Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

Last night I had a craving for oatmeal raisin cookies. After I pained through a really tough HIIT workout I didn’t want to blow it by eating cookies. I found a healthier version to your typical oatmeal cookies that just uses ripe bananas and oats. To make them even better I mixed in raisins, walnuts, vanilla extract, a pinch of salt, and a drizzle of honey. I just had one for breakfast and they taste like an oatmeal cookie mixed with banana bread! Delicious any time of the day!
