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
-2 ripe bananas (.50 cents)
-1 cup of quick oats (.25 cents)
-1/4 cup of chocolate chips (.25 cents)
1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2. Combine banana and oats in the bowl thoroughly and add chocolate chips over time
3. Distribute to sprayed cookie sheet
4. Bake for 15 minutes for deliciousness
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!
