Introduction

Finally, a yummy guiltless cookie! The whole wheat flour has more nutrients and will keep you full longer, the agave nectar won't spike your blood sugar, and the usual bad fats are replaced by fruit!

Ingredients

    3/4 cup agave nectar
    1 cup applesauce
    2 egg whites
    1 tsp vanilla extract

    2 cups whole wheat flour
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp ground cloves
    1/2 tsp cinnamon

    2 cups oats
    3 ripe bananas, mashed
    1 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large bowl, mix agave, applesauce, egg whites, and vanilla.
3. Stir in flour, baking soda, and spices.
4. Add mashed banana, oats, and chocolate chips.
5. Drop dough onto cookie sheet (covered in parchment paper). Bake 8-10 minutes.

Makes 48 cookies.

Notes: These cookies don't spread out, so much as puff up vertically. Don't let that fool you into thinking they're not cooked though -- if you leave them in the oven too long they won't taste as good (too chewy). Better to take them out too early than too late.

Also, if you're subbing honey or sugar for the agave, you'll need to use 1 cup. In fact, if you have a strong sweet tooth, you may want to use 1 cup of agave anyway (which would add about 5 calories, or a little over one carb, to each cookie).
