Today I am excited to share with you these 3 ingredient Skinny Banana Cookies!
Due to my food sensitivities, I have to be careful with what I eat. I have a hard time with Gluten, Dairy, Soy, Corn and a few others. I can eat them…but after a while I don’t feel great and my symptoms come back. So I try to eat the best that I can and avoid the things that bother me. I still cook and bake regularly for my family our usual recipes and always adjust a small portion (when I can) for my self to fit my dietary needs. Most of the time this has been working out okay. I have learned for the most part what I can eat and what I can’t through trial and error.
The other day I was CRAVING a chocolate chip cookie something fierce! Did I mention that I recently went off of sugar for a couple of months? I have been trying to do this every so often when I feel my sugar addiction is getting the best of me. Hence, I think I was in a “sugar craving”. I knew I couldn’t make real chocolate chip cookies or else I would be in danger of totally gorging myself on them :).
So I made the next best things…Skinny Banana Cookies! These are surprisingly good! They satisfied my craving without completely unraveling my sugar fast or causing side effects for my food sensitivities! Win…Win situation! These cookies are only 3 ingredients and are so easy to make. All you need to make them are some ripe bananas, oats, and then your favorite add-in. I chose Chocolate Chips to curb my cravings, but you could use sunflower seeds, nuts, cranberries, a dash of cinnamon or raisins (or really anything add in you can think of)!
