Banana Chunk Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a sweet spot for Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. But the one thing that keeps me from scarfing down a whole batch is not only the sugar content, but the calories. So it was a no-brainer to try out my own recipe concoction when Truvia decided to send me some of their Brown Sugar Blend to try.
I was thoroughly surprised that it had the texture, moisture like brown sugar, but with 75% fewer calories

If you're wondering how this is possible, well Truvia is made with Stevia, a plant, which has been used to sweeten foods foods and beverages naturally.
This is by far one of my favourite recipes and with half the calories of brown sugar, it may introduce itself as a treat more often!
Banana Chunk Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups Quick Oats
1/2 Cup Truvia Brown Sugar Blend
1/2 stick of butter
2 eggs
Splash of Vanilla 
1 cup Mini Chocolate Chips
1 Banana
  1. Heat over to 350. 
  2. Warm butter, mix in eggs and vanilla. 
  3. Add in Truvia Brown Sugar Blend until it is mixed well.
  4. Mix the mixture with oats.
  5. Then add in chocolate chips and banana.
The mixture will be sticky and may look a bit separated but dont worry, it will hold! Get a bit messy, use your hands and scoop them onto a cookie sheet. I did not have any wax paper left so I used foil.
Bake for 15-20 minutes based on how chewy you like them.  Mixture should yield about 20-22 small cookies!
Would you use Truvia Brown Sugar Blend in your baking?
