So I make these on a regular basis for my sweetie to take to work. For years he took granola bars, but those are really just glorified candy bars full of corn syrup. Now if we run out he harangues me for the next batch. I start with a basic recipe and tweak it to add different goodies :-) This is super nutritious and filling- they get him through the day and now his co-workers always try to gank some off of him- I'm starting to get requests from his starving co-workers who work too hard to get a break.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

A great on-the-go breakfast or quick snack. Bananas and applesauce make these real moist. The oats let these get a little crispy on the outside. We added cranberries and loved the flavor combination. These are really yummy! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 3
    ripe bananas
  • 2 c
    rolled oats
  • 1/3 c
    fruit sauce (applesauce, etc)
  • 1 tsp
    pure vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp
    chia seeds
  • 1/2 c
    dried fruit

How to Make Clint's Hippie Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix everything together, smashing up the bananas first.
  3. Use a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. These are STICKY! Put them on the cookie sheet by spoonfuls and flatten them just a little bit.
  4. Cook for about 25 minutes or until the edges crisp a bit. They won't become overall crispy instead they will have a chewy, soft texture.
