Skinny monkey cookies

Thank goodness these are only1 weight watchers point each (according to my recipe builder), because I can not stop eating them.  Even the triplets loved them and they are totally healthy! They are not the prettiest cookies out there but they are sure yummy.

The recipe calls for three mushed up bananas and my triplets totally loved being able to help with this.  Lastly, no eggs in this, so batter tasting is totally acceptable and encouraged.

Here is what you need-

  • 3 bananas - the riper the better
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter - i used natural
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce 
  • 3 packets of splenda
  • Dash of cinnamon 


Preheat oven to 350°F.  Have your little helpers mash the bananas.  No toss in all remaining ingredient with the bananas in a large bowl. Then drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. These don't really spread as they bake, so you can make them into balls or flatten them out. Bake  for 10-12 minutes.


  1. Thanks for the review ... have seen them floating around on Pinterest but didn't pin because the pic looks disgusting! Will have to try them soon (I think I actually have all the ingredients in the house!).

  2. They are chewy. Not that good.....
