Coo Coo for Cookies

Cookies3

Sometimes I start craving cookies in a bad way.  Although there is a time and place for them, I don’t always care for the heavy, sugar loaded, buttery cookies all the time.  A couple of days ago, I spied two over-ripe bananas and a bunch of other fun ingredients. I decided to see what would happen if I whipped up a batch. The results turned out to great!

These cookies, because of the lack of fat (except for the peanut butter) are more chewy which gives them a taste like banana bread.  They also, are not super sweet, so if you wanted to add more honey you could do so.

I topped the cookies with roughly 1 Tsp. of Nutella on top.

These are perfect for anytime of the day, on the go snacks, or bed time treat.

Hope you enjoy as much as we did!

Peanut Butter Banana Bread Cookies:

  • 2 Medium Over-ripe bananas
  • 2 Tbsp. Ground Flax Seed
  • 2 Tbsp. Protein Powder (any kind should work)
  • 1/4- 1/2 c. Honey (depending on how sweet you want them)
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Tsp. Cinnamon
  • 2 Tsp. Local Bee Pollen (can omit)
  • 2 Heaping Tbsp. All Natural Peanut Butter (or any nut butter)
  • 2 C. (or more depending on consistency) of Whole Oats

mixing

Place bananas in bowl and mash.  Add rest of ingredients to the bowl and stir until everything is combined.  Scoop 1 Tbsp. size or ice cream scoop size onto tray and smash down lightly.
