A healthy cookie substitute

A healthy cookie substitute

This recipe is for when you are craving a cookie but are trying to keep that summer body. Plus its an easy make!




-peanut butter (or if you want a chocolate taste use nutella)

-nuts, chocolate chips, etc. (optional)

Step by step procedure-

1st- Take a banana that has been peeled and put it in a bowl. Grab a fork and mush the banana until it is more a paste then a solid.

2nd- Take 1/4 a cup of peanut butter and mix it with the banana paste. Till evenly mixed.

3rd- It is now time to add 3/4 a cup of oats. Mix it in with the paste. (This is also when you add any of the optional ingredients from above)

4th- Scoop the mix on a cooking tray (they do not need to be ball formed) and put them in the oven that was preheated at 360 degrees.

Every oven is different but mine usually takes 25 minutes to cook but you take them out when they are crispy on the edges and warm and gooey in the center.

How to serve them-

Everyone has their own opinion on this. It is the time to be creative. I personally like to spread peanut butter on the top of mine and add very small apple chunks that I cut up.

I hope you try and enjoys this!
