Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies
These healthy cookies don’t taste like regular “cookies.” They have no sugar, butter, or oil. But they are still very yummy! My kids can eat an entire batch in one sitting. I don't have to worry about them eating to their hearts content, because these cookies are packed with protein, fiber and minerals your little ones need for growing. These make a great “on the go” breakfast!
Makes: about 24 cookies
Takes: about 5 minutes to prep + 10 minutes to bake
2 Cups Quick Oats (unflavored, uncooked)
½ cup peanut butter (any kind, avoid “natural” peanut butter for this recipe)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup raisins (or chocolate chips, or other dried fruit)
Mash 2 bananas and a large bowl.
Add 2 cups of quick oatmeal (unflavored, uncooked oats).
Add ½ cup peanut butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla, ½ teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
Stir and stir and stir until well combined. The dough is safe to eat raw if you want to!

Bake at 350 degrees until cookies are light brown and don’t fall apart when you pick them up with a spatula.
These make a great “on the go” breakfast for busy mornings.
