No eggs, dairy, or oil, easy to make, and oh so delicious!

WARNING: These will not cause weight gain, and when eaten along with a whole foods plant-based diet, will help you lose weight, stop or reverse heart disease and Type 2 Diabetes, and lengthen your life. Also beware of their delicious taste.

COOKIES:

  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 tsp Egg Replacer
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.

In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients well.

In another container, mix the Egg Replacer with the water and whisk until frothy. (If you don’t have access to Egg Replacer, you can use flax meal instead.)

Mash the bananas in another bowl.

Stir in the brown sugar, apple sauce, and vanilla.

Mix well, then stir in the Egg Replacer (or flax meal) mixture.

Pour over the dry ingredients and mix until well-combined and moist.

Drop by spoon fulls (a 1 or 2 tbsp spoon works well, such as a coffee scoop) onto a dry non-stick backing sheet, and flatten slightly with a fork.

Bake for 12-15 minutes, until slightly browned.

Remove from oven and cool.

ICING:

  • 1 cup organic confectioner’s (powdered) sugar
  • 4 tsp water
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla

Mix together until smooth, then start spreading it on the cookies right away (before it starts to harden). We also added some organic vegan sprinkles on top, immediately after the icing was in place.

If desired, you can replace the powdered sugar with date paste and omit the water.

Allow to harden for 2 – 3 hours, then enjoy!
