Healthy Banana Bread Cookies
These are my daughters favorite in the healthy cookie series.
To date I have brought you: Healthy Cafe Mocha cookies, Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies, Healthy Apple Pie cookies, and Healthy Vanilla Chai Cookies. All of which are scrumptious. So it is time for another classic flavor. My daughter loves banana bread. I find it funny because she does not like banana's. She likes their flavor, but not their texture. So she used to always have me make banana bread. She makes a good one too. The problem is, banana bread is really not good for you. So full of sugar and processed flour. Not really something she should be eating. So I put her favorite flavors in a healthy cookie instead. When she bit into one of these her eyes rolled back and she said "Oh. My. Gosh. Mom, these are the best you have ever made! By far my favorite!". So there you have it. Straight from the expert.
These cookies are suitable for breakfast. 142 wholesome calories in each cookie. (One piece of toast has 130 calories). Full of all things wholesome. Enjoy!
