PEANUT BUTTER BANANZAS

I usually do a drink or a dessert in each blog, as I think that it is a choice to make – drink OR dessert most of the time, but not always.😉These could be considered a dessert, but absolutely could be consumed as part of a breakfast meal with some fresh fruit, or as a power-it-up afternoon snack – especially for kids who are on-the-go-go!

Equipment

  • cookie tray

Ingredients
  

  • ¾ cup ripe bananas 2-3, depending on their size
  • 1 cup all-natural peanut butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup instant oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line a cookie tray with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, mash bananas with a fork. Add peanut butter, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla. Using an electric mixer, beat until smooth.
  • In a separate small bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add to the peanut butter mixture, beating until well-combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Using a tablespoon measure or cookie scoop, form them into rounded balls and place them on the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 9 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Makes about 2 dozen cookies. Store in an airtight container for up to a week, or in the freezer for up to a month. Either way, heat before consuming (approximately 8 seconds in the microwave if fresh; 15 seconds if frozen), as they are best warmed!
