Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve been trying to stay active and eat relatively healthily throughout my pregnancy so one hashtag I’ve started following regularly is #fitpregnancy. It came in handy recently when I was craving banana bread like crazy and had a hard time finding an healthy recipe in my usual haunts.  I stumbled upon this ridiculously easy and surprisingly delicious cookie recipe that requires just a few basic ingredients. I’ve been making them often and my husband loves them, too. He’s a runner and says they’re the perfect pre-run snack!

For this recipe, you will need:

  1 cup oats
  2 ripe bananas
  1 and 1/2 tbsp peanut butter
  1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a food processor, combine the first 3 ingredients until smooth (if you like your oats a little less chunky, you can grind them a bit first before adding the other two ingredients). Pour the batter into a mixing bowl and add the chocolate chips, stirring to combine.

Spoon teaspoon-sized cookies onto a lightly greased cookie sheet (you should get about 12-15 cookies, depending on how big you like them). Bake for about 15 minutes and enjoy!

Ooh thanks for sharing this! I made healthy cookies from an internet recipe one and it was awful…my mom told me not to serve it to people outside the house. That had applesauce though and I like the addition of peanut butter here. i'll try it soon!

I owe you an email about pregnancy books and will send that soon!

I'm glad the chocolate chips are still just that–chocolate chips and not nibs or cocoa powder, haha! This recipe sounds great. I've gotta get myself a food processor though.

funny how you can leave out all the things you associate with cookies (eggs, sugar, flour) and still create a cookie!
