Last night after work, I went to the gym and got in a REALLY good full body work out!  (I am so sore today)  Afterwards, I was blog browsing and came across this wonderful healthy living type of blog where I found a great recipe for these cookies!  I decided I had to make them right away.
You can check out the blog and original recipe for yourself here.
I modified a few things, and it they turned out so good!

Here are the ingredients I used:
2 tbsp salted butter, softened
2 tsp. vegetable oil
2 Medium Bananas
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 egg white
3/4 Cup flour (it calls for white, and that was all that I have at the moment.. but i'm going to try whole wheat next time)
1/2 tsp Baking Powder (she used 1/4 tsp. of baking soda, but I didn't have any!  So I used twice as much baking powder, and it turned out great!)
1/2 Cup chocolate chips (obviously, I went over the half cup a little bit.. :)
I chose to add:
1 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder.

Oven preheated to 375*
First I mashed together the bananas, brown sugar, vegetable oil and butter.  Then I added in the vanilla, salt, and egg white.  Slowly, I blended in the flour and baking powder.  Then I added in chocolate chips and the protein powder.

This recipe advised to drop 1/2 teaspoon sized cookies onto a cookie sheet.  This would make for each cookie to be approximately 34 calories.  That's cool..  but I didn't do that.  Mine were a full tablespoon.
If you do the mini cookies, it directs to bake for about 4-6 minutes, but mine being bigger, I baked them for about 8.

They are perfect!  The banana keeps the cookies so moist, and I couldn't believe how little sugar, butter, and oil was used.  I think I'll try a few healthy and different modifications in the future.  I'll keep you posted :)
