Clean Cookies

Hey guys! Now when I say clean cookies I don't mean soap and water cookies PROMISE.

I picked these cookies up from a Pinterest page *Runtastic* and they are actually pretty good. I'm not going to lie and say these are as good as a cookie made with butter and chocolate chips, no I won't. But these are a great little treat for when you are trying to be good, for taking on a hike, to the park or whatever you like to do. They aren't going to give you nasty sugar lagging brain or want to take a nap.

First tip for you is for your old bananas that are brown and NO ONE will eat... throw them in the freezer, not the trash. There are so many things you can do with ripe frozen bananas and these cookies are just one (can you also say clean banana ice cream YUM)

Ok so I'm just going to jump in!

Grab two of your super ripe bananas from that freezer, peel them and throw them into your little mixing bowl!
Snag a fork and mash those bananas up!
Grab one cup of oats and mix those in next.
Toss in two tablespoons of cocao powder (which is less processed then cocoa powder)
From here you can either be finished or you can add a few more items.
I added some flax seed.
Chopped nuts would also be really good.

Preheat your oven to 350 F.
Pull out your cookie sheet and lightly grease it (I used just a little bit of coconut oil)
Place teaspoon size drops on your cookie sheet, these cookies won't grow or melt down so you can place them as close to each other as you need to.

Bake for 7-9 minutes. Cool and enjoy!
