These cookies are so simple--only 5 ingredients! The best part is they are healthier than your average cookie. They are moist, chewy and crispy-brown on the bottom. My family likes them as a snack or even for breakfast, and I hope yours does too! (Note #1: These cookies are best enjoyed fresh--meaning within the first day or two of being made. This is because they are very moist, and the moisture changes the texture of the cookie the longer they are stored in an air-tight container. Note #2: DO NOT substitute any other type of oats. Use only quick-cooking oats, or the cookies will not hold together as well once baked.)
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a medium bowl, mash bananas with the back of a fork. Stir in peanut butter and brown sugar. Then stir in oats and flour until thoroughly combined.
- Onto a greased cookie sheet, drop cookie dough by heaping teaspoonfuls. Gently flatten cookie mounds to 1/2 inch thickness.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes or until cookie bottoms are light brown, and tops are no longer shiny.
Nice healthy treat. They were a little lacking in flavor so I added a few sprinkles of apple pie spice. That made them much better. Cinnamon would work too. Otherwise they taste like bananas, oatmeal, and peanut butter.
This is an easy peasy, yummy vegan cookie :) It was a bit fluffy and the banana was the prominent tasting ingredient, but the kids, the dog (he's spoiled!) and I love them. You really can't beat 5 ingredients and 15 minutes for yummy goodness!!!<br/>Thanks for the recipe :)
I think maybe if you HAD to go dairy and egg free then these would be ok. They are edible. I was a little skeptical of the lack of some key ingredients but tried it anyway and I was right. Kind of gross actually. Really bad texture. I used parchment (thank God) because even still I couldn't pry them off of it. They didn't hold together well when picking them up. They tasted exactly like banana, peanut butter and oats so like I said, edible but not a good cookie. (I even added m&ms and it didn't help.)
