Baking Needs to Happen More Often.

Baking Needs to Happen More Often.After coming across Skinny Monkey Cookies on Pinterest I decided, hey now.. that sounds pretty good. So here you have it! I followed this recipe here from Once a Month Mom. These are a great option if you need your cookie fix but want to avoid everything else that comes along with cookies, like a cookie bum. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. -Mash 3 banana's in a large bowl-Mix in: 2 cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats1/4 cup creamy peanut butter1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce1 tsp vanilla extractdash of cinnamon (optional)Let batter stand for approximately 20 min. By the teaspoonful drop batter onto an ungreased cookie sheet, sprinkle with cinnamon if desired and bake for 10-13 minutes.Just for the record, I did this all wrong. SO wrong. I completely forgot to let my batter sit for 20 minutes AND I didn't have ungreased cookie sheets. I used a baking thing-a-ma-jig but I don't think it was the correct item to be using. Either way, we loved the cookies! So I suppose there is room for error with these. Or not?Nutritional Facts: 47 Calories, 7.5g carbs, 1.6g fat, 1.5g protein, 1.3g fiber, servings.... 30?!?! yeah, I did this totally wrong. If you make them properly, all of the above is true. I decided to make servings of 12 so my cookies have about 130-150 calories in them. Not awful but wow, I better stay focused next time. :)Baking Needs to Happen More Often.
