OMG Healthy Cookies & A Recipe to Rectify a Mistake

OMG Healthy Cookies & A Recipe to Rectify a Mistake


I made a mistake last week and let people down because I forgot to show up to a commitment I’d made. I felt awful. My stomach felt like a ball of rocks, my heart sank. I was totally deflated; I’d let so many people down. After sulking for a day, here’s what I remembered to be true, what I did to rectify the mistake, and what you can do to.



  1. I am not perfect
  2. I am going to fail or make a mistake sometimes
  3. Failing is a chance for gained wisdom
  4. Put a system in place that will prevent the mistake from happening again
  5. Forgive yourself
  6. Mend the situation as best as you can by apologizing sincerely and doing something to show you really care…..

THUS…..THE OMG I’M SORRRY HEALTHY COOKIES!  I made these cookies with a sorry note attached and gave them to the people I’d let down. You can use this recipe should the need arise for you, but…

Whether you need to say you’re sorry or not, these cookies stand alone in their goodness!

OMG COOKIE RECIPE – A delicious, guilt-free healthy cookie

3 large, ripe bananas, well mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup coconut oil, barely warm – so it isn’t solid
2 cups rolled oats
2/3 cup almond meal (best price I found was at Trader Joes)
1/3 cup coconut, finely shredded & unsweetened
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder (check for non aluminum- also Trader Joes)
6 – 7 ounces 70% dark chocolate bar chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, rack on the top third of the oven. In a large bowl combine the bananas, vanilla extract, and coconut oil. Set aside. In another bowl whisk together the oats, almond meal, shredded coconut, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until combined. Fold in the chopped chocolate. The dough is a bit looser than a standard cookie dough, don’t worry about it. Drop dollops of the dough, each about 2 teaspoons in size, an inch apart, onto a parchment (or Silpat) lined baking sheet. Bake for 12 – 14 minutes. Check the bottom to see that they’re a nice golden brown underneath.

Makes about 3 dozen bite-sized cookies. Be prepared to make a 2nd batch. These are so good, you’re gonna wish you had more to go around!
