This banana oatmeal cookie recipe tastes too good to be healthy, but it is. Using only 4 ingredients makes for a quick and easy healthy treat.
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup Quick or Instant Oats
1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips
1 heaping tablespoon peanut butter
Preheat your oven to 350 F. Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Drop a spoonful of dough onto your cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.
The recipe we found didn’t call for putting them in the refrigerator, but we put them in and think they taste better cold.
I would say that eating one is all you need. The sweetness from the banana and dark chocolate really feels like you are indulging.
Our batch made 20 cookies.
