Taste of Tuesday {Healthy Banana and Oatmeal Cookies}

Happy Tuesday friends!! It is Friday in our house aka the day before hubby is off for his "weekend" yay!
So if y'all have been following along, I am trying to lose some weight. Yep, just like the rest of the world is right now. I jumped on that bandwagon faster than you could yell chocolate covered potato chips. Good thing nobody did actually yell that cause I would have jumped right back off! Honestly I have yet to try those by the way, but they sound perfect.

Anywho, I have been writing down everything I eat, counting calories, and tracking on my fitness pal app with the best of em. I'm working out almost everyday too. Yay me.... now to just keep this momentum going so that I can be one of those gym rats who sticks around longer than February 1st. With a sugar addiction as cray as mine I HAVE to find substitutes for foods I have decided I cannot live without. Dessert is one of those things. I tend to fall off the healthy eating spree when my brain is screaming at me.... SUGAR.... NOW. Then I will "bake cookies for my family" so that I can just taste the batter, and maybe lick the spoon, the bowl, my fingers.... and then it happens. COOOOKKIIEES. There goes one, two.... sometimes more. So the first day I started this new lifestyle I very quickly found a cookie that would not break the scale. You guys, even my husband loves them. WINNING!
k, yeah sorry for that.
You've got to give these a try. They could actually be eaten for breakfast, but for that I would leave out the dark chocolate chips. That's a lie. I wouldn't, but you could.



- 3 Mashed Bananas (extra ripe works best)
- 1/3 cup apple sauce
- 2 cups oats
- 1/4 cup Almond Milk
- 1/2 cup Raisins (optional)
- 1/4 cup Dark Chocolate Chips (optional)
- 1 tsp. Vanilla
- 1 tsp. Cinnamon

*** mix, drop in spoonful's onto cookie sheet, and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.***

Yep, it's that easy (and delicious) lovelies.

Those look delicious! So much easier to stick to a diet when the food tastes good too.
