I don’t really know the name of these cookies, but my friend Mantamy sent me the recipe, and since they have no butter, oil, flour, or sugar, it was either “All Natural” or “Nothing Good In These Cookies”. I thought All Natural might rank higher on google.
Take 3 ripe bananas and mash.
Add in 3 cups of rolled oats.
Add 1.5 cups of chopped dates.
Next, add 1 cup of unsweetened apple sauce. Also 2 tsp. of vanilla.
Mix well and let sit for 15 minutes. Then drop by spoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheet. Cook at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
I’ve made this recipe twice. The first time I only used 1/3 cup of applesauce and 1 cup of dates and they were so thick and dry no one would eat them. Well, no one who hadn’t been living on juice for the past month. I tried to serve it to Tania-the-mad and the rest of the gang but they spit them out pretty quickly.
Not to be discouraged, I remade them with the recipe above and they were better. I took them to church and gave them to friends and they didn’t spit them out! Okay, they WANTED to spit them out but the whole church thing prevented it.
Moron Test Grade – D.
Mantamy said hers were good, so either she did things a little differently, or she’s been on a diet so long her taste buds have adjusted to like chewy cardboard.
History has shown that most people do a LOT of things differently than I do.

Hmpf. I just made another batch, using pumpkin instead of applesauce and added cinnamon, ginger, cloves and a pinch of salt. I think they’re really good! Will bring you some on Sunday (IF there are any left).
Here’s the link to the original recipe, just so your readers don’t think I’m a total “D-” :http://allrecipes.com/recipe/healthy-banana-cookies/
I’m sure yours are GREAT. I can’t get my dates small enough. It’s like chewing on gummy bear cookies.
I think they are delish! alex just made a batch. I can’t stop nibbling on them!
Alex is the bomb! She can make anything taste good.
this blog post made me laugh out loud. a D-, ha ha. Finally some honest about all these all-natural, nothing good-in-them recipes!! Although, I’m quite sure Amy’s were awesome. Ha ha. To her at least. 🙂
