Today I had cookies for breakfast. (What?! I thought you were trying to be healthy?) Well, I am and these are! They’re “cookies” made from just bananas and oats - so simple! No sugar, no flour, no eggs… thank you to The Burlap Bag for creating these! I love having these in the kitchen because I eat them for breakfast or as a snack and I don’t feel guilty for eating five. (That’s about half a banana and a third-ish cup of oats? Maybe? You get the point.)
This morning I was racing against the clock and rushed making these so I literally only used 2 ingredients. But before I’ve added chocolate chips and have since then started a list of different cookie combos I want to make. What is/are your favorite kind(s) of cookies? I want to add some of your favorites to my list. :)
Make sure your bananas are ripe! // The first time I made these I was so anxious to try this recipe but my bananas weren’t ready so it tasted a bit off.
You may need to add more oats. // This depends on the length of your bananas so adjust accordingly if the consistency seems too wet.
Add vanilla extract. // If the taste is too plain for you, vanilla extract can help add more flavor.
My best friend, my little brother, and my physical trainer all in one.

Convo With Mom About My Work Out
- Mom: Son, you need to stop working out.
- Me: What? Why? I'm slowly reaching my goals. I got 20 to 30 lbs left to go.
- Mom: But your legs...(Looks at my legs)
- Me: What about them? (Look at my own legs)
- Mom: They're getting veiny.
- Me: So?
- Mom: It's like your vein is going to rupture. It's like painting a target and letting someone who wants to hurt you know where to cut you with a knife.
- Me: Then hopefully my legs are strong enough to help me run away quickly before all that!
- Mom: ...
- Me: -____-
That awesome moment when you fit in a pair of jeans you had never fit before.
Back in May, I had a size 36 waist. My best friend, Michael, had me work out like crazy by providing me with a fitness and diet plan when I joined 24 Hour Fitness. Around July, he gave me a pair of his old size 32 jeans as a symbol of motivation. He said that by September, I should be able to fit it. Challenge accepted.
While I still have awhile to go with my fitness goals, today, I actually fit Michael’s old pair of jeans! I feel accomplished. I still have about 30 pounds to lose before I fully accomplish my goals.
