Is that name a mouth full or is it just all of these cookies the I stuffed in my mouth? I wanted to list basically all of the ingredients so that you would know that these are bomb. If you’re into having a breakfast cookie these cannot be beat.. and I mean, I am into a cookie anytime of day but these are thick and filling. They’re also super simple. I had two ripe bananas in the kitchen on a Saturday night.. then by noon the next day I noticed one had been taken… that literally never happen! No one ever eats the overripe bananas so I just assume they’ll be there for baking so I already had it in my head that I was going to make something fun out of it.. this resulted in an improvisation. I wanted to do a simple cookie that could handle only one super ripe banana. So I reduced my usual oat amount and modified a few other ingredients and booooomb. YUMMY!
Cash Creations: Oatmeal PB Banana Chocolate Cookies
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 15 – 20 mins *Depending on how soft you’d like them to be & how ripe your banana is*
Total Time out of your life: 35 mins
Yields: Approx. 12
- 1 Overripe Banana
- 1/4 cup Peanut Butter (just peanuts, organic)
- 1 TBSP Maple Syrup
- 1/2 TSP. Vanilla (pure)
- 1/3 TSP. Unrefined Sea Salt
- 1/2 cup Oats
- 1 TSP. Cinnamon
- 1/3 cup chocolate chips (70% Dark Chocolate)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- In a small bowl, mix oats, sea salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl mash the banana with a fork.
- Mix in the peanut butter (If you want to add more, I don’t blame you)
- Add in maple syrup and vanilla, mix until combined.
- Add in your dry ingredients, mixing until combined.
- Fold in your chocolate chips.
- Scoop your dough into tablespoon size balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Place in your preheated oven for 15-20 minutes depending on how you would like your cookies.
- If you want them to be soft and moist like a very good breakfast cookie, then try for 15 minutes, if you would like it to be crispier, let it sit in for another 5 minutes.
- If your dough is very wet and you’d like it to be thicker, add in more oats.
- If you want a more crispy cookie you can also flatten them more, I kept them pretty round.
- The more overripe the banana the stronger the banana flavour and the more moist it will be.
