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

Directions

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!

We of course love this on the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan… portobello mushrooms as buns!! :) So much more flavor and texture!!!!
