Carnival Cookies

Carnival Cookies

Carnival Cookies! Are you thinking of funnel cakes, corn dogs, pink popcorn & cotton candy? Good.

Now think the opposite of that. Go on. Get your healthy cookie thinking cap on!

These cookies taste like a cross between banana bread, oatmeal cookies, trail mix & cracker jacks spiked with chocolate.

They're even better when you freeze them and eat them on the fly with some hot tea or coffee.

Also good for when you want to:

clean out the pantry

get rid of brown bananas

have an excuse to use coconut oil
