Cooking Light Cookies

This month’s Cooking Light magazine had this SDG (so darn good – if you didn’t read my earlier post today) recipe in it for Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies.  It’s easy and not too bad with the calories so I thought I’d give it a try.  The cookies are moist and tasty with just the right of banana and chocolate flavor.  I added some raisins to the mix too.  What a treat!  Here’s a picture of them.IMG_1532

The reason I said I had a surprise in my earlier post was because this probably was a surprise to my kids.  I NEVER baked when they were growing up and never made cookies.  The closest we ever came to having homemade cookies were the ones you break apart and bake.  So I even surprised myself that I can make cookies!  And they really are good and no artificial stuff – all natural ingredients and still low fat and calories – Yay!

Since we had a big lunch and I went to Open Mike Night (it’s always fun to see new talent come along) I had a snackie supper – you know – one that’s just kind of this and that of snack type food which I just call a snackie supper. 


Some pretzels, wheat thins, sunchips, Sabra hummus (the best!), and some yogurt french onion dip from Kroger.  I also had some of the faux fried squash from lunch that I heated up.


After supper I went back to the pool and did some water aerobics. Such a SDG day!

  3. Jennifer shared some of those cookies with me yesterday when we went to the movies. They were so, so, soooo good! You know how picky I am and seriously, I loved them. If she hadn’t told me that they were healthy, I would never have guessed! You should definitely bake more often.
