SPD: HEALTHY COOKIES




Saw It. 
Pinned It. 
Did It.

Today's pin of choice?

Healthy breakfast cookies. 
That's not to say you can't eat these mid-day like I've been doing.
You all know I'm obsessed and love this easy breakfast cookie I posted a while back,
but these are a new favorite in my rotation. 

These were spotted first from this pin (gotta love the fabulous Skinny Taste)

Healthy Cookies | Skinnytaste

Not only are these cookies gluten free {just use gluten free oats}, dairy free, vegetarian, vegan, etc.
they have only...drum roll please...

THREE INGREDIENTS.
 In the original recipe, it uses walnuts but I decided to switch it up and use almonds instead because I like them more.


These cookies can be made in 20 minutes from start to finish.
So many things to love about these right now...
or is this just me?

 Here's what you do:
 


1. Preheat oven to 350. Spray a non-stick cookie sheet with cooking spray. Mash up the two bananas. Make sure you are using bananas that are really ripe!

2.Chop up your almonds (I used a mini food processor) so that you have 1/4 cup.

3. Combine mashed bananas and 1 cup oats (uncooked). Stir. Fold in the almonds.

4. Place a tablespoons (or the size desired) on the cookie sheet.

5. Bake for 15 minutes. Makes 16 cookies.


VOILA.
I love pinning recipes so I can just pull it up on my phone and make them quickly.
Pin these if you fancy!
Not much I love more than seeing my recipes/projects pinned (seriously).
 
If you don't like almonds, you can really substitute anything in these and they would be great.
I was talking with Meghan (love her blog) and she sent me this amaze recipe.
They are cookies similar to this but have peanut butter and vanilla in them.
Definitely going to make them soon!
