Food To Be Fit: Choco-Nana Oatmeal Cookies

These simple, 5 ingredient cookies are delicious and so incredibly easy to whip up in a rush! They don't have any white sugar added, but watch the amount of chocolate chips you put in as a lot of them can add unnecessary calories. Remember - moderation with everything is important! Portion control is key when adding chocolate chips to this recipe, and also when eating ONLY one or two cookies :)

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 175 C/ 350 F.
  2. Line baking tray with parchment paper.
  3. Mash bananas in a mixing bowl with a fork. Add chocolate chips, oats, vanilla, and oil. Mix until well combined.
  4. Set aside for 15 minutes. This allows the oats to  absorb some of the liquid; the cookie mixture will thicken and become sticky.
  5. Spoon teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto the baking tray and flatten the dough slightly. The mixture doesn't expand much.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until slightly brown.
  7. The cookies are soft when they are removed from the oven. The cookies will harden slightly when they are cool.
