Upgrade your Oats !

Tired of your old boring oatmeal breakfast? Ready to shake things up a bit ? Having a different breakfast even when using the SAME ingredients can put a whole new spin on your meal to start the day ! Try out this breakfast treat or make it for a post workout snack to curb that afternoon craving !
Banana Applesauce Oatmeal snack !
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup almond milk
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°.
Lightly grease a cookie sheet or use a silicone baking mat (we use a mat).
Mix the mashed bananas and applesauce until combined; add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
Let the mixture sit to allow the oats to absorb liquid (I often skip this part as I’m in a rush to eat cookies).
Using two spoons, scoop out mixture and smoosh it down on the cookie sheet- they will not flatten in the oven.
Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown; cool completely. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Hint: It takes a while to get used to the texture. Some of my friends find these are too rubbery !!
