20140120-221159.jpg

Tonight was all about getting yummy food in my belly! You know those days where you can’t stop thinking about the same food until you finally get to make it? That was me today. I made a super zesty Shrimp and White Bean Salad with Creamy Lemon Dill Dressing for dinner. That was fantastic! I’ll share that recipe soon ūüėČ

But for dessert…I had to¬†stay¬†with the healthy theme of dinner, and I had already promised my boys cookies. But I didn’t have much time. And I wanted a sweet contrast to my tangy dinner, without all the guilt of sugar. I had a ripe banana lying on the counter and could only think how awesome it would be to find a microwave banana cookie recipe.

Yep, I’m one of those moms that gives her kids¬†cookies right before bed…yea, they are a bit spoiled. I’ve even been known to sneak into their rooms after I’ve put them to bed, with a piece of freshly baked brownies and given them a bite. Oh I know the Tooth Fairy is frowning on me right now!

So I found a recipe on Pinterest¬†for some quick Oatmeal Cookies made with just¬†2 ingredients-Banana and Oatmeal! So I added Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chips. I mean, we have to go all out right!?!¬†And I only added 30 seconds to my¬†prep time ūüėČ
