sweet snack swaps

i am a snacker.

and while i know that’s not a personality trait, it’s definitely one of the things that pops into my mind when i think about my favourite things!

and lately, it’s been cookies.

but i’m very, very, very picky when it comes to them & i’ve spent quite a bit of time in the kitchen trying different ‘healthier’ recipes that won’t give me diabetes or fatty liver.

and today i give you my spin on some of the best recipes i’ve found for healthier desserts – two cookie & one milkshake recipe – because it’s summertime & i love a sweet cold treat:

oatmeal cookies:

2 ripe mashed bananas 
1 & 1/2 cups quick oats
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or chopped nuts

mix & bake at 350 for 15 minutes

coconut cookies:

2 ripe mashed bananas
2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut

mix & bake at 350 for 20 minutes 

drizzle melted dark chocolate on top

oreo milkshake:

1 frozen banana
1 cup milk (i use unsweetened almond milk)
2-3 oreos (or chips ahoy or any other cookie!)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

blend all together in your blender 

i absolutely love these treats & i don’t feel bad after eating them (& i have one of them every day)!

plus, they have very few ingredients & are super easy to make – which is always a bonus in my book.

give these a try & let me know what you think or leave your own ‘healthy alternative’ dessert idea in the comments below!

    1. they did take some getting used to – they’re not as ‘nice’ as homemade ones with flour, eggs & sugar – but they definitely do the trick when i want to eat better 😉

    1. i’m so happy to hear you liked them 🙂 & i’m glad to hear i’m not the only one who hates being in the kitchen (unless it’s to eat haha!)
