Healthy Cookies

Indulging in a sweet treat doesn’t always mean compromising on health. These delightful Healthy Cookies strike the perfect balance between indulgence and nutrition. Made with wholesome ingredients, these cookies are a testament to the fact that delicious can also mean nutritious. Featuring ripe bananas, unsweetened apple sauce, and hearty oats, these cookies get their subtle sweetness naturally.

The addition of almond milk keeps them moist, while a mix of raisins, nuts, and dark chocolate chunks (with Lily’s brand being a personal favorite for its quality and taste) adds texture and richness. A hint of vanilla and a sprinkle of cinnamon elevate the flavors, making each bite a delightful experience. The best part? There’s no added sugar or flour, making these cookies a guilt-free pleasure. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and follow these simple steps to bake a batch of these healthy treats.

Healthy Cookies Recipe


  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup raisins or nuts (based on preference)
  • 1 cup good quality dark chocolate chunks (Lily’s brand recommended)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the mashed bananas and apple sauce. Mix well until smooth.
  3. Add the oats to the banana mixture and stir to incorporate.
  4. Pour in the almond milk and mix until all the ingredients are well combined.
  5. Gently fold in the raisins or nuts, dark chocolate chunks, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Ensure everything is evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  6. Using a spoon, drop dollops of the cookie batter onto the prepared baking sheet. You can shape them slightly with the back of the spoon if desired.
  7. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake the cookies for 15-20 minutes, or until they are firm to the touch and lightly golden.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy these nourishing cookies as a snack, a healthy dessert option, or even as a quick breakfast on-the-go. Their natural sweetness and wholesome ingredients make them a fantastic choice for satisfying your sweet tooth without the guilt.
