Easy Oatmeal Cookies without eggs and butter: Gluten-Free Recipe

These oatmeal cookies without eggs and butter are our go-to healthy cookies for kids. Finding a healthy toddler snack can be trying.  You want to find snacks for toddlers that are easy, healthy, and that they will eat.  

Finding the perfect toddler snacks

We have switched full tilt into toddler mode and the taste buds are becoming pickier.

It has been hard, even with the best organic snacks, to keep an excess of sugar out of V’s diet.

I was looking to create an organic toddler snack that I could pass off as a cookie. Something that I could make quick and fresh with minimal prep and with healthy organic ingredients.

20 more healthy and delicious snacks for toddlers!

We love these delicious cookies. They have a nice chewy texture and are so simple to make, they are even gluten-free!

We started with the recipes from some classic cookies. Then we started to experiment. We made at least 10 batches playing around with the recipe. Every batch was good, but we found what we like best.

These cookies have just a hint of sweetness from the honey and a little bit of spice from some cinnamon. Plus they are a fantastic way to use up a ripe banana.

They do not contain any white sugar, all-purpose flour, eggs, applesauce or peanut butter.

All of these simple ingredients are organic, except the honey, which I buy locally and is not USDA Certified.

Ingredients for this eggless cookie recipe:

  • 1 Ripe Banana
  • 1 Tablespoon Melted Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Honey

Then enjoy! It will only make about 9 cookies. If you have any leftovers store them in an air-tight container… that is a big IF… V and I usually split the batch! This is OK, since they are full of healthy ingredients.

Although labeled as toddler snacks you can obviously share with the rest of the family!  These make perfect preschool and after-school snacks!

You can easily double the recipe. As with all of our snack posts you can mix it up too! Add in chocolate chips, raisins, or craisins.

Tips and Common Questions for the best oatmeal cookies

Can I sub quick oats?

Yes! I have done this several times and still get amazing results.

Can the dough be eaten raw?

Yep! Because this oatmeal cookie dough is eggless, it’s perfectly safe.

Can I sub Maple syrup?

You will have to add sugar to sub maple syrup in order to replace the honey. And the ratios are a bit wonky for such a small amount. For best results, we recommend that you stick to the honey.

Tips:

  • To create more symmetrical cookies, you could use a small cookie scoop.
  • You can easily double the recipe.
  • As with all of our snack posts you can mix it up too! Add in dark chocolate chips, raisins, or craisins.
  • This is a sticky dough. You may want to dampen the spoon or scoop with some warm water.
