(Almost Good, Almost Nasty) Healthy Oatmeal Banana Cookies – Chelsea

Great snack for Rosie and I. She hasn’t realized they are healthy yet! You may or may not think these are yummy, but they make a decent sugar fix for the desperate dieter.

· 3 ripe bananas

· 2 cups oats

· 1/2 cup skim milk

· egg

· 2 tablespoons Splenda sugar substitute  (I use 3 tbs real sugar)

· 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

· 1 tablespoon low-fat peanut butter (optional)

· 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

· 1/4 tsp nutmeg (optional)

· Thin vanilla icing (powdered sugar, milk, vanilla)



1.     Preheat the oven to 300°.

2.     Mash the bananas and mix with the oats, milk and egg before adding the remaining ingredients (it just mixes a bit easier and more evenly this way). If it looks a bit runny to you at this point, throw in another handful of oats to thicken it up.

3.     Grease a cookie tray and spoon the mixture on to make around 9 large cookies.

4.     Bake for around 15 minutes until golden brown.


5.     I drizzle vanilla icing over cookies to make them more edible.
