  • 2 ½ cups quick-cooking oats
  • 4 cups Cheerios
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. applesauce
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter
  • cup honey
  • 1 banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup ground flax seed
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  •  Add oats and Cheerios to food processor (or blender) and pulse for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fully combined and broken up. You don’t need a flour-like consistency, just broken up very small.
  • In a small, microwave-safe bowl, add butter, applesauce, peanut butter, and honey. Microwave for 60-90 seconds, until butter begins to melt, then whisk together until combined.
  • In a separate small bowl, add banana, egg, and vanilla extract. Mash banana and mix together well.
  • Add all dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl – oats and Cheerios mixture, ground flax seeds, baking soda, and salt. Mix dry ingredients well to combine.
  • Pour all wet ingredients into bowl with dry ingredients. Mix well to combine.
  • Using a 2-ounce ice cream scoop, drop 12 level scoops onto a lined baking sheet. Then flatten and shape them into cookies. They will not spread while cooking.
  • Bake for 12 minutes.
  • Allow to cool and enjoy!
