This first recipe caught my attention as I was trying to come up with something to share with my early-morning seminary class. I wanted something that was simple to make, easy to eat (i.e. finger food), tasty yet healthy, and inexpensive too. I also have a student with a very long list of foods to which she's allergic, and was hoping to have something that she could eat as well. That's not too much to ask, is it?
Anyway, since this cookie only had two ingredients - bananas and oatmeal - I figured H would be able to eat them. They were also easy, healthy, and inexpensive. So, I decided to see if they fit the "tasty" requirement as well.
The verdict: the seminary students ate them. They will never take the place of a "real" chocolate chip cookie, with or without oats, but they weren't bad at all. It's nice to have another option when it's time to use up the over-ripe bananas. And even with the nuts and chocolate, they're only 50 calories a piece!
