These delicious cookies have no added sugar, no flour, no butter, no oil, and still by some miracle manage to be absolutely delicious.

Now, you may be asking yourself if I have been kidnapped and some impostor is baking and blogging in my place, but I assure you, it is me, and I still love pie and cheese.  But for today, I decided to try a healthy recipe.

These cookies are quite good.  Expect the texture to be a bit chewier than a flour-based cookie, with less crunch.  The creaminess of the peanut butter and the textures of the coconut and the chocolate chips definitely make up for that though.

These cookies are best enjoyed the same day, especially right out of the oven.  I stored mine in an airtight container in the fridge though, and they were still really good the next day.

My kids (four and two) loved them.  Enjoy!

A Rumbly in my Tumbly Original

Ingredients:
2 very ripe medium bananas, mashed *don’t use under ripe bananas- your cookies will not be sweet enough
1/4 cup applesauce
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 cups quick cooking oats
1/2 cup sweetened coconut
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, use a potato-masher to mash up the banana.  Mix in the applesauce and the peanut butter.  Add the oats, coconut, and chocolate chips and mix until combined.

Scoop out into 18 cookies (about 1.5 inch balls) and slightly flatten with a fork.  Bake for 15 minutes.

Enjoy!
