Banana Oat Cookies

Who doesn’t love cookies? I know I do. I could eat them all day, everyday haha. But that wouldn’t be the best thing for me. So I came up with the best solution; a healthy cookie. The one you can eat everyday, without “feeling guilty”. Yes, with little quotes around the words feeling guilty, ‘cause you should never feel guilty when eating a cookie!!

Serving 9 cookies

Ingredients:

-         2 Bananas
-         ½ tsp Vanilla
-         60 gr Rolled oats
-         60 gr Instant oats
-         30 gr Dark chocolate chips
-         Pinch of salt

Instructions:

1.    Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius
2.    Mash the bananas; make sure there are no big lumps left. And stir in the vanilla.
3.    Add both of the oats and mix very well.
4.    Add the chocolate chips and fold them in carefully.
5.    Make 9 little round cookies on a baking paper lined baking tray.
6.    Sprinkle a little bit of salt on every cookie.
7.    Bake the cookies for about 12-15 min.

Have patience and let them cool completely, haha. Now go and eat!

(Keep in fridge!)
