Today we are making healthy cookies. As a mom, I know there is one thing that my child will never turn down, a cookie. A cookie can make all things right with the world. Unfortunately, most cookies are just processed sugar, bleached flour, and fat. I wanted to come up with a cookie that was not only healthy, but also good for you. Behold: Sneaky Cookies!
Just 6 ingredients, not only are these cookies super easy and affordable to make, but that are also very good for you. And the fact that they are in cookie form means even the most picky pallets will enjoy them! They are also gluten free, vegan, and all of that wonderful stuff. They have chia seeds in them, which are a whole grain food but naturally free of gluten. They are full of protein, fiber, Omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients. There is no butter and no sugar in these cookies! The sweetness comes from the tiniest bit of agave nectar, which we all know has the most favorable glycemic profile. So yes, these healthy cookies are winners in many ways.
2 ripe bananans
2 tsp agave nectar
2 tsp chia seeds
2 carrots, shredded
1 cup oats
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Mash your bannanas, then mix together all of the ingredients. Form into balls and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. (See? Told you it was simple.)
