Recipe Review: Healthy Cookies

I enjoy eating bananas, but they always get too ripe before I am ready to eat them! Thanks to the tin foil solution, I haven't had that problem much any more. However, I still have a bunch of bananas in the freezer that I need to use. My husband prefers that I make Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, but recently I have been looking for a healthier ways to use those ripe bananas.

When I found these Healthy Cookies on Pinterest I thought that they were too good to be true. I was excited, because they did not have many ingredients and were low in pointsplus values.

I'm excited to share this new recipe review with you and hope that you enjoy it!

Ingredients: bananas, quick oats, and walnuts

Crush, mash, and mix all the ingredients together.

Place a tablespoon of each on cookie sheet.

The finished product!

These are in the oven now, I can't wait. I added a pinch of salt and cinnamon and put in cinnamon chips instead of walnuts. I used a small cookie scoop and got 12 cookies. 1 PP each for 1, 3 PP for 2 and 4 PP for 3 cookies using these ingredients in 12 cookies per recipe. Thanks, I can't wait to try them.
