Recipe Notes

Serving and Storing - Serve immediately as an afternoon snack. These cookies are super healthy and the kids love them. Store uneaten cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.

Recipe Tips

  1. Make sure to use very ripe bananas. This adds sweetness to the recipe. Ripe bananas are also easier to incorporate into the batter.
  2. I use natural peanut butter which tends to be looser than conventional peanut butter. If you are using conventional peanut butter, consider adding 1/4--1/2 more banana.
  3. These cookies are delicious on their own but also make a great base for so many add-in options. A few of my favorite add-ins are raisins, chia seeds, nuts, and vanilla extract.
  4. If you have a peanut allergy, you can swap it out for any other kind of nut butter
  5. For gluten-free cookies, make sure to look for gluten-free oats.
