Five Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies

Still in the hunt  to find that perfect cookie!  It doesn't exist in my kitchen, but I found a recipe to tweak which has no added sugars!  And it tastes good!  Hooray.  The recipe included turmeric, however, healthy as it may be....I didn't want to go there, yet!  I figured Chinese 5 spice would be an interesting substitution for the turmeric.  It was, and we proceeded to make them disappear within 24 hours (or less).  I know they would never win a contest for the best looking cookie...who cares if they taste good and are good for you!

Five Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 Tbsp Chinese five spice powder

1/4 cup oatmeal

1/2 cup almond flour

1 ripe banana, mashed

2 Tbsp applesauce

2 Tbsp tahini (or peanut butter)

2 Tbsp coconut oil

1/2 tsp cinnamon

2 Tbsp honey

1/3 cup brown rice crisps (or rice crispy type cereal)

1/3 - 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

In a bowl, add all the ingredients, except cereal and chips, and mix well.  Add the cereal and chips blending well.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Place small spoonfulls of batter onto a parchment covered cookie sheet.  Bake for about 20-25 minutes.  This recipe makes approximately 20-24 cookies.  Enjoy!
