These are some of my favorite cookies right now. I'm doing a new thing with my kids where if they give me the treats that they get at school/church/parties etc., I exchange it for healthier cookies that I've made. I've always got to have a few selections in the freezer in order to keep it up. So far it's been fun but I CAN'T BELIEVE how many treats they bring me (which means they would have been eating all that before- which is the reason I did this in the first place!). I know that even vegan cookies aren't super healthy, but at least they are better than the alternative!

1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. oats
1 c. sucanat or brown sugar
2 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
2 t. vanilla
1/4 c. baby food prunes
2 T. applesauce
1/2 c. maple syrup
1/2 c. peanut butter

  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • Mix all ingredients together (I use a Bosch)
  • Drop rounded balls onto greased cookie sheet.
  • Smash down with a fork
  • Sprinkle with sugar or ECJ if desired
  • Bake 10-12 minutes
