Today I am sharing a recipe for HEALTHY chocolate cookies. The original recipe was found on http://ohsheglows.com/ but I made a couple of tweaks to it based on what I had available. The recipe originally called for the cookies to be put in the freezer for one hour, rather than placing them in the oven, but I was bringing them to a friends house and did not have time to wait an hour for them to freeze. If you are making these and have the time, I would suggest popping them into the freezer and not baking them. Nonetheless, they were still great baked! Also, in the original recipe it called for dairy free chocolate chips in order to make the recipe vegan. I only had dark chocolate on hand so that is what I used instead.
(One large banana, half a bar of dark chocolate (85 percent or higher to keep sugar content low, half cup of rolled oats, 1 tbsp of pure vanilla, 1 tbsp of cacao)
(Add in ideas: chia seeds, hemp hearts, walnuts, almonds, chocolate chips, honey)
In a bowl combine banana and melted dark chocolate. Add in the cacao powder, oats, vanilla and stir
Form into small cookies and place on baking sheet. If you are going with the freezer option of making these, place them in the freezer directly after forming the cookies.
If you are going with the bake option, place cookies in the oven for no more than ten minutes at 350 degrees. Flipping once halfway through.
