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!
