47 Calorie Cookies

Most of you that read my blog often have noticed I have not been posting alot about sweets anymore. That's because I have been trying really hard to cut back in that department.

Unfortunately, It has not been that successful for me.
My goal weight is to be 125 lbs.
For 4 weeks, I tracked my calories using a " myfitnesspal " app on my I phone.
I entered my weight which was 161 lbs (I don't mind telling it). I wanted to loose at least 15 lbs so it gave me a 1200 calorie a day goal. I would like to loose more than 15 lbs but I was just taking it easy. I remember the days until I was 30, I couldn't get my weight over 110 lbs.
Anyways, In four weeks I lost only ONE lbs. That's all! Needless to say, I gave up the app.
I have a general idea now of how many calories are in most foods and plan to continue eating less and exercising more. I gave up my zumba dance classes back in October due to the expenses and time so I got the Zumba for Wii and I love it. Its not the same as a live class, but it is a good workout, and I can do it on my own time.

Enough about the my diet and on to the cookies!

"Banana Oatmeal Cookies"

Theses little cookies are healthy and do not taste all that bad. I just didn't really like the texture. They were sweet enough though. They make great snacks without feeling like you ruined your diet. And they contain no artifical flavoring or dairy products, therefore they are perfect for your health.

Banana Oat Meal Cookies
1 6oz jar of baby food bananas-140 cal
1 cup of Quick oats- 300 cal
2 Tbs honey- 120 cal
1/2 tsp Cinnamon -0

Mix all the ingredients together. spoon onto a cookie sheet and bake 350 degree for 15 minutes.
Makes 12 cookies = 47 calories each
(53 cal each if using ripe bananas which would prabably taste better).

I think I will make these again but add some raisins or fruit.

  1. I think I'll try these! I'm on a quest to lose a few lbs.myself, and any healthy treats are appreciated! ;) Thanks for sharing!

  2. You mentioned 46 calories are in the cookie, but your title says 47 calories. I'm really concerned about that extra calorie! lol Thanks for leaving a comment on my garland chick. I have a fondness for him (he's kinda funky & needs extra love) and my favorite part is his feet. Check out his cute feet!



  3. Thanks Noreen for pointing that out to me. I had to fix it. It would have drove me crazy knowing this mistake. The cookies are actually 46.6 Calories and that probably where I messed up. Thanks for visiting!!

  4. Hi Lisa!
    Oh, the fun you will have tinkering with these cookies! :)
    Thanks for sharing your blog post with me, so glad you were inspired to come up with your own banana oatmeal cookie.

    I've wandered around, you have a lovely blog!
