Not Your Average Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Friday!

The weather is absolutely gorgeous out today and it’s beginning to look a lot like spring..in February.  Nonetheless, it makes me really want to go on a hike or something.  I will definitely have to make some time for that.  Anyways, I was raiding my fridge and pantry trying to figure out what to munch on for a snack.  I then discovered that I had neglected to eat the rest of my bananas before they went very, very…very overripe.

I was trying to figure out what to do with them.  Bananas can be used for so many substitutes: eggs, baking oils, etc.  So, I decided on making some chocolate chip cookies!   Keeping in mind, we are supposed to keep things frugal and outside the box, I am putting my own little spin on your average chocolate chip cookies.  Only 3 ingredients for multiple servings! (12 cookies).

Cost per serving: $1

Ingredients:

-2 ripe bananas (.50 cents)

-1 cup of quick oats (.25 cents)

-1/4 cup of chocolate chips (.25 cents)

Overall Thoughts:

These cookies are actually really good!  They’re not messy, but still gooey.  The texture and appearance is very similar to a monster cookie, which is something anyone can appreciate.  The banana comes through with the taste of chocolate, making it sooooo delicious.  A recipe for the books!
