These gluten free chocolate chip cookies are naturally sweetened with banana and made with a secret ingredient so they’re high protein! Easy and healthy!
From the C to the double O and then the K-I-E-S
It’s COOKIE TIME. Nah nah nah nah nahhhhh.
I honestly don’t even know where that came from. These healthy peanut butter cookies just told me that they wanted a theme song. So I gave them what their soft-chewy and just a lil-ooey-gooey-melty-chocolate-chip hearts desired.
Quit googling therapists in the Washington Area. Mr. FFF has already beat you to it.
Now pull up a chair, or an exrcise ball if you’re one of those “interesting” folk who feels the need to even burn calories when sitting down. Not that I’m judging you because being extra-uber healthy is jazzy and cool and HIP.
On second thought, I’m judging you. Leather sofa > exercise ball. TRUTH.
You’re confused. Stay with it. It’s going somewhere YUM.
BECAUZZZ they’re made from About Time’s Protein Pancake Mix! We discussed it previously in its actual, true, protein pancake form. But then it told me that it wants some variety in its just-mix-it-with-water-and-it’s-so-good life.
I see you opening a new tab, with your fingers hovering over “G-O-O-G-L-E.” STAP IT.
I totally understand its thought process though. Water is good. But bananas and peanut butter are better. <– Solid life statement right thurr.
Ever since the Breakfast Bars last week, I have been kind-of-sort-of-okay-TOTALLY obsessed with using bananas in place of eggs. Or in place of sugar. Basically, I have just wanted to shove bananas into absolutely anything that is also shoved into my mouth.
Except zucchini lasagna. That’s weird.
Not that I learned from experience. Hypothetically speaking.
So. Obvi I had to add some banana into those cookies for the hint of sweetness that they needed. And peanut butter. Because it’s peanut butter. It really doesn’t need explanation. It also happens to be MADE for bananas. Like, they could just skip through fields of daisies hand in hand ALL DAY LONG, braiding each other’s hair, and no one would even bat an eyelid. That kind of made for each other.
And these little bites of general food heaven and D-LISH are made for your protein-loving-healthy-breakfast-soft-and-chewy-but-kind-cakey cookie loving face.
Especially since above mentioned face can be full of ‘em in 15 minutes FLAT. Like, from start TO YUM.
