Why make low calorie cookies?
If you’ve seen my popular weekly updates on Crumbl Cookies with their calories and macro’s, you’d know that I have a strong affection for cookies.
Which is why making a low calorie, healthy cookie has always been a part of my diet. I love a sweet treat so I don’t feel deprived when I’m trying to lose weight. But, I also know that a cookie that is HYPER palatable, is just going to lead to a binge. Once you taste something great, you just want more of it.
So, while these chewy cookies are GOOD, they aren’t going to drive you to overeat. They are the perfect level of natural sweetness, with just enough satisfaction that you don’t feel deprived.
These healthy, low calorie chocolate, banana, oat cookies are also low in fat!
So, next time you need a healthy snack or treat, try these low cal cookies! It makes six cookies total, so if you like them enough you can’t stop eating, eating all of them is equivalent to my breakfast calories, which would be 420 calories!
The 3 Ingredients for Low Calorie Cookies
These cookies only use three wholesome ingredients:
- The wet ingredients: Banana. Banana is a great source of potassium and fiber. (more on why I love bananas here)
- The Dry Ingredients: Quick or rolled oats plus sugar free chocolate chips. Oats are a great source of fiber, and a really good source of carbohydrates. I eat oatmeal every morning! (see my meal plans here) These cookies can be considered gluten free if you purchase your oats from a gluten free facility. (check out my viral apple baked oats here)
And that’s it! Mixing the oats with a mashed banana is all the healthy ingredients you need for the base of the cookie. Then, I just top mine with some sugar free chocolate chips, and bake!
