Where the last two months have gone, I couldn’t tell you…I blinked and it was 2014! That being said, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year all in one to you lovely readers!
What better way to jumpstart this new year than with cookies? Easy, peasy one-bowl cookies that are good for you. They aren’t your traditional buttery cookies with a crisp edge and a gooey middle. Nope, these are light two or three-bite goodies that can triple as a light snack, healthy portable breakfast or a sweet ending to a meal when your sweet tooth hits. I’d say they are a mix between banana bread, baked oatmeal and a granola bar all in one?
These delicious oaty bites were lightly adapted from Nicole’s Trail Mix Cookies over at Colie’s Kitchen. I was thrilled to be assigned her blog this month for the first Secret Recipe Club reveal of the new year! As Nicole phrases it, her site “isn’t necessary a recipe blog, but a blog based on the views from my side of the world, or my side of the table so to speak.” I have a few more recipes I can’t wait to try, such as her Parmesan Meatloaf Muffins, Shrimp Etouffee, and Serendipity’s Frozen Hot Chocolate…yum!
I didn’t alter much; I used gluten-free oats, added a bit of flaxseed meal to the dough and decreased the milk by 1 tablespoon. I upped the “add-ins” and used a combo of both fruit and nuts for added texture and flavor. I’ll be making these again and experimenting with different combinations…these were SO easy and delicious!

This sounds YUMMY, I’ve got another batch of cookies to try out. Looks like maybe a bake off weekend for me! 😀 Supposed to get snow so that works.

Wonderful Recipe for cookies~Great SRC choice! Lynn @ Turnips 2 Tangerines
Thanks for the recipe, I made them last night. Great flavor, not wild about the texture (probably the mushed up bananas). Might test using apples. I also added chocolate chips and loved it.
Super healthy way to kick off the year! I love these. Great SRC pick!!
With a description of, ” A mix between banana bread, baked oatmeal and a granola bar all in one” you sure caught my attention. These sound so tasty! Great job this month!
These look great and the photos are wonderful! Love the polka dot fabric too =)
These sound awesome and would be great and hearty to take on trips or maybe between soccer games.
