add a couple squirts of sugar free maple syrup as well.

A little extra PB never hurt!

I like to play around with the recipe. I usually add some extra peanut butter (as you can see in the picture).  Sometimes I add extra mix-ins.  Also, a fun fall addition is to add a little bit of pumpkin pie spice.

Maple raisin healthy cookies

Choc. chip healthy cookies

Personally, I love the batter just as much as the cookies! The recipe doesn't contain any eggs, so eat up! Yum!


  1. These sound delicious! Going to make them tonight. How many does the recipe usually make?

    1. Sorry I just saw this comment! It usually makes about 10-20 depending on how big you make them! Enjoy!
