Ingredients

  • 1 ⅔ c quick cooking oats regular or gluten free
  • 1 ½ very ripe banana, (about ⅔ cup mashed)
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ¼ c maple syrup
  • 2 T unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 T ground flax
  • ½ tsp sea salt

Optional add ins

  • raisins
  • dark chocolate chips
  • chopped nuts
  • dried cranberries

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • In a mixing bowl, mash banana until smooth.
  • Add in all other ingredients and stir until completely combined. Add in about 1 cup of add ins if desired.
  • Spoon onto parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool. Drizzle with melted chocolate chips if desired. Store in the refrigerator for 4-5 days or air tight at room temperature for 2-3 days. If chilled, warm for 10 seconds in the microwave before eating.

Notes

  • These Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal cookies are WAY better slightly undercooked than over cooked any day. There isn't any flour or eggs in them, so from a safety perspective you are fine. They will dry out if you cook them too long. I tend to cook them right about 8 minutes and 30 seconds most of the time. Ovens are different for sure.
  • The chocolate drizzle is totally optional. A white chocolate drizzle is amazing though as well if you are interested!
  • For extra flavor, you can add some cinnamon. I usually am not a fan of peanut butter and cinnamon so typically skip it. But the times I have used the cinnamon, the family loves it.
  • For dairy free, use melted coconut oil or your favorite oil to bake with.
