Healthy Banana Cookies



I have been on this kick lately for healthy alternative desserts. I don't really know if I would classify this as a cookie, but more-so a granola-esk cookie. If I were to make this again I would make them into bars. These would definitely be a nice pre-workout food. I was eating these "cookies" right before I was working out, and boy did I have a lot of energy. These were so good, I got many compliments on them at work which is always nice, especially when they're healthy... because I find many people give an odd face when they hear "healthy cookies" but yeah! These are definitely a must-try cookie!
