Got Oatmeal

Remember my oatmeal recipe from yesterday? My good friend/"pen pal" Lauren, who has two cute boys and is striving to create a healthy life style for her family too put some of the ingredients to good use and created a cookie recipe. I'm excited to try them.  Here is what she writes:

You will need:
- Two ripe bananas   – 1 cup rolled oats   – 1/4 cup flaxseed  - 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
Mush all the ingredients together and scoop out onto lightly greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
Yes, I cheated a little here and added chocolate chips but these would be good without them.  You could also add cinnamon and raisins for more of an oatmeal cookie flavoring.
My husband was in love with these.   He described them as “Cliff bars but so much better” (and WAY better for you!).  These were incredibly simple to make, and an awesome breakfast on the go!  Looking forward to discovering more simple solutions to eating cleaner and healthier!
