Description

These cookies have the great flavor of peanut butter, have added protein powder, are egg and flour free, and are sweetened with bananas and applesauce. If you want to indulge, add some chocolate or carob chips & take the flavor up to the next level!

Ingredients

  • 2 whole Ripe Bananas, Mashed Until Creamy
  • ⅓ cups Peanut Butter, Creamy Or Chunky
  • ⅔ cups Unsweetened Applesauce
  • ¼ cups Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Butter Extract (optional)
  • 1-½ cup Quick Oatmeal, Uncooked
  • ¼ cups Chopped Peanuts
  • ¼ cups Carob Chips Or Chocolate Chips (optional)

Preparation

Preheat heat oven to 350ºF.

In a large bowl, mix mashed banana and peanut butter until completely combined. Then add in the applesauce, vanilla protein powder and vanilla and butter extracts. Mix again until completely combined.

Add in the oatmeal and nuts to the banana mixture and combine. (Add the optional carob/chocolate chips at this time if you want them mixed throughout.)

Let dough rest for 10 minutes.

Drop cookie dough, by spoonfuls, onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and flatten cookies into circles, about a 1/3″ thick. (If you want the optional carob/chocolate chips on the top of the cookies, push them into the cookies now.)

Bake cookies approximately 30 minutes, or until golden brown and done. Remove from oven and let rest on cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then move to cooling rack. (If you want the traditional fork tine marks on the cookies, use a pizza cutter or sharp knife to score the tops of the cookies while they’re still warm.)

When cookies are completely cool, store in a covered container. Enjoy!

These are very easy to make for a novice like me.
The only problem I had with them was that they stuck to the parchment paper.
Maybe a little cooking spray will fix this.
They tasted terrific!
