Every now and then I get a sweet craving, but I am always looking for a healthy way to satisfy my sweet tooth without feeling crappy and sugared-out afterwards. Lindsay, a registered dietitian writing for The Lean Green Bean blog provided the perfect recipe- and I plan to make it again! I followed her recipe exactly as follows:
1/3 C mashed avocado (mash very well or cookies may have green lumps!)
2/3 C peanut butter (I used creamy Smuckers all-natural)
3 Tbsp honey
3/4 C oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 C dark chocolate chips (I used the darkest to reap the most health benefits, 88% cacao)
Combine all of the wet ingredients first, then stir in the dry ingredients, add chocolate chips, and bake @350 degrees for 12-14 minutes. Makes about 12 cookies.
