Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I find a lot of healthy cookie recipes require at least 3 ripe bananas, which is fine for the average person who may not be a very good banana planner.

I happen to be an amazing banana planner, and rarely have over-ripe bananas in my freezer.

I love this recipe for healthy oatmeal cookies (adapted from the lovely ladies at Living Kitchen) because it only requires 1 banana, and easy and delicious.

These cookies are made with 100% whole grains, and instead of using refined white sugar and butter – it calls for their healthy counterparts: honey, coconut oil & 1 banana.

Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients
Dry
2 cups oats
½ cup spelt flour (or other whole grain flour)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
⅛ tsp sea salt
Wet
¼ cup honey (unpasteurized) or agave nectar
¼ cup coconut oil (melted)
1 egg
1 banana, mashed
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Method

Preheat oven to 375.

In a medium-size bowl, combine all dry ingredients together. In a small bowl, mash banana, and mix in the rest of the wet ingredients.

Combine wet & dry ingredients and stir to combine.

At this point batter should be placed in refrigerator to firm up for 10 minutes. Place on a baking sheet (makes about 16 medium-sized cookies) lined with parchment paper, and bake for 8 min at 325.  Cookies may appear undercooked. Leave on tray 5 minutes or until set.

Cookies freeze well. Enjoy!
