I was so happy the day I figured out my stomach issues were due to lactose intolerance. It was such a relief to know the cause and be able to do something about it! I do still eat full fat dairy product on occasion (ice cream, cheesecake, queso, etc...) Full fat dairy doesn't bother me as much as low fat or fat free, but I always use almondmilk in my cereal and make substitutions when possible when I bake or cook.
Have you made the switch to Silk Almondmilk yet?
Switching to Silk is an easy and delicious way to start adding more plants to your diet. And like the plants Silk is made from, when your body gets everything it needs to be healthy, it blooms! Plus at only 40 calories per serving (in the Silk Almondmilk Light) and 50% more calcium than milk, I love that Silk keeps me on track, feel more energized and helps me "bloom".
To make these cookies, all you need is ripe bananas, quick cooking oats and Silk Almondmilk. Plus your choice of add-ins. This time, I went with craisins, white chocolate chips and a bit of coconut. (Last time I made these, I used chocolate chips and walnuts...)
Banana and Oats Healthy Cookie
- 4 ripe Bananas
- 2 cups of quick oats
- 1/4 cup of Almond Milk (or regular milk if that is all you have.)
- Add-ins of your choice ( used 1/3 cup of white chocolate chips, Craisins and 1/4 cup of shredded coconut)
- Mash the 4 bananas and mix in the quick oats and almondmilk. Stir everything together and add in your optional mix-ins.
- Spoon Cookie dough onto a very well greased cookie sheet. (I just used my pampered chef scoop and flattened the tops of the cookies out just a bit since they will not spread and I wanted them to cook evenly.)
- Cook at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes or until the cookies look done.
