I’m forever looking for ways to use ripe bananas. This is a GREAT option! Plus, if you or the kiddos need breakfast on the go, this will do! (they’r easy and yummy, too!) Oh…and these could also be made with applesauce instead of bananas. If you do that, swap out the chocolate chips for raisins or cinnamon chips.
- 2 cups quick oats
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 cup mashed ripe bananas
- ½ cup peanut butter (or another nut or non-nut butter)
- 2 TBS honey
- 1 tsp vanilla
- ½ cup chopped pecans, or your favorite nut
- ¼ cup chocolate chips (or raisins)
Preheat to 350°F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Dump oats, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl; whisk to combine.
Stir in mashed bananas, peanut butter, honey, vanilla, pecans, and chocolate chips.
Scoop dough to form cookies and flatten the top
Bake for 14 minutes or until set.
Allow cookies to cool completely on baking sheet before storing in an airtight container.
