Marble chocolate cake mix cookies

I made these cookies last week for Jordan, since he had been on a cookie craving the past couple days. Instead of having to make everything from scratch, I used just a cake mix box and some chocolate chips. These cookies turned out perfect and made quite a few! Unfortunately, the pics didn’t turn out super well.  Since the cake mix was marble chocolate, the cocoa powder ended up giving these cookies a brownish look. So in the pics they look a little burnt. But they aren’t, they were deliscous and passed the test. Jordan is my taste tester and he gave them a thumbs up.

Here is what you will need:

A cake mix box (I used marble)

1/2 cup of chocolate chips

2 eggs

2/3 cup of Vegetable oil

I made these cookies according to the directions on the back of the box, added the chocolate chips and cooked for about 10 minutes. This cake mix made a ton of cookies. Over 24! It was so simple, I will definitely be making more cookies like this in the future!


  
  

“Healthy cookies”

 

My mom and I have been making these “healthy cookies” AKA “breakfast cookies” for years now. They are healthy (or at least I like to think they are), delicious and super easy to make! It is a family favorite and and something we make on a weekly basis. I always tweak the recipe up a little each time and they always turn out great. Here is the recipe:

– 2 very ripe bananas mashed

– 1 cup of rolled oats

– 2 tablespoons of milled flaxseeds

-1 tablespoon of chia seeds

– 1 tablespoon of PB2

-1 tablespoon of almond butter

– a small handful of chopped pecans or walnuts

-1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips

Mash the bananas add the rest of the ingredients listed in order and mix well. Form in to 1 1/2 inch balls and place on baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes.
