So here I am with another summary and recipe from my healthy baking adventures, :)
This one is a bit unusual (well... of course), but once you take the first bite, it quickly grows on you. It did with me anyway... I hope to make them again! A sweet, tasty, flourless cookie; and it even has chocolate in it! :D
The whole of our ingredient list consists of: oatmeal, bananas, coconut milk, applesauce, dark chocolate, vanilla, and cinnamon.
(It'd probably be best to use bananas a little riper than the ones shown! :p)
If you want a less oatmeal-y texture, I might suggest trying quick oats.
Instead of chocolate chips, I used dark chocolate bars (85% cocoa), and just broke it into small chunks.
You can bake them directly like this, or you can use a spoon to press them down a bit, since they don't flatten on their own. Either way, they taste the same! (I tried both ways, haha, *smiles*)
So give these cookies a try! A delicious, healthy snack for when you're craving a bite of something sweet. I love them.
Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip CookiesIngredients
- 3 ripe bananas (mashed)
- 1/3 cup applesauce
- 2 cups oats
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 cup 85% dark chocolate (chopped)
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
Mix ingredients together until well blended. Spoon onto greased cookie sheet, and press down (they don’t flatten on their own). Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 15-20 minutes.
So there you have it. Fabulous sugar-free cookies. Again, a warning. If you consume sugar regularly, these aren't going to taste very sweet to you. But they're plenty sweet for those like me, who haven't had sugar in awhile. I would recommend you stop making you usual chocolate chip cookies (which you know aren't good for you), and let your taste buds grow to love these instead! ;D :)
I found the original recipe written in on a random (unhealthy) cookie pin on pinterest. Not sure what was going on there. But anyway, the original recipe went as follows:
" Healthy cookies - 3 mashed bananas (ripe), 1/3 cup apple sauce, 2 cups oats, 1/4 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup dark chocolate, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon. preheat oven to 350 degrees. bake for 15-20 minutes. NO SUGAR! "
Thank you for your time and interest, :) To our health! :) :)
