Yep, you read it right. There is such a thing as a healthy cookie. Gluten-free, egg-free and sugar-free (besides the chocolate chunks). And guess what? They actually taste super yummy.
:: what you’ll need ::
bananas (3 ripes ones)
natural peanut butter or almond butter (1/2 cup)
dark chocolate chunks or chips (1/2 cup to 1 cup)
rolled oats (2 cups)
coconut, shredded (to taste)
vanilla extract (1 tsp)
cinnamon (1/4 tsp)
baking powder (1 tsp)
oil (1/4 cup)
:: how to ::
First, heat the oven to 350. Okay, now, in a large bowl, mash up the bananas, pb, oil and vanilla. In another bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients together. Add the dry mix to the banana and pb bowl and mix together until combined. Now before you move on, please try the “dough”. It’s safe to eat because there aren’t any raw eggs so enjoy and maybe even set some aside. From there, drop spoonfuls of the dough onto a non-stick baking pan. Slide them in the oven and bake for about 12-15 mins.
** warning, they aren’t going to be the perfect round cookie that you might be used to. They almost look like no-bake cookies but don’t let their size or shape fool you. These puppies are amazing and, since they’re healthy, why not eat a couple?
