Chocolate Chip Banana Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies have no added sugar and no eggs in them. This is not for any big health benefit or anything, although less added sugar is always a good thing. It is because there were no eggs in the house, so I had to use bananas, and therefore didn’t need sugar. And cookies were required. Now that I’ve figure out roughly what my cookie batters look like when I make them with bananas, it’s getting really easy to just guestimate what I need and magically end up with cookies. The peanut butter ups the protein, and the oatmeal ups the fibre. They’re still treats, I wouldn’t binge eat the whole batch or anything (I would, I just mean it’s probably not the healthiest option), but these are a slightly healthier version for those who love their cookies. Also, the lack of eggs means the cookie dough is fair game!

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup oatmeal
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the bananas and peanut butter together with a fork.
  3. Gradually add the oatmeal, flour, and baking soda and mix until you have a big sticky ball.
  4. Add the milk gradually to thin everything out until it looks like normal cookie dough. Add the vanilla.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  6. Use a spoon to dollop the dough onto a non-stick baking sheet. You should be able to make 2 dozen cookies.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes.
