How To Make Skinny Chunky Monkey Cookies

First you mash up some really ripe bananas in a large bowl. Once that’s done, it’s time to add the rest of the ingredients. Stir all of this together until the ingredients are fully blended. See how EASY this is?

Bananas, oats, cocoa, peanut butter, applesauce & vanilla are mixed together.

This is what the cookie batter will look like after mixing it up. Once it’s fully mixed, let the batter “rest” for for about 15 minutes. Preheat your oven to 350°F while the cookie batter is “resting”.

Time To Bake These Cookies!

By now your oven should be preheated to 350°F . Drop the batter by Tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet, leaving space between each dollop. Bake the skinny chunky monkey cookies for about 10-12 minutes.

Ready To Serve/Eat The Cookies

Once the cookies are finished baking, remove the cookie sheet from the oven. Let the cookies sit for a minute, and then transfer them with a spatula to a wire rack to finish cooling. Grab a cookie after it has completely cooled (they taste best at room temp!), and enjoy!
