Healthy Snacks

Thanks to pinterest, I have found several healthy snack recipes for us all to enjoy. Today we made monkey cookies. The best part of these cookies is that they contain no sugar but the cocoa still allows you to think you are eating a chocolatey treat.


















Monkey Cookies


Jimmie @


  • 3 bananas
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Dash of cinnamon (optional)


Preheat oven to 350°F. Mash bananas in a large bowl, then stir in remaining ingredients. Let batter stand for approximately 20 minutes, then drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon if desired. Bake 10-12 minutes.
