If you like chocolate, you'll love these cookies!
- 1 cup oat flour or 1 1/3 cups oats processed in a food processor into flour

- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 4 egg whites
- 1/2 of a ripe banana
- 1 tsp agave nectar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350”F. Combine all ingredients in large bowl. Mix well. Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Flatten dough balls. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove immediately to cooling rack. Cool completely.
I promise that if you love chocolate you won’t be disappointed in these cookies. The best part is that unlike other cookies, a couple of these will really fill you up. No risk of accidentally downing an accidental 1000+ calories by eating the whole batch at once!

If you prefer to stay away from protein powder, you might like these healthy double chocolate cookies instead. In lieu of protein powder, they get their protein boost (and added fiber) from black beans and some egg whites to help bind the ingredients.
They’re naturally sweetened with dates and honey. And they pack added nutritional punch with quinoa flour and flax seed.
I love grabbing a couple of healthy breakfast cookies on my way out the door on busy mornings or as a filling, guilt-free snack during the day.
