• Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

    February 10, 2009

    These Banana Oatmeal Chip cookies taste way too delicious to be good for you. Surprisingly, they are equally nutritious as they are delicious! Super star ingredients include: ground flaxseed meal, banana, soy milk, agave nectar, whole wheat flour, walnuts, and canola oil. Sounds like an all-star cast to me! Added bonus: these cookies are vegan! :mrgreen:

    Tina, this recipe is seriously one of the best things ever… I can’t believe how healthy it is (given it’s cookies, at least) for how delicious it is. I’ve made this several times and each time I share them with people, I’m asked for the recipe. You better believe I just point them straight to your blog 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    These cookies are fantastic! I have made them a few times this week with honey (no agave) and I used almond milk (no soy). These cookies passed taste test with my my daughters (4 and 21 mths), my parents and my husband. I would love to know nutritional information. We keep them in fridge and they taste great! Thanks for recipe!

    Loved these, thank you for the recipe. I use LSA (linseed, sunflower, almond) mix and flax meal and also substituted coconut oil for the canola – yum! Made it a bit liquidier so add a bit more LSA and oats. Thanks again for sharing!

    These are the best cookies I have ever had. Fact. Super easy and fun to make as well. I used dark chocolate chunks for that gooey melted chocolate effect and pecans. I am not ashamed to admit I ate half of it straight out of the oven!

    almond milk vs. soy milk do you think this will substitute well?

    Delicious! Subbed unsweetened almond milk and coconut oil. Added pecans instead of walnuts. I got 32 cookies from this recipe. Decreased choc chips to 1/3 cup dark choc chips. Nutrition info per cookie came out to 44 cal, 1.7 g fat (15 cal from fat), 7 g carbs. Yummy!
