The Healthy Cookie


As many of you may know, I'm on the road to being healthy, happy and fit. Many of you may not know, I have a massive sweet tooth, it's so hard to resist all those treats. Over the next few months I will be trying to find or come up with recipes for healthy meals and treats starting with the beloved cookie. This is such a good healthy version of a cookie, simple, cheap and only 3 ingredients! 

So all you will need is bananas, oats and dark chocolate chips, you can have milk or white chocolate but dark is better for you, I prefer dark chocolate now too. 

Step one: Mush 3 medium or 4 small ripe bananas into a paste. Then gradually add in a handful of oats at a time, I put in like half a bag, but it depends how you feel with the consistency.
Step two: When the mixture is quite thick and all the oats are covered in banana, add in your chocolate chips, a little or a lot, depending  on how healthy you want your healthy cookies. 
Step three: Get two baking trays and cover them with grease proof paper, shape your cookies and place them evenly. Because there is no flour the cookies won't rise or change shape while cooking. 
Step four: Place them into a pre heated oven gas mark 5 for 15-20 minutes or until you can touch the top of the cookie and it has hardened slightly. 
Step five: Enjoy your tasty cookie, or two, or three, without any guilt. 

Let me know if you guys make them!

  3. I certainly hear you, so hard to resist a treat! I have the same problem, it's so tough.. I have seen a similar recipe, but with flour. I'm glad yours excludes the flour! I love making cookies with healthier ingredients so I'm not as guilty when I eat them. PS Love the title picture, it's quite fancy ;) ;)

    Much Love,

    1. No! Not at all, just keep it quite banana based than oat based :)
