Banana Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies


These were a bit of an experiment. I wanted to make cookies but didn't have a lot of time and wanted them to be nutritious and delicious. I had too many bananas sitting around at home so started there and let the creativity flow. The result? Delicious, nutritious cookies!


The banana in these cookies provides a high nutrient energy boost, the oats are an anti-inflammatory source of fibre, and the almond butter adds a boost of protein and healthy fat to the mix. Add a little dark chocolate, vanilla, and cinnamon and you've got yourself a delicious snack or even breakfast. Who says you can't eat cookies for breakfast? Especially if they're as nutritious as these ones!
