Healthy Cookies. Yes, HEALTHY Cookies! {Secret Recipe Club ~ August 2012}

Posted Aug 06 2012 12:00pm

My secret blog for this month’s Secret Recipe Club was Everyday Mom , written by Kim, whose love of baking is evident when you browse through her Recipes page! I’m pretty fond of baking myself, so I had fun looking through her archives and trying to decide which delicious-sounding treat I should make: Apple Cake with Maple Frosting (when autumn comes, for sure!)? Maple Mousse (I’d never heard of that one!)? Or maybe Yeasted Coffee Cake (complicated, but - I imagine – totally worth it)?

In the end, I settled for none of these, and instead made a treat that was angelically good in comparison: Banana Oatmeal Cookies , which happened to be her Secret Recipe Club post from last July. If you leave out the chocolate chips (but really, now, who does that?), they have absolutely no added sugar! And while I personally could probably never bring myself to make them without the chocolate chips, I think they would still be perfectly sweet without them because the bananas offer all the sweetness necessary.

You may or may not need quite as many bananas, depending on how big they are. I think mine were larger than  usual, because 4 made the mixture very liquidy. I ended up adding some oat flour to make them more of a cookie consistency, but next time I’ll probably start with fewer bananas and see how it goes. Below is the recipe exactly as I made it.

Banana Oatmeal Cookies (Sugar-Free, Wheat-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free… But Full of Deliciousness!)

  1. Stir everything but the chocolate chips together until blended. Gently stir in the chocolate chips. Place a tablespoon at a time onto greased cookie sheets and bake for about 15 minutes at 350F.

These were so QUICK to make; I could make a batch every week if I had enough bananas!

They were super EASY, too. My Certain Little Someone happily helped me stir and spoon them out.

They are pretty CHEAP, as well, using very few ingredients.

And very HEALTHY, without the added sugars! The natural sugars in the bananas, plus whatever sweetener is in the nut butter and chocolate chips make these perfectly sweet.
