The Healthy Cookie

Okay, so it’s more like baked oatmeal.

In fact, it was actually my breakfast today because I woke up really wanting to eat something hearty. Not to mention delicious. This treat is also my go-to when I want to eat a cookie but the dining hall isn’t serving them. Plus it’s healthy because it has almost no sugar and is packed with good-for-you nutrients like calcium, and potassium.

The inspiration and recipe originally came from Harvard’s Food Literacy Project (http://www.dining.harvard.edu/flp/about.html). However, I made some adjustments like taking out half the brown sugar and adding some organic peanut butter. The result is has the consistency of an extremely thick oatmeal and taste’s like dessert. So spoil yourself next time you’re in the dining hall and make a healthy cookie!

The Healthy Cookie

1/2 banana

1/4 cup oatmeal

1 tablespoon raisins

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1 tablespoon organic peanut butter

1-2 tablespoons original soy milk

 

Mash banana in a microwavable bowl. Add oats, raisins, brown sugar, peanut butter, and milk. Mix well. Microwave for 30-45 seconds for a raw consistency or microwave for 1 minute if you prefer well-cooked.
