I’ve been looking for a recipe for healthy cookies for quite a while. Cookies that could be tasty and nutritious, and as always, diabetes friendly. I am very glad to have found yesterday this great recipe of Banana, oatmeal and chocolate chips that combines only these three ingredients and no flour! Wow, exactly what I wanted! No, wait, there is more.. no sugar added either! Just the sweetness from the ripe bananas mixed with the taste of dark chocolate and oats. Brilliant! So delicious!
My bananas were ripe and ready to go and I could not resist to bake them right away. It took me 15 min, baking time of 25 min, eating time… 10 min… maybe less :)! It was a great evening snack and it will be a “must have” here at our home.
Here is my version of the cookies.
Healthy banana, oats and chocolate chip cookies – no flour added
2 ripe bananas mashed
1/2 cup rolled oats ( I used oat bran)
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips ( I used dark chocolate to be diabetes friendly)
3 1/2 tbs canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
Mix all the ingredients together and let it rest for 15 min, to allow the oats to soak in the bananas.
Drop teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto the baking tray. They do not rise, so you can put then close together but not touching each other.
Bake for 20 to 25 min or until they are slightly brown. Don’t worry they will be still soft. Let them cool off and they will harden up.
Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
