I’m excited to share two healthy AND delicious recipes with you today. I couldn’t just stop at one. I’ve been having fun testing recipes with the Vi-Shape. My family ate these healthy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies literally seconds after I snapped the picture. They never would have guessed there was no butter added in these cookies and only 50 calories per cookie. I’m so sneaky! ;)

Healthy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies


  • 1 large old banana
  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/8 cup semi sweet chocolate chips


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium sized bowl mash banana. Mix in salt and cinnamon. Stir until combined. Stir in oats and chocolate chips and stir until combined.
  2. Place the dough onto a greased cookie sheet by the spoonful. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.


Yield 6-8 cookies (perfect amount for a little treat)! Feel free to double the recipe.

    We LOVE visalus! These recipes look so yummy! My hubby has lost over 60 pounds and so far I am down 10! We have replaced my income and are loving our healthy new life style! Thanks for sharing the recipes!

    A few years ago I lost 35 lbs. using the Visalus products. My favorite shake was 1% milk, Tropicana 50 orange juice, 1/2 banana, shake mix and ice. Tastes like an Orange Julius. I drink a few shakes a week and have not gained any of my weight back. Definitely trying your Moo’d!

    Amazing blog. I learned so many wonderful things in it. Can’t wait to try those recipes especially that I am craving for chocolate chip cookies. This is quite a different one though because it was intended to be healthier.

    Sorry, new to your Blog & I posted before commenting. :) I was just going to add that I make very similar cookies, except I add flax and peanut butter. They are great for a fast breakfast.

    I love my Vi Shakes! I have been a promoter and on The Challenge for almost a year and lost 14lbs! I’m so excited to use my shake mix for healthy cooking and not just shakes :)
