It is no secret that I love cookies. But I really need to get my sweet tooth under control. On the other side of that, I tend to get grumpy if I don't get a sweet treat.
Here is a clean eating, nut-free cookie that definitely satisfied my sweet tooth!
It is SO healthy that you can eat it for breakfast or as a snack after your workout.
Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 ripe bananas
1/3 cup sunflower seed butter
2/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
1 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (to go vegan use carob chips OR dried fruit!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl mash the bananas. Add the remaining ingredients through nutmeg and stir until blended. Add the oats and chocolate chips, stir til blended.
Spoon a rounded tablespoon of the cookie dough onto the lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
Store in an airtight container, refrigerated for optimum freshness.
