Need a sweet snack? Try these yummy and simple banana chocolate chip cookies with no added sugar.
•1 banana smashed
•1 cup of rolled oats
•1 egg white
•1 tsp baking powder
•1 tsp vanilla
•Chocolate chips (I used about 1/4 mini semi sweet chips)
Set oven at 350. Grease a cookie sheet and scoop a spoonful onto the sheet. Bake for 10-12 mins. Makes about 10-12 cookies
35-40 calories per cookie.
I have seen a lot of healthy cookie recipes using bananas on Pinterest, but this one was easy and tastes great! I found this recipe on a friend’s Facebook page.
Today I was in the mood for egg salad… which never happens. Egg salad, made the traditional way can be full of unhealthy fat and unwanted calories (upwards of 800 calories per cup). So I thought I would try to make my own using healthy ingredients. Here is what I did.
•Scramble 2-3 egg whites (or use the egg whites of 2-3 hard boiled eggs)
•Smash half of an avocado
•Dash of salt and pepper
•One slice of Ezekiel bread
I mixed the cooked egg whites, smashed avocado, and slat and pepper together until the eggs are well covered. Let it cool in the refrigerator for 10-20 minutes. Toast your bread. Serve cooled egg salad on top of your toasted bread. SO GOOD!
