Interception Cookie

A fun twist on your 3 Ingredient Cookie!

2 ripe bananas

1 scoop of Perfect Fit Protein

1 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut

1/2 cup of carob chips

pinch of sea salt

1 Tbsp of coconut oil

Preheat oven to 350° Mix peeled bananas, oats, coconut oils and salt in blender until smooth. Add coconut and carob chips to the mixture – you can leave it in the blender to keep dirty dishes to a minimum – and mix with spoon. Use a spoon to drop the dough on your cookie sheet ~ be sure to coat it with non-stick cooking spray ~ and lightly press down to flatten. This helps it bake better! Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown!

Whether you plan on heading to a party this weekend, or are hosting your own, these are all great dishes to bring with you, or enjoy throughout the year!
