A Healthy, Delicious 4 Ingredient Cookie!

Happy Friday!

As you know, I’ve had a crazy sweet tooth during this pregnancy and eating a lot more candy/cookies/chocolate/cadbury eggs than I’d like.  So in an effort to cut back on the crap, I decided to make some cookies which are not only good for you (yep, you heard that right!) but they’re also incredibly easy to make and they taste amazzzzinggg.  I followed the Tone It Up’s ‘3 Ingredient Cookie’ recipe and also added dark chocolate chips to the mix since obviously chocolate makes everything better.

I’m so excited that I have a healthy, chocolate-y, easy treat to bake whenever a craving takes over!

4 Ingredient Cookies 

(from the awesome Tone It Up! blog)

Ingredients

2 medium ripe bananas
1 cup oatmeal
1 scoop Perfect Fit Protein Powder (or you could use any protein powder)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
(Optional ingredients: crushed walnuts, raisins, dried cranberries, peanut butter chips, coconut flakes, almond slivers, etc.)

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.

2. Mash the bananas in a medium size bowl with a fork.  Add the protein powder and depending on how ripe the bananas are, you may need to add a few drops of almond milk or water to make the right consistency.  Lastly, mix in the oats and dark chocolate chips.

3. Drop the cookie dough onto a non-stick cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

And that’s it!  So simple, right?
