Guest Post: Nikki from Life After Swimming

Hello from the beach! Here is one of my first guest posts, and it comes from Nikki at lifeafterswimming. Not only is Nikki teaching, coaching, and planning a wedding, she also has time to cook! Luckily she is sharing a great recipe with us! And only three ingredients, you can’t beat that!


Hey everyone! Thanks to Kristen, I’m here with a guest post for ya! I hope she’s having a great time, and I hope she’s taking a nice break from technology, too! A little break is good for the soul!

I’m here today to introduce you to my favorite cookie recipe as of late.  It’s probably the simplest recipe in the world, but it makes for a filling, low calorie treat!  And another plus is that it can be easily adapted to include a multitude of yummy tastes!  I’ve already posted it on my blog, but I wanted to share it with the rest of Kristen’s readers because this recipe is honestly the simplest recipe that is also satisfying!

Three ingredients is all it takes for a healthy, filling, delicious dessert.  A bonus: each cookie is roughly 50 calories!

Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies

  • 1 cup oats

  • 2 ripe bananas

  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix all ingredients together well, spoon onto a greased baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes.  The end.  Easy as pie (or cookies in this case…). I got 12 nice-sized cookies out of it.

The nice thing is that these can be modified simply.  You can switch out the chocolate chips for raisins, dried fruit, nuts, etc.  Or you can add a little bit of nut butter for a smoother taste!

Seriously, I encourage you to try these! They don’t really taste like a health cookies, and they are totally perfect for a little sweet tooth craving!

Thanks, again, to Kristen! Hope you enjoy the recipe! 🙂
