yummy breakfast cookies

yes. COOKIES!

in my books these are healthy and delicious... even though they're cookies.

what you need:

3 large ripe bananas (i used 4 smaller bananas out of the freezer)
2 cups quick oats
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup raisins (i didn't use these because yuck they're like little mushy brains)
1/3 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup skim milk (i used homo because thats what i drink)
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon

what you need to do:

preheat oven to 350
mash bananas
add everything else and mix together until incorporated.
let sit at least 5 minutes so the oatmeal can soak up the goodness
drop onto cookie sheet in tbsp portions and flatten slightly
bake for 15 minutes.

easy peasy!

and they are delicious... kinda like banana bread and oatmeal cookies had a love child.

AND you can have cookies for breakfast!

BONUS.

hugo loves them (i made him some without the chocolate chips)

next time i think i'm going to add chia seeds in the mix as well... and coconut. because i love coconut and i think it will be even tastier!

hope you enjoy these as much as we do.

tasty tuesday i'm done with you!

i think that from now on i am going to post tasty recipes whenever the hell i feel like it! i can't count how many times i have though about posting a recipe but its not tuesday and i hate pre writing my posts... and then completely forgot about it by the time tuesday rolls around.

here's one that i had a hard time believing.
it seemed too good to be true... too easy to be real...

super easy peanut butter cookies

1 egg
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar.

thats it.
seriously.

preheat oven to 325

mix all 3 ingredients together with a spoon until well blended.
roll into 24 balls (i was lazy and just dropped teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets. they were just fine. no fork marks but i didn't really mind.
bake 20 minutes or until lightly browned
when you take them out of the oven you can put a piece of chocolate on top or leave them plain... whatever you like! let cool on sheet for 5 min and remove to wire rack to cool completely.

i didn't know what to expect with this recipe when i tried it but they are already half gone so i guess its safe to say YUM!

PS.
i did not use the full 1/2 cup of sugar. it was closer to 1/4 cup.
