It’s that time of the Season again – to bring out the yummy treats filled with chocolate and candy and all sorts of deliciousness! While we will some some of these treats this year, I’ve tried to find some healthy desserts that we can all enjoy this Christmas! (without the guilt!)
Check out these amazingly quick and easy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies I found on the MyFitnessPal blog! With only 3 ingredients, they only took me 5 minutes to make and it smelled like fresh chocolate chip cookies baking in the kitchen! Let’s get started…
Ingredients for Breakfast Cookies
1 mixing bowl
1 baking sheet
2 medium ripe bananas
1 cup of uncooked Quick Oats
1/4 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
You can also use 1/4 cup nuts, raisins, or whatever you can think of!!
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Spray cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
3. Combine oats and bananas in the bowl. Fold in chocolate chips.
Mix all ingredients
4. Drop by Tablespoon onto cookie sheet. (I usually get 15-16 cookies)
5. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool and enjoy!! (although they are best warm!!)
Now, I want to be completely honest here – I’m not the biggest banana fan ever. I know they are so good for you, but I really have to be in the mood for one and I really don’t like banana flavored things at all! Imagine my shock when these DIDN’T have an overwhelming banana flavor! The next time I make them, I’m going to try adding some cinnamon – because what isn’t improved with a bit of cinnamon??
Now I’m not saying that these will replace my favorite Cowboy cookies from Grandma’s recipe – but they are definitely something I can have on hand on a regular basis and NOT feel guilty about having a couple! Are you ready for the best part? 2 of them are only 96 calories!!!!!
