Healthy Banana Cake Batter Cookies (and a Starbucks Giveaway)
Has anyone seen the new special edition “cookie dough” Oreo Cookies in the grocery store? Holy yum.
I saw them pop up on my Instagram feed a few days ago and purposely avoided going anywhere near the cookie isle while shopping. I am doing so well on my diet and I think those might trigger a sugar relapse.
I rewarded myself by making these instead.
I can’t believe how easy they were (only three basic ingredients). Not to mention that they really do taste like cake batter!
The bananas make them soft and a bit gooey in the center, the sprinkles make them fun, and the dash of “Vanilla Butter & Nut” (or pound cake) flavoring is exactly like cake batter.
My husband loved them but I have to be honest…. I ate most of them before he had a chance. But based on the ingredients that means I only had a few bananas and some oats!!!
Cake batter cookies while sipping on my morning coffee … not a bad way to start off Sunday.
Starbucks and I would like to wish you a Happy Valentines Day! Leave me a comment with your email address (so I can reach you if you win) and how you like to spend your Sunday mornings those who are special to you to you and the winner will receive a special Valentines Day gift box from Starbucks.

Healthy Banana Cake Batter Cookies (Makes about 18-24 cookies)
3 large old bananas
1 cup of oats (regular old fashion oats)
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (optional, replace with more oats if you don’t like coconut)
1/2 tablespoon Imitation Vanilla Butter & Nut Flavor (They should carry this in the baking isle of most large grocery stores, I got it at Wegmans)
A few dashes of rainbow sprinkles
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. Add your bananas to a large bowl. Slice them up a bit. Add your oats and coconut and mash them all together until semi smooth. Mix in your tablespoon of cake batter flavor and sprinkles.
