These Banana Peanut Butter & Oat Cookies are a healthy and delicious breakfast or snack. Kids will love them! 🍪Plus are the perfect way to use up overripe bananas!🍌
2 overripe bananas (approximately 200g)
100g smooth peanut butter or any smooth nut butter (I use pipenut)
1 tbsp agave/maple syrup or honey* (optional)
140g oats (use gluten free oat if needed)
Handful of chocolate chips (optional)
*NOTE: use honey only for babies over 1 year old
Preheat your oven to 180°C. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat. Set aside.
Place the bananas in a medium sized bowl and mash it with a fork. Add the smooth peanut butter and the agave/maple syrup (if used) and give everything a good stir until combined.
Add the oats and mix well.
Take a tablespoon of the mixture in your hand, roll into a ball and place on the baking tray. Repeat until all your mixture is used up.
Top them with chocolate chips, if using (I like to do half and half, do the plain one to my little one and the chocolate one for myself).
Squash the balls with a fork or with your fingers to flatten into a thick disk.
Place in the oven and cook for 10-15 minutes or when they just begin to go golden brown around the edges.
Take out of the oven and leave to cool.
