Cool Cooking Substitutes That Are Healthy For You

Today I was watching Dr. Oz and he was sharing some substitutes for items like Mayo & sugar.  Anytime I can find something that is good for us and tasty, I'm all for it.  So, I found this recipe and plan to try it on the teenagers and hubby soon.

Things shared on the show were banana puree substituting 1/2 the sugar in recipes.  Silkening Tofu in place of cream and a few others, check them out by clicking HERE to visit Dr. Oz's website today.

If you try, please post your feedback and share your results.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

2 ripe bananas
1/3 cup peanut butter
2 tbsp 2% milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp agave nectar
1 large egg
2 1/2 cups quick-cooking or rolled oats
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
Dash ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350°F. Make banana puree by mashing the bananas with a fork until smooth. Whisk in the peanut butter, milk, vanilla, agave, and egg. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until well combined.  

Drop dough onto a cookie sheet that has been sprayed or lined with parchment paper. Bake 13-16 minutes or until pale golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes.
