Healthy Banana Oat Cookies

I have a sweet tooth. Really, it’s incredible how much dessert I’m willing to eat. And I’m not one to guilt myself after I indulge a little, but I do know I could be doing a little better in the health department. So voila! HEALTHY COOKIES!

Not possible, you say? Well just check out this recipe and see for yourself!

You can dress these up or dress these down any way you like. If you just want to use two ingredients: banana and oats, that’s perfectly fine. If you want to add peanut butter, honey, syrup, agave, dried fruit, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, etc, those are all REALLY TASTY options. But for myself, I just used 2 bananas, peanut butter, oats, and agave. (I kept the honey in the picture cause I was contemplating adding it as well).

So yummy! *IMPORTANT NOTE: The banana ingredient will start to turn brown after too long, which will make the cookies look/go a little bad. That’s why I only made 5 large cookies–they are only good for about a day or so. But they’re so yummy, and next time I think I will add chocolate chips!

Tell me what you think! Do you know of any other healthy cookie recipes? I’d love to try them!
