Breakfast Cookies. - Vegan.

Breakfast Cookies - Vegan

I bumped into a friend yesterday who also loves healthy food and I told her, "I saw the documentary Forks Over Knives, and I'm now eating an all plant diet."  To which she replied, "Me too! And I thought of you because I found this FABULOUS recipe for a breakfast cookie that is TO DIE FOR."  I got the recipe from her this morning and made them immediately.  I added a couple of things like walnuts and golden raisins, which just proves that you can customize this to your taste.   The grated orange rind just sends these over the top.  These cookies are indeed to die for, but are very healthy.  Therefore we won't die young, we will live long and prosper.  Enjoy!

Vegan Breakfast Cookies

2 mashed bananas
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce (one of those individual sized serving cups)
1/4 teaspoon each of cinnamon and nutmeg
grated fresh orange rind (to taste)
2 cups rolled oats
1/3 cup mix of golden and regular raisins
1/3 cup walnuts
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine ingredients and press into cookie sized rounds on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake for 9 minutes.  Remove cookies to cooling rack.


  1. Making these this week, too. Can't wait!

  2. Sounds amazing!! How many cookies will this yummy recipe make?

  3. No specific number because you can make them as large or as small as you wish!

    1. thanks!!! I am making them now to share with my friends at church!! God Bless you for sharing healthy foods!

  4. Just made these. So easy, tasty, and healthy! Mine are pretty rubbery, which I half expected. If I cook them longer will they firm up some, or is rubbery the nature of the mashed banana cookie? Thanks!

  6. The recipe yeilded 12 cookies for me I added a TBSP of brown sugar to add a little sweetness. I didn't find mine rubbery at all. I entered the recipe into my fitness pal so I could log it. Acorrding to the app If you consider two cookies a serving (this is with the added brown sugar)you get the nutritional stats below and yes these kept me full till lunch. Thanks so much for the great recipe.
