Banana Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are so good and so easy! I'm talking five ingredient easy. They are a healthy alternative to chocolate chip cookies and they taste really good! 

Banana Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here's what you'll need:

2 bananas, slightly over ripe

1 cup oats (I used old fashioned oats but you could probably use quick oats too)

1/4-1/2 cup chocolate chips

1 tsp. vanilla

sprinkle of cinnamon



Mash up the bananas in a bowl with a fork. Add the oats and combine. Add in the vanilla and cinnamon and then mix in the chocolate chips. 

Scoop onto a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F. for about 15 minutes or until the edges start to brown. 

Remove and place on drying rack and enjoy! 

I keep these in the fridge to stay fresh.

Pork Tacos with Pineapple Salsa

I love trying new recipes and using leftover food from the night before. I made a pork roast in the crockpot the other night with some onions and apples and it was delicious!  It was so tender and juicy. Giant Eagle had a sale buy one get one free for the roasts so I had to get two! We had a decent amount left over from the crockpot meal so I wanted to use it the next night. My mom gave me the idea to make pork tacos and they were delicious and so easy!


The meat was already done so the hard part was over. I made the pineapple salsa, and added some cilantro to Johns (I don't like cilantro, I think it tastes like soap :p), and squeezed some lime juice on top! So easy and so delicious! 

Here is the recipe:


Pulled pork (mine was leftover from the roast in the crockpot)

Salt to taste

Pineapple salsa

-fresh pineapple diced up (about 1/4 cup)

-half of a sweet onion diced

-drizzle of olive oil

-about 1/4 cup corn kernels

-squeeze of lime juice

-pinch of salt

Corn or flour tortillas (I used corn)

Squeeze of lime juice

Sprinkle of cilantro

*Could add avocado, cheese, or sour cream


These tacos were so good, I will definitely be making them again soon!
