Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast Cookies

1/2 cup rolled oats
scant 1/2 cup applesauce or over-ripe banana (mashed)
1/4 cup nut butter of choice
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 tbsp raisins (or other dried fruit, or even chocolate chips)- can add 1 mashed Medjool date for sweetness
1/16 tsp salt, plus a tiny pinch more if desired (taste dough to decide)
a bit of date syrup, coconut nectar, raw honey or maple syrup if needed

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mash the applesauce or banana with the nut butter, then add all other ingredients and mix until well-combined. Shape into cookies and bake for around 14 minutes. (Alternatively, you can try pulverizing the raisins and oats before combining them with the banana mixture, if you want more sweetness.)

This recipe probably yields around 10-12 cookies, if you don’t eat a lot of the raw dough!
