Skinny Monkey Cookies


Here is a great cookie recipe when you are wanting something sweet, but still trying not to rack up the calories and sugar grams. At just 47 calories per cookie, and no sugar, you can't go wrong. To make this recipe a little sweeter I added a few chocolate chips. It gave it a great flavor, & it tasted so good with the bananas! Enjoy.


  • 3 bananas
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Dash of cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips

  • Instructions:

    Preheat oven to 350°F.  Mash bananas in a large bowl and then stir in remaining ingredients. Let batter sit for about 15 minutes, then take a teaspoon and drop it onto a ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon if desired. Bake 10-12 minutes.
