Slim Elvis?

Posted on August 26, 2017. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Guys it’s been so long and I’m sorry for that! July flew by and pretty much so did August, I ended up having to request days off just so I could have some time to myself. As of yesterday, I actually don’t have a morning shift till next Friday. It’s almost like a vacation!

Anyway, I had some bananas that were turning (I’ve had issues with getting bananas lately, they’ll either last a while or go bad really quickly) and I wanted to make something healthy ish with them. I googled some recipes, but couldn’t really find anything I liked. There was a recipe that looked ok, but it was kind of boring. I ended up using it as a framework to make something a little less boring.

The result was kind of weird, since there’s no leavening agents they don’t really spread out like normal cookies, they kind of have the texture of more like a dense cake than a cookie. That being said, they’re pretty tasty still. Not too sweet, with a great banana flavor.

I’m calling them slim Elvis cookies because of the ingredients. They actually don’t take that long to make, are vegan (unless you don’t eat honey) and even have some protein.

Slim Elvis Cookies

Here’s what to get from the store:

Bananas (but, like wait a week)
Natural Peanut Butter
Rolled Oats
Whole Wheat Flour

Slim Elvis Cookies

4 over ripe bananas
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
6 tbsp peanut butter
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oats
1 tbsp honey

  1. In a bowl, smash the bananas, vanilla and peanut butter until combined.
  2. Add the flour, oats and honey, mixing to combine.
  3. With floured hands, roll the dough into balls, then smash them down with a fork.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.

I have to say, even with as much as I’ve been working, I’ve still had time to exercise and eat well. Sure, I’m exhausted but I feel pretty great still.
