I Want Something Good

I'm having one of those days where I want something.  Something good.  You know what I'm talking about.  It's one of those days where you stand in the pantry and look for something to appeal to you.  You hope that somehow something put itself in the pantry that you didn't know was there.  Why do I do that?  I'm the one who buys the groceries.  I would know if something really good was in there.  Then you go the refrigerator and do the same thing all over again.  *SIGH*  I guess I'll have to make something without over doing the calories.  I won't put the chocolate chips in my cookies because I don't have any.  Chocolate chips would make them even better if I did though!

Healthy Banana Cookies

3 over ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup apple sauce
2 cups oats

1 tsp cinnamon  or 2 drops doTERRA cinnamon essential oil

Mash bananas and applesauce together.  Mix remaining ingredients and drop by the spoonful onto a cookie sheet.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake for 18-20 minutes.
