Healthy Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

This one is REALLY good my friends :-)  AND...... I do not feel in the least bit guilty having two (3, 4 maybe 5) of these for breakfast. Ha!  You can easily make these gluten and sugar free if you want.

The SECRET to making these (and lots of other) healthy cookies is make sure and use REALLY ripe bananas.  Regular yellow bananas just won't do the trick.....they have to be over ripe and soft! I always keep a zip lock bag of peeled, over ripe bananas in my freezer.

Makes 18 cookies
2 RIPE bananas
4 Tbsp NuNaturals Cocoa Syrup (or the mint syrup if you adventurous!)
(or 3 tbsp unsweetened Cocoa Powder sweetened with 3 tsp NuNaturals Stevia )
3 Tbsp egg whites
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c almonds ground to an almond flour
2 cups oatmeal divided (1/2 c turned to oat flour)
6 scoops (or 90 grams total) protein powder (regular, vanilla or chocolate is fine)
1/2 tsp baking powder
Dash of salt
1/2 c chocolate chips 
*you can use healthy sugar free chocolate chips and gluten free oatmeal for health issues if you want!

First mix wet ingredients together.  In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients together.  Combine the wet with the dry and mix well. (It's best to add chocolate chips at the very end, lightly stirring them in)  Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. (slightly undercooked is WAY better than overcooked for these cookies)
