So if it has bananas and oatmeal in it, that makes it healthy right?
Healthy or not, these cookies are delicious. They are so soft and full of flavor. You could swap the chocolate chips for nuts or even raisins but any variation is a winner.
how long do these cookies keep well for?
These cookies keep pretty well, depending on how you store them.
We recommend keeping them in an airtight container to ensure freshness. If you leave them out, they will get dry pretty quick.
We also like to stick a piece of bread in the conniver, to help keep the cookies from going dry. It sounds crazy, but I honestly swear by it. It works, just trust me, or try it for yourself.
They also keep well in the freezer for 1-2 weeks. We again recommend storing them in an airtight container, if you plan on freezing them. It will just ensure they stay fresh, and not so freezer burned.
We also recommend taking them out of the freezer 24 hours before serving, to allow them to thaw. Sometimes microwaving or heating them back up, can cause them to dry out.
what could I do to make these cookies even more healthy?
Although these cookies are somewhat healthy, you could obviously switch out a few ingredients and make them even more healthy.
Here is what we recommend:
-Switch out milk chocolate chips for dark chocolate chips, or sugar free chocolate chips.
-Use coconut or whole wheat flour, in place of all purpose flour.
-Use honey or other natural sweeteners in place of the sugar.
-Use apple sauce in place of shortening or butter
Add a little more flavor:
These cookies are pretty light on flavor. They are delicious, but we recommend, if you desire, adding in more cinnamon, or nutmeg, M & M’s, almonds, pecan bits, macadamia nuts, peanut butter, or vanilla.
These are simple ingredients, that can greatly change the cookie taste, depending on what you prefer.
what banana’s work best for this recipe?
I am a huge banana fan. I however, don’t love when banana’s are brown and soft. I like my banana’s a little green on the ends, and a bright yellow in the middle.
However, for these cookies, they are more sweet the browner the banana. They have had more time to create natural fruit sugars, when they are ripened.
This will make your cookies taste a little sweeter. You are going to love how these taste.
