Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies.
So - this week I am trying to eat very very healthy - a little detox of sorts - mainly just avoiding all of the common allergens - to give my body a little time to heal after the bombardament of holiday decadence. Problem #1: It's only Monday night and I really want some dessert. I have cut out wheat, dairy, soy, peanuts, eggs, refined sugars(just for a week) - basically we're eating veggies, fruits, lean meats, and rice. I've already eaten a lot of fruit today. I don't want fruit at night - I want cookies. So these little babies were born. YUM!!! They even passed the hubby test :)
Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup of oatmeal (I used quick cook)
3/4 cup of Almond Butter
1 banana - mashed
1/3 cup of chocolate chips or raisins
Preheat oven to 350. Mash the banana and add Almond Butter.
Add the oatmeal and chocolate chips or raisins. Mix well. Drop in spoonfuls onto cookie sheet and bake for 7-9 minutes.
Enjoy your guilt free treat!
