WFPB Chocolate Chip Cookies

WFPB Chocolate Chip Cookies

Being on such a strict diet means there aren’t very many options for sweet indulgences. These cookies are great to have sitting around, and my husband loves them! || I adapted  @susanffvk’s Banana-Maple Oatmeal Cookie recipe from her fat free vegan blog blog.fatfreevegan.com . I added nutmeg in addition to the cinnamon for flavoring and used chocolate chips in place of raisins in Susan’s original recipe.  Tip: Make sure you flatten the cookies before putting them in the oven because they won’t change shape during baking.  I love using the silicon mats I purchased at Costco in place of parchment paper.  These cookies can easily double as a quick breakfast when you are on the run, or a healthy exercise snack at the gym.
