These quick, easy cookies use no added butter or oil and taste absolutely delicious.

You can get creative and add raisins, coconut flakes or simply eat them plain. Feeling a little frisky? Add bourbon in place of vanilla. If the kids are craving dark chocolate, throw in 1/4 cup of chocolate chips. Make it fun for them by allowing them to get creative and choose their own additions.

Our personal favorite addition is raisins, walnuts and pepitas. The sky is the limit!

These simple, FfL-friendly cookies are a staple in our house and fun to get creative with.

A great pre/post-workout snack

Because oats and bananas are easy-to-digest carbs that power you up without weighing you down, these cookies double as a delicious pre/post-workout snack. Enjoy one 30-60 minutes before your workout or within 30 to 60 minutes after you finish your sweat sesh.

Encourage your kids to embrace real food

When you make your cookies, help your kids understand the difference between minimally processed cookies and highly processed ones. Otherwise, they may think they’re one in the same.

If you really want to get them involved, you can even make it a fun activity next time you go to the grocery store. Do most cookie labels use simple real food ingredients (whole grains, honey, maple syrup, cinnamon, butter, coconut oil or EVOO) or do they use tons of heavily processed ones (refined sugar, enriched flour, vegetable oils, artificial ingredients, food coloring, preservatives)? Let them take a look and guess!
