The holidays are one of my favorite times of year, but I have to admit, I could live without seeing yet another Christmas cookie. Don’t get me wrong – I love them! But that’s the problem. Everywhere I turn, there’s a sugar cookie, a frosted cookie, a chocolate chip cookie …. you get the picture. And all of those cookies can be hard to resist. And my little man has been becoming quite the cookie monster as well. So what’s a mom to do? Improvise! There’s no need to say ‘no’ to all cookies, instead just make healthy ones that taste just as good. So that’s what I set out to do. After a little trial and error, I was able to create these super easy high protein banana chocolate chip cookies that contain absolutely no added sugar! Since these cookies are packed full of whole grains, fruit, and protein, they can even be eaten as a healthy addition to breakfast or any meal where you need a bit of a sweet fix.
