Ingredients

  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • ¼ cup peanut butter or other nut butter, preferably natural
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 2 Tbsp mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, mash together bananas and peanut butter.
  3. Add oats and chocolate chips and stir until combined.
  4. Drop dough by the spoonful onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Recipe should make approximately eight cookies. Using the back of a spoon, spread each drop of dough out a little to form a circle.
  5. Bake 12–15 minutes or until cookies are firm and starting to turn brown around the edges.

Note:  These cookies are best straight out of the oven while they are still warm! We do not recommend making them in advance.
