Who the heck doesn’t love a good cookie hey?! Nobody, yup, nobody.
Even me, a Nutritionist, I will fully admit, I love a good cookie! These cookies are two things… three things actually – amazingly delicious, healthy, and so darn easy you could make them with your eyes closed.
Get this… they are made with 4 ingredients. That’s it, that’s all my friends! Completely clean-eating friendly and totally up my alley right now with where we are in our challenge ! I wouldn’t even think of putting a cookie in my body right now after all of this hard work we have been putting in – so the fact that I can actually eat these.. it’s wonderful!!
The sweetness in these cookies comes from the banana – and that’s it. No added sugars whatsoever.. so if you are looking for a sugar-high “so-sweet-you-pucker-up-your-face” kind of cookie, I’m sorry but these aren’t them Instead they are rich, moist, and buttery, with a soft slight sweetness, and melt in your mouth delicious!
Every day I get a portioned amount of healthy fats – and the sources can be olive oil, avocado, nut butters, or nuts and seeds. These are my “nut butter” dose of healthy fat as each cookie has just under a tablespoon amount of nut butter! I used a mixture of natural almond and natural peanut butter – I’m sure they would work out fine with cashew butter, or even sunflower butter.. or a combination of the lot!
15 minutes from start to finish and you will be gobbling up these delicious little cookies… in moderation of course
Now, to stick with the theme of “cookies” I decided to do my Fave Five Friday on Good-For-You Cookies I have found in the blogosphere! Check out these delicious little guilt free cookies … yum, yum, yum!!
