I have a sweet tooth, and it’s not easily satisfied with healthier desserts. I’m working on that. These banana oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are helping. They’re healthy chocolate chip cookies that help you fight cravings for sweets, and they stay well in the fridge!
How to Make Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
1. Mash the bananas with a fork. I tried to do them with my mixer, but they didn’t get as mushy as I wanted. The fork works well.
2. Add everything but the chocolate chips to the bowl and mix for 1 minute.
3. Add chocolate chips and stir by hand.
4. Drop large spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet, you should get about 8 cookies per batch.
5. Cook for 18-22 minutes. It’s not easy to tell when they’re done because they’re so dark. I poke them and see if they fall apart. If they start to come apart, give them a few more minutes.
6. Remove and cool, store in the fridge.

This recipe is very easy and happy to have another recipe for ripe bananas other than banana bread.. love this
Just wondering as I’m not a fan of dark chocolate, is there a different chip that can work here? White chocolate? Butterscotch? Or other?
Any other chip you want, as long as you’re not on the 21 Day Fix :) For that, it’s dark chocolate only.
Can I use Quaker Oatmeal instant cereal?
I’ve used quick oats and rolled oats and didn’t notice a difference between the two. I think the instant oats are similar to quick cook so should be fine.
The serving size is two cookies, but then saw it’s 3 pts on blue for *one* cookie. Is this correct?
That is correct. For those on special eating plans always find the counts in the post–they’ll give you the info you need :)
