Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Cookies (Egg & Dairy Free)

This post originally appeared on What’s Cooking With Ruthie where I’m a monthly contributor.

A couple weekends ago my husband invited my family over for dinner.  I had already made this Yogurt Lime Cake for dessert but my niece is allergic to eggs and dairy so I wanted to bake something just for her.

I thought these Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Cookies would be the perfect dessert for her but two things happened.  One,  I added chocolate chips (which contain dairy, oops!) and two, she didn’t end up coming over.   I guess adding the chocolate chips didn’t matter after all!  So, if you want these cookies to be both egg and dairy free, just omit the chocolate chips!

These cookies turned out moist and chewy and had the perfect amount of sweetness to them.  If you’re okay with dairy then I would highly recommend adding the chocolate chips…..so good!  My kids were even eating these for breakfast in the morning. Fruit, honey and oats – sounds pretty healthy to me!

I’m sure you could experiment with different kinds of fruit to suit your tastes.  You could also add more or less honey and even throw in some nuts or peanut butter for some protein.  I’m sure the possibilities are endless!

Sour Cream Dill Pickle Dip #GayLeaFoods

Now that summer’s in full swing it seems like the kids can’t get enough of things to snack on.  I always have fresh veggies and fruit on hand but lately we’ve all been tempted by a not-so-healthy snack – chips!   I’m a flavoured chip kinda girl but on occasion I like to indulge in […]

Sweet Potato & Cottage Cheese Tart | A Sweet Baker

Sweet Potato and Cottage Cheese Tart

The only way I ate cottage cheese growing up was with salt and pepper or in my mom’s lasagna. That’s the only way I thought you could eat it.  One day, however, that all changed. One sunny winter day, my husband and I met his Aunt for a day of downhill skiing.   We had […]

  1. Whoops on the chocolate chips is right — haha. At least you got to enjoy them with the chocolate chips and not worry about your friends’ daughter. :) These cookies sound delicious! I would definitely add the chips!

  2. It can be so difficult to make food that meets everyone’s dietary needs! Dairy and eggs are especially hard for baking. You came up with a great cookie solution (ok, so next time no chocolate chips…sub carob chips)!

  3. You know how I love baking with strawberries! Definitely need to try these cookies!

  4. egg and dairy free but look absolutely delicious?! wow! these are fab!

  5. Mmmm I love the strawberry banana combo in these oatmeal cookies, Liz! I pretty much love banana-berry anything, and it just sounds perfect in these cookies. :)

  6. Love that you hid the bananas in there. Although, my kids would love the bananas and strawberries. In fact, they might be a bit hesitant with the chocolate chips. So, let’s just leave those out and I’ll eat them on the side ;) Beautiful pictures.
