Yes..you read that right....Healthy Cookies!!! But seriously these are no equivalent to a regular cookie but is a great substitute when you are craving something sweet but don't want to eat junk. These taste best when eaten right away. They are very versatile so you can change them up in so many different ways. Just be careful to add no more than 2 tbsp of add-ins otherwise they may fall apart. You could also try it with different nut butters to vary the flavour. How healthy or unhealthy they are really depends on what add-ins you choose to mix in. These are also a great way to use up any overripe bananas. I find the more ripe the bananas the better these cookies are.
Adapted from Skinnytaste
1 ripe banana (mine was very ripe)
1/2 cup quick oats
1 tsp peanut butter
2 tbsp of any add-ins of your choice (I used 1 tbsp walnuts and 1 tbsp of toffee bits. You could use all nuts or even add chocolate chips)
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl, mash the banana and add the remaining ingredients. Stir until combined. Drop by tablespoon on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes. Cookies taste best when eaten right away.
