Haven't made these because I don't have all the ingredients yet, but they sure looked good on TV.

Oprah Winfrey's Breakfast Cookies

1 1/2 cups rolled oats
2 small Gala apples, peeled, cored, and roughly chopped
4 medium ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup apple juice
1 1/4 cups walnuts, roughly chopped
3/4 cups dried apples, minced
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp oat flour
1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground mace
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Spread the rolled oats evenly on a baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until they are lightly colored and fragrant. Remove from the oven, transfer to a plate, and let cool to room temperature.

While the oats are cooling, coat a nonstick sauté pan with cooking spray. Heat the pan over medium-high heat, add the chopped apples, and cook for three minutes, or until they are tender. Scrape the apples into a large bowl and set aside for about 10 minutes to cool. Add the mashed bananas and apple juice to the cooked apples and stir with a wooden spoon to incorporate.

In a separate bowl, combine the toasted oats, walnuts, dried apples, raisins, oat flour, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, mace, nutmeg, baking powder, and salt. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and, using your hands or a large spoon, mix the dough together. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rest at room temperature for 10 minutes.

Using a 3/4-ounce ice cream scoop, portion 12 scoops of cookie dough onto the silicone mat. Cover the scooped portions of dough with plastic wrap and, using the flat bottom of a glass, press down on the scoops until they are 1/2 inch thick.

Place the cookies in the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until golden brown. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and set on a cooling rack to cool completely. The cookies will keep stored in a plastic container or plastic bag for up to one week.

Author Notes
Note: Each cookie is 3 Weight Watchers points.
