Loading up on a hefty dose of the white stuff isn't exactly the best way to start your morning. Baked goods like scones and quick breads tend to be high in sugar and fat, so if you're craving a homemade treat from the oven, bake up a batch of these oatmeal breakfast bites — they taste like cookies! They're sweetened with banana and a touch of maple syrup, but each chewy bite has only 2.6 grams of sugar and 0.3 grams of saturated fat.
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1/3 cup almond butter (I used crunchy)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened soy milk
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup quick oats
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until smooth. Mix in the almond butter, applesauce, soy milk, maple syrup, and vanilla.
- In a medium bowl, mix the flour, oats, and cinnamon. Pour the dry ingredients into the large bowl, and mix together.
- Drop spoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet, and bake for 12 minutes or until slightly brown.
