Low Calorie Cookies

Susan Feliciano


I have heard both good things and disappointment about these cookies - got this recipe from a friend and will try them as soon as my current bananas get softer.
These cookies are reported to have about 35 calories each without the optional ingredients.
NOT the world's best cookie. Definitely for those who can't have regular cookies. They taste a little like banana muffins.

    These cookies taste like banana muffins. So don't expect a real cookie taste. But not bad, considering.
