Don't pitch out those overripe bananas, make some cookies! When freshly baked, these cookies are crispy on the outside and gummy on the inside. When stored in a container, they lose some of the crispness but are still yummy. They are gluten free, healthy, low in sugar and have no added fat. I figured that each cookie has approximately 52 calories.
Total Time: less than an hour
Yield: 9 two inch cookies
Source: I have seen several versions of this type cookie using oatmeal. I decided to try Rice Chex and found that it has a different taste and different texture.
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 cup crushed Rice Chex
- 1/3 cup raisins
- Preheat oven 350 degrees F. I used my toaster oven.
- Place banana on a plate and mash it with a fork until mushy.
- Place Rice Chex in a bowl and crush them with your hands. It takes almost 2 cups to make 1 cup of crushed.
- Cut each raisin in half (optional).
- Stir Rice Chex, banana and raisins in a medium mixing bowl until mixed well.
- Place foil on a small baking sheet and spray it with Pam.
- Make 9 balls and place them on the foil.
- Press each ball down until it is cookie shaped.
- Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees F or until browned.
- Remove from pan and cool on a rack.
