Clean Eating Banana Oatmeal Cookies

I have a SUPER SWEET TOOTH and love that the 21-Day Fix allows be some sweets!!   It's all about balance, right?

The program's nutrition guide comes with tons of great recipes that I have slowly been trying out (I'm not a baker by any means!).  This week I decided to make the "Banana Oatmeal Cookies" for my students who are working so hard taking the state exam, MCAS.  I figured these would be a perfect treat because they are absolutely sugar to jitter them up!!

Although my kiddos didn't think they were "cookies," they did love them!

Here's the recipe, which makes 8 servings (2 cookies per serving).  For you guys and gals on the 21-Day Fix, 2 cookies is 1 yellow container.
