Healthy Banana Cookies (flourless & eggless!) made using Truvia. These cookies are so soft, moist and super healthy! A great post-workout snack or healthy dessert option. (This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Truvía®. The opinions and text are all mine.)
Guess what today is? It’s my Birthday! I’m finally 21!
Ha. I wish I was just turning 21! I’m slightly older than that now… 😉
I remember wanting to be older than 21 when I was 21. Is that normal? I think I was a rare case at that age. I was pregnant with my second baby when I was 21, guys! I had my oldest at 18 years old so I was really ahead of the motherhood game.
I just remember thinking that I wished people would stop asking me if I was the babysitter/nanny instead of the mom and thinking how I’d love it when I was in my thirties, and people would finally stop asking me that.
Well, now I’m in my thirties.
I’d be glad to go back to those people who thought I was the nanny when I was in my 20’s and eat that compliment right up!
Okay, enough whining about getting older.
Birthdays are fun, right? Let me tell you what my sweet husband did for me today: he drove me over to the mall. 🙂
Yep. Shopping. My husband HATES shopping, so just the fact that he was willing to go to the mall? With me? Pure awesome.
But he took it a step further. He took me to Nordstrom (my most favorite store in the whole mall). We meet with this fashion expert aka a personal shopper. And then I get a bunch of fabulous clothes and bras and shoes!
Yeah. I had a total Pretty Woman experience. It was ah-mazing!!!!
Basically, my dream come true! It was such a great day. And what way to make a great day even better? Cookies.
Healthy Banana Cookies, to be exact. These cookies are great if you’re still sticking to those New Year’s resolutions, and want a healthy dessert option. They’re flourless and eggless, which is awesome and use Truvia in place of sugar.
They’re soft in the middle with a chewy exterior. I’m a huge craisin fan so I naturally added them to these. They add a tart, chewy component to the cookies, but you can sub raisins or leave them out altogether.
These are a great (healthy) way to end a great Birthday. Who needs a cake?!
Do you love Truvia as much as I do?
