Healthy Cookies

Due to this crappy Hawaii weather, I have been eating like crap. Whatever. I had a major sweet tooth craving last night but knew I needed to quit fattening myself up with junk. Thus I went to my favorite food blog. Score! These cookies have only two healthy ingredients!! Of course, I added some chocolate to it because you know, chocolate is good for the endorphins. So it's still healthy.

Healthy Cookies
adapted from Skinnytaste

Makes 10-12 cookies

 I brought out my fanciest plates, just for this post.

  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup of uncooked quick oats* 
optional- add chocolate chips, cinnamon, walnuts. I added chocolate chip shavings and 1 tsp of cinnamon.


1. Preheat oven to 350°F.  Spray a non-stick cookie sheet with cooking spray.

2. Combine the mashed bananas and oats in a bowl 
(and cinnamon, if you choose to use some).

3. Fold in whatever you choose to add to the recipe and place a tablespoon of each on the cookie sheet.

4. Bake 15 minutes. Eat & enjoy!

*For my gluten free peeps, use gluten free oats such as Bob's Red Mill quick oats.

Sweet craving cured.

I LOVE SkinnyTaste! My sister turned my on to her blog. I've found many recipes that B and I love.

Hope you're doing well, pretty lady!
