Ultimate Healthy Cookies

For those days when you want a cookie, but you don’t wanna eat all that refined sugar… I bring you hope!

Ultimate Healthy Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 2 very, very ripe bananas
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • the good stuff

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Mash the bananas very thoroughly in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the oats, vanilla and cinnamon, mix well, and let stand on the counter for 20 minutes. The oats will soak up the banana liquid and vanilla.
  4. Add in “the good stuff,” better known as whatever you want. Chocolate chips, coconut flakes, raisins, seeds, nuts, whatever floats your boat. I love adding in a little peanut butter powder. Add in about 1/4-1/3 cup of each add-on, and mix well.
  5. Scoop in 1/4 cup scoops (I use an ice cream scoop with a trigger) onto a lined baking tray.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes, until a little golden on the bottom.
  7. Let cool on a cooling rack. Enjoy!
