Do you ever find yourself craving something sweet but are A: too lazy too make anything, and/or B: Need to watch your waistline? Well this is just about the story of my life. Now I wouldn’t call myself lazy when it comes to baking, just because I love doing it, but if I could make something delicious in 10 minutes, I’m doing it! That is why Rice Krispie Treats and I are friends. The inspiration for these cookies came from a combination of my love for 90 second cookies which I found on Lauren Conrad’s website, and my love for funfetti cookies. The LC cookies are easy because cooking in a waffle iron speeds up the baking, and the funfetti because there are 3 ingredients! Now only if I could combine the two… oh wait! I did!
4 ingredients, 90 seconds.
I am not going to come out and say this is a SUPER healthy cookie. Cake mix alone is 178 calorie for 1/10 of the box. This makes about 20 cookies, so around 89 calories from that, an egg is about 90 calories so that is 4.5 calories in a cookie. Then you can judge how many chocolate chips you want, but I put in a cup which is 320 calories, which is 16 a cookie. The banana adds about 5 calories to each, so all in all around 115 calories a cookie!
This will be a short blog because all you have to do is mix those ingredients, and scoop into a waffle iron.
Close it up, and about 90 – 100 seconds later….
Easy as that! Definitely a perfect treat in all ways! The best part is you can definitely do variations. Maybe chocolate cake mix and peanut butter chips? Add some oats and raisins? Your call!
