Oatmeal Banana Protein Cookies



Bananas and applesauce make it possible for this cookie to be moist, while still being low-fat. 


Imagine a mixture between muffins and traditional cookies; soft and spongy, but chewy and crisp at the same time. This recipe has everything I look for in a good cookie... and it includes chocolate :D


Oatmeal Banana Protein Cookies

Makes 18 cookies


Ingredients:

  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, or sweetener of choice (I used 12g of raw stevia, or 6 packets)
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute, or 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup applesauce, or margarine

  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8th teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 cup protein powder (vanilla or chocolate)
  • 1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 6 squares dark chocolate, chopped (equalling 300 calories- I used Lindt dark chocolate with sea salt)
Method:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray.
  • In 1 bowl, mix together first 5 ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix together the rest of the ingredients. Combine the wet with the dry and mix until dough comes together. 
  • Spoon dough onto greased cookie sheet and bake 15 min. For puffier cookies, refrigerate dough for about 1 hour before baking.
