Peanut Butter + Banana Oat Cookies

If you have any bananas lying around that are getting super ripe, these cookies are an easy yummy treat! They satisfied the sweet “teeth” in my house and didn’t last very long at all. It’s a really flexible recipe that makes it really easy to add in whatever you’d like and these would still turn out great. The original recipe called for 1/4 cup of cocoa, I left it out and added an additional 1/4 cup of peanut butter. You could also throw in flax seeds, chia seeds, unsweetened coconut flakes, chocolate chips – you name it! Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:
  • 3 bananas
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Dash of cinnamon
METHOD: 
1.  Preheat oven to 350.
2.  Mash bananas in a large bowl, then stir in remaining ingredients.
3.  Let batter stand for approximately 20 minutes, then drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon if desired.
4.  Bake 10-12 minutes or until cookies start browning. I kept my cookies in the fridge where they didn’t have to wait very long to be eaten.
*Use organic ingredients whenever possible.
