Chocolate Chunk Banana Nut Cookies Recipe are they perfect way to use up those overripe bananas! YUMMY. They taste amazing and all things considered they’re loaded with good for you ingredients like bananas, applesauce, oats, walnuts, and semi-sweet chocolate. You can replace the sugars with Truvia Baking Blend and Brown Sugar Baking Blends or even honey would work to cut down the sugars a bit if you’d like to. I replaced half the butter with applesauce, which works well in most baking recipes.
Chocolate Chunk Banana Nut Cookies are not exactly a “healthy” recipe but more of a “skinnied” recipe!
Do. Not. Fear.

If you love Banana Nut Bread then you’ll fall completely in love with these little guys… they’re SO good. They freeze really well to so if you have some left hanging around throw them in a ziptop freezer baggie for a ready-to-eat, sweet treat when that sweet tooth gets to calling!
If you’re not a nut person then go ahead and omit them or trade the walnuts for a different variety too. I like to Trader Joes brand of semi-ssweet chocolate chunks- they melt in your mouth and have a pretty high percentage of cocoa in them too- the more antioxidants, the better.

Nichole’s Fitness Tips…
After all these weeks of fantastic recipes provided by Ruthie I wanted to talk about food, more specifically why food is the best way to get the nutrients your body needs. I realize that you can find a pill or some sort of “amazing” juice to get anything and everything your body could need, but is that ideal? NO! This is a discussion I get into a lot with my clients. I am often asked what supplements I take and what I would recommend. The looks I get when I explain that I don’t take anything are priceless. The reality is our bodies know how to use food better than it knows how to use a pill. And we get a lot more from food than we do supplements. For example, there are hundreds of nutrients in an apple along with fiber and lots of essentials, way more than than the just the biggies. Part of the job of all the smaller nutrients in that apple is to work WITH the bigger nutrients, to assure that we are getting the full power of the bigger nutrients.
