We’re rounding out of week of international cuisine with a stop back here at home in the US. This banana cookie is a really wonderful snack. I’m always game for recipes that use up bananas, since we typically have one or two that need to be used since they’re over ripe. These cookies are so simple, just toss everything in the bowl and mix. They’re also really delicious. I like to use them as a snack after my walk with my dog. You can use old fashioned oats or quick oats, but I typically use half and half. It gives me the texture of old fashioned oats but the quick oats absorb the moisture better and hold the cookie together. With the raisins and chocolate chips, the whole family will love these cookies.
These delicious cookies are gluten and dairy free, but don’t think they’re going to end up tough, grainy and just downright strange. They are fluffy and tender. Almond butter adds a nutty flavor, but without being too overpowering. These cookies are perfect with the chocolate chips, but if you’re not a fan of chocolate, use chopped pecans or walnuts (the points are the same). You can use any gluten free flour blend for the 1 cup of flour. If you can’t have the xanthan gum, use 3 tablespoons of psyllium husk instead. If you don’t need to make gluten free cookies, just use 3 1/4 cups regular wheat flour (the points don’t change for this substitution). A word of warning – the cookies are best fresh out of the oven and can be a little bit addictive.
Since I cannot stop fantasizing about cookies lately, I decided to try out this recipe for Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies, and I am SO glad I did! The original version uses regular, chunky peanut butter, but I decided to use my favorite peanut butter substitute – Better’n Peanut Butter, so that I could eat more cookies for less Points. It worked out really well, and the end result was a deliciously sweet and satisfying treat that will for sure be on my tray of Chrismukkah Cookies this year! I use the term Chrismukkah because I celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah, which means more presents and yummy food!! Each cookie is just 2 Points +, which isn’t bad considering how rich and flavorful they are. I’m satisfied with eating just two or three of them, and I don’t go overboard. So if you are looking for another great Christmas cookie that won’t blow all your Weight Watchers Points, then this Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe is a must try. I mean, really, does it get any better than peanut butter and chocolate together in a moist and chewy cookie? No, it doesn’t. So get yourself to the kitchen pronto and whip up some of these low calorie Christmas cookies ASAP!
