Low Fat Banana Oat Nut Cookies

Warning- these are like crack cocaine. I found the recipe on Skinny Taste from Gina. I modified it a little, but essentially it was the same, so you can run over there to get it. These are like banana bread in cookie form, which to me means, they are acceptable as breakfast food. They are gooey, and have oats and nuts in them so I was sold. I made these because I had some naners that were on their way out and a million packets of instant oats from forever ago that we never touch.

My modifications are listed below. Heed Gina's suggestion that you do not want to make these while you are alone in the house. I've eaten four. Yummers. 

Serving Size: 2 cookies
Points: 4pts (Pts+ 5)
Calories: 175.8

I used 1 cup old fashioned oats and 1 cup instant (which was 2 pkg of banana cream oats and 1 pkg of maple and brown sugar since that's what I had).

Picture of my mushed banana. See how brown it was?
Mushed like a dream.
Go. Make these now.

It's been a while since I've posted. I have been really sick and today was my first day back in the kitchen. It felt so good to be cooking and grocery shopping again! I feel like a human being. I am not looking forward to weighing tomorrow, but I should be back to posting (and eating) as usual soon!


  1. Mmmm. I'm obsessed with all things banana lately. These remind me of the Bethenny Frankel banana cookies I just made.

  2. Yum! They look good and I am definitely going to have to give them a try. I love banana in everything lately.
