Banana Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Curtis and I never eat all of the bananas before they turn too ripe. I also only like bananas when they are still a bit green, so once they are full yellow I’m not interested anymore. I usually make banana bread/muffins/loaf/etc. so that the ripe bananas don’t go to waste.

I figured I’d try something a little different this time. I found a recipe for some healthy ‘cookies’ with only three ingredients. I figured I’d give it a try.

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Mash up the bananas, stir in the oats and chocolate chips, and drop onto the pan! Cook at 350 for 12-15 minutes.

They hold together better than I expected they would, and they taste pretty great! Super simple and quick, and less guilt than a traditional cookie! Win win.

Day 8 of #100happydays – Cooking a great dinner at the end of a long day

Day 8 of my #100happydays challenge, and I’m still just busy at a bee. After a long week – and weekend – of running around and trying to get all my stuff done, it’s great to just take a breather and cook a nice dinner for Curtis and I. Just a simple chicken and shrimp stirfry with some veggies and honey garlic sauce. I love making dishes like this because it always gives us leftovers for the next day. Yum!

Day 5 of #100happydays – Fruity goodness snacks

Day 5 of my #100happydays challenge is food. This is a trend that I foresee continuing for the remainder of this challenge because, let’s face it, I love food. I have very little time to do any type of food prep for my day. With everything I have going on, I spend my days running from school to work to errands to appointments to meetings and somewhere in there trying to make it home to sleep, eat, and shower. On my ways from point A to point B,C,D, and E, I try to stop at a grocery store – rather than a drive-thru – to grab something to eat. These pre-cut mango spears have become a new favourite of mine. I can grab them quick on the run and still feel good about what I’m eating. Nom nom nom :)
