Vegan Oatmeal Cookies

Are you looking for a quick and easy breakfast idea that will fit into a raw and vegan lifestyle? Then you’ve got to try these Vegan Oatmeal Cookies that I made yesterday! I was running low on groceries this week and I don’t have time to make it to the store, so I raided my pantry for a quick and easy breakfast for my kids before summer camp. I found one lone bag of dates, a couple of overripe bananas, a bit of applesauce left in a jar in the back of the fridge and oatmeal. I blended it all together in my food processor and the result is delicious! These are completely vegan and will fit into a raw food diet. I did not add any sugar, yet they taste sweet. Dates are naturally sweet and are known as nature’s candy. My kids love them and I threw a few in their lunch for camp today. Chock-full of fiber, this sweet treat is actually good for them!

Try out the recipe and let me know what you think:

Vegan Oatmeal Cookies

  • 2 cups oats
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 overripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1/2 cup sugar-free applesauce

Process the oats in a food processor until it turns into a fine powder. Add the remainder of the ingredients and process until combined. Drop heaping teaspoons of the mixture on a baking sheet at bake at 350 for 11 minutes.

    They remind me of a cookie I use to get at the Home Economist years ago. I bet it would be good with sunflower or pumpkin seeds added!
