Cookie Monster

25 Jun

One of my super-healthy besties recently intro’d me to this delishy treat. We were drinking wine and watching Bravo at her apartment one PMS-y evening and I demanded she share the Halloween candy I know she keeps in her pantry for such occasions. She quietly got up, disappeared into the kitchen, and emerged with a plate of warm cookies shortly thereafter. Only they weren’t “real” cookies at all.

Have I told you that I love you lately, Erin? I’ll take 3.

1 super ripe banana

1/2 cup oats

A good shake of cinnamon, and whatever else you want to add. (Tonight I added walnuts and blueberries dark chocolate chips because I had them on hand, but I want to try lots of yummy things – like cacao nibs and dried cherries, or chia seeds and almond butter)

Smoosh the crap out of it, stir it up, fashion cookie shapes from the “dough” and bake for about 15 minutes at 350.


And you’re welcome. (I’ll tell Erin you thanked her)
