This recipe has been circulating on facebook, so I have absolutely no claim to it! I made the recipe the other night and wanted to share because they are a healthy snack, perfect for satisfying that sweet tooth without a lot of sugar and fat!
- 3 bananas (ripe)
- 1⁄4 cup peanut butter
- 1⁄3 cup applesauce
- 1⁄4 cup dark cocoa
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups oatmeal
- Beat the bananas using a mixer or whisk until smooth. Add in all of the other ingredients, mix well, and let sit for 20 minutes. Drop by the heaping teaspoonful onto a cookie sheet and bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes. I use the silicon baking sheets (if you don't have one, they are worth every penny!).
I did not like these at all...the cocoa powder is too strong. No banana or peanut butter taste at all. They need some type of suger (preferably diabetic type) They leave a nasty aftertaste and no one in my house enjoyed them. Needs a recipe rehab unless I did something wrong.
I would give this recipe no stars if I could. I agree with the others. Whoever came up with this recipe needs to go back to the drawing board. It was a waste of good ingredients. I even added more peanut butter and some Splenda to give them sweetness. Nothing helped.
Sorry, this is one awful recipe. Very disappointing. Consistency of dough and bitter, offensive taste. Perhaps cutting back on the cocoa powder and adding honey would help?
