I am an addict – a junk food addict.  Unrefined, processed white flour? Check! White sugar?  Check, check! Brown sugar? Hell yeah! I love it all and so does my family.  I have always been skeptical of “healthy” alternatives to baked goods which usually taste like cardboard with some honey mixed in (and those are the tasty ones), but I was going through Bethenny Frankel’s Naturally Thin book and came across a chocolate chip cookie that is nothing short of FABULOUS!  Seriously, these cookies, which are both low cal, low fat, gluten free actually taste good.  Just take a peek at the finished product….

Here is how you do it:

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups oat flour
3/4 cup oats
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. raw sugar (I used regular granulated white sugar, because that is all I had)
1/3 c. chocolate chips
1 tsp. canola oil
1/3 c. soy milk (I used 1% milk because that is all I had)
1/2 c. banana puree (from 1 medium sized ripe banana)
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Farenheit. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. Combine all wet ingredients in a separate bowl.  Mix the dry and wet ingredients together, until combined.

2. Use a medium size ice cream scooop or a large spoon to scoop batter onto a cookie sheet covered with wax paper or a lightly greased cookie sheet.  Bake for 12 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through the cooking, or bake until the edges of the cookies are light brown.

I got this recipe from Bethenny Frankel’s book Naturally Thin.  I hope you enjoy the cookies!
