Healthy Oatmeal Date Breakfast Cookies
- First, I used old-fashioned rolled oats and do not recommend using a quick-cooking oat in this recipe.
- I used almond butter, but you can substitute cashew butter or peanut butter.
- Additionally, I used a combination of dried fruit, dates and mango, in my cookies. You can use any one dried fruit or a combination of 2 or 3 as long as the total is 3 tablespoons. As well, you may use freeze-dried fruit if you prefer.
- You can use stevia, sugar, or omit the sugar altogether if you don’t have much of a sweet tooth. I used one tablespoon granulated sugar.
- Most notable, the riper the banana the sweet it will be. If you have a very ripe banana, you may want to use less sugar.
- Finally, store cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
Healthy Oatmeal Date Breakfast Cookies are moist and soft. They use simple ingredients that have tons of flavor.

Is there possibly anything that could be substituted for the banana? I know there is probably a very slim chance there is, but I have a latex allergy that unfortunately causes me to be allergic to bananas as well. (Both plants share the same protein that causes my allergic reactions. It’s so sad, because I used to LOVE bananas!!) It’s frustrating all of the yummy and healthy goodies I have to miss out on.
You can use apple sauce. Add more oats if needed if the mixture is too soft.
These are wonderful. I used sunflower oil butter, and dried apricots, honey instead of sugar, nuts, and topped them off with cinnamon. They were awesome.

Please, how many calories in one of your oatmeal date breakfast cookies? Thank you.
I know there are programs online that you can google to find and plug the ingredients in to get that.

Looks like a delicious treat. Thanks for sharing with us at Weekend Potluck. Curious to know…what happens after 2 days in fridge? Not sure we’D eat them all in 2 days?
I’m allergic to nuts and peanut, what else can be used instead?
Are you allergic to all nuts? Any nut butter can be substituted. You may try hummus or leave the nut butter out, but I have not tried either. The nut butter is pretty important in this recipe so I don’t really think there is a suitable substitute.
To Elissa that is allergic to nuts, try SUNFLOWER BUTTER. it is made from sunflower seeds and it is very yummy!

I really like being able to print your recipes without all the photos and comments. I plan to try this healthy oatmeal cookie. Thank you. The ads did not slow down my iPad.

Oops! Almond butter amount? (I’m sure it’s 1/4C but needs to be corrected)
I really like your blog and enjoy your recipes but I’m unsubscribing today because of all the advertising videos which make my computer run too slow and sometimes freeze. It is a brand new HP so this should not be happening but every time I click on your blog it does.
Jan, I am in the process of having a lot of the ads removed. I apologize for this, my ad company has been stalling because they don’t want to so it’s a slow process.

I too am having ad issues…keep crashing and very frustrating.
