Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are one of my faves, and one of Susan Saradon’s too. The combines heart-healthy rolled oats and walnuts with potassium-packed bananas, to make a delectable, yet healthy dessert. You can even make this recipe vegan-friendly by using soy milk and vegan chocolate chips. Enjoy these cookies with a tall glass of milk (or soy milk) for less than 200 calories.
