Skinny Monkey Cookies

Submitted by: KELLIKIN86

Introduction

I know it’s not often you see chocolate, bananas, and peanut butter in a healthy recipe, but this lightened-up version of a “chunky monkey” is both healthy and tasty! I tend to get a sweet tooth in the afternoons at work, and these cookies have saved me from grabbing chocolate from a co-worker’s candy dish on more than one occasion. At just 47 calories per cookie, you really can’t go wrong!
