Peer Pressure: Just Say Yes!

Let me hear you say it

yes!

..a little louder

Yes!

Still cant hear youuuu

Yes!Yes!Yes!..To healthy cookies!

Theres nothing like a yummy plate of cookies that taste and smell amazing!

A friend sent me this recipe from a food blog, and today was the day that I felt like making them! This recipe literally took me 5 minutes to whip up SO easy!!

Nikkis Healthy Cookies (from 101cookbooks.com)

3 large, ripe bananas, well mashed (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup coconut oil, barely warm so it isnt solid (or alternately, olive oil)
2 cups rolled oats (i used gluten free)
2/3 cup almond meal
1/3 cup coconut, finely shredded & unsweetened
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
6 7 ounces chocolate chips or dark chocolate bar chopped

Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients together. Bake for 15 minutes.

*The only changes I made were to use almond butter instead of coconut oil, and I double the salt! Oh and aslo, Nikki makes little ball cookies out of hers, I made huge flat ones!

Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm in my tummy and if you make these, in yours too!!

You know what else I like besides cookies, PLAYING WITH MY FOOD!

While I was cutting veggies for a stir-fry I am planning on making, I remembered reading a post the other day that got creative with peppers. Well, it just so happened that I was in the mood to play with my food and be a little festive. Thanks Healthful Pursuit for giving me the idea!

Who says peppers and bean sprouts cant be scary?
