  • ½ cup applesauce unsweetened
  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ tsp cinnamon optional


How to make homemade applesauce

  • Peel and cut apples into big chunks and place then in a saucepan filled half way with water until boiling. Cook for about 10 minutes on medium heat.
  • Cool and blend in a food processor or blender.

How to make healthy Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies for kids

  • Heat the oven to 180°C/350°F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Mash the banana
  • Add applesauce, oats and cinnamon to the banana and mix with a wooden spoon until fully incorporated
  • Take a tablespoon and spoon out the dough, roll it into a ball and place on your baking tray. Repeat as many times as you have the dough for (most likely 6 cookies)
  • Gently flatten each ball. These cookies won't expand in size when baked, so the shape you put them in the oven is the shape they will come out
  • Bake for about 12 minutes. The cookie is done when you are able to easily lift it off the tray with a spatula.


  1. If using store-bought applesauce use unsweetened where the only ingredient is apples.
  2. To make it gluten-free, use gluten-free oats
  3. You can substitute either the banana or the applesauce with an egg, but you may have to add more sweeteness
