organic cornmeal pancake mix oatmeal flaxseed chocolate banana POWER cookies.

I made cookies today.

Recipe I found from HERE.

It was the first link on google when I searched for Oatmeal Cookies.

I started going through our cupboard, to find what the recipe needs.  First thing I notice is how much butter this thing needs.  1cup, that made me gag.

So I didn't use butter. Instead of  1 cup of butter, I used 6 oz of plain greek yogurt.

Next thing is I can't find flour.  Idiot, we have flour some where, but this Organic Cornmeal Pancake mix is right in front of me.  2 cups of mix goes into the bowl.

Luckily everything else is in the cupboard.   It's really dry.  I add some whole milk, makes it perfect. 

I look into the bowl, something is missing, it's all brown and plain looking. I add in chocolate chips.  I add flaxseed. 

 I stir it all up and taste it.   Amazing, so amazing that I may eat it all before I even put it in the oven.  I quickly chop up a banana into a bunch of tiny pieces.  I add the pieces.  There, now it's healthy, I won't be able to eat all that in one setting.

Now I chill the cookie dough.

Takes 1 hour.

Scoop out the dough, put them on a pan, cook them for 10 minutes.  

See what I did there?  Totally just avoided doing my taxes...
