Bethenny’s Banana Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies


Yesterday, in the craziness that was me prepping for the week, I made Bethenny’s Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies! In true Bethenny fashion, I “used what I had” and made some changes to the original recipe based on what I had in my kitchen. (a rule from her book Naturally Thin, incase you have never read it) They turned about amazing!

You will need:
1 1/2 cup(s) of whole wheat flour (Bethenny’s recipe uses oat flour, but I didn’t have any on hand)
3/4 cup(s) of rolled oats
1/2 tsp. of baking powder
1/2 tsp. of baking soda
1/2 tsp. of salt
1/2 cup(s) of sugar (Bethenny’s recipe calls for raw sugar)
1/3 cup(s) of dark chocolate chips (Bethenny’s recipe calls for regular chocolate chips)
1 tsp. of vegetable oil (Bethenny’s recipe calls for Canola oil)
1/3 cup(s) of almond milk (Bethenny’s recipe calls for Soy milk)
1/2 cup(s) of banana puree (1 medium-size banana)
1 tsp. of vanilla extract

Now, let’s get baking!

ENJOY!
