This recipe has been in the family for over 15 years. It’s simple, healthy, and makes a great treat. My son loves them so much, that we caught him using his stool in the kitchen at 4 am, to eat as many as he could before anyone woke up!! But you know what, better these than a bag of Mr. Christie’s. I can assure you, there is a lot less sugar.
Oats, bananas, cinnamon, and few sprinkled chocolate chips make up these delicious gluten-free cookies, which are also ideal for snack time after school or on the go.
OATS ARE AWESOME!
Eat one cup of oats and you’ll rack up nearly 70% of your daily needs for manganese, a mineral that helps enzymes in bone formation. You’ll also get good helpings of vitamin B1 and magnesium. (source)
