Toddler Cookies

Today is all about the little ones. They need tasty snacks too, right?! I’ve told you guys how my toddler is really picky. I never know if she is going to eat what I make her and about 90% of the time, she just wants to be on the run and sitting down for a meal or snack is just not a priority for her. Enter these little toddler cookies!

Toddler Cookies

These cookies are packed with lots of good stuff like oats, almond butter, applesauce, honey, and even chia seeds! I call these toddler cookies, but I have to admit that even I enjoy grabbing one for a quick and healthy snack! I do want to note these cookies have more of a muffin-like texture than your normal cookie recipe. You can also add in dried fruits or nuts if you want, whatever your little ones would like!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 medium to large ripe banana, mashed
  • 3 tablespoons honey (or maple syrup; can adjust if desired)
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or with a silicone mat.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the applesauce, mashed banana, honey, almond butter, and the vanilla until well-combined.
  3. In another bowl, add in the oats, baking powder, flour, cinnamon, the salt, and the chia seeds until everything is well-combined. Gently stir in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined.
  4. Use a large cookie scoop or drop about 2 tbs. of the batter onto the cookie sheet for each cookie. Gently press down on the top of each one to flatten just slightly. Bake for about 10-13 minutes or until the cookies are slightly golden.
