Are you interested? I was, but I was leery too. Do you know how many times I’ve tested out low calorie or low carb cookies only to be disappointed? So there is good news, bad news and more good news to this post. 1. The taste is great. 2. You should be able to make 12 cookies with the batter for them to be twenty calories each. I ended up with eight and there was no way I could just eat one. 3. There is only 250 calories in the entire batch and their ingredients make them perfect for breakfast!!
The funny thing about these cookies is that these have my typical breakfast ingredients in them already, just manipulated a little differently!
So naturally I added about a tablespoon on butterscotch chips to the batter because butterscotch, oats and cinnamon are amazing together. Yes that does add more calories so decide for yourself if you want to add them in.
Here is what you’ll need:
one large banana, mashed
1/2 oats, this can be gluten free if you get GF oats, I believe Trader Joes carries GF oats.
1/4 tsp baking powder, select GF baking powder if needed for GF diet
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla
pinch of nutmeg
optional: butterscotch chips. Tip: chop chips in half, you’ll feel like you’re getting more and the will distribute better throughout you cookies.
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Add vanilla to mashed banana in a bowl. Stir in cinnamon, nutmeg and baking powder. Once well mixed add in chips.
3. Lightly fold oats into mix but do not over stir.
4. Drop batter onto sprayed cookie sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes. Mine were done in 20.
