There’s a backstory to the reason why I’ve gotten back on the “make your own protein, good for you snacks” train, but really, I know I just scroll by most of the “backstories” on other recipe posts, and not to mention – I’ve seen the abundance of memes popping up lately saying: Just get to the point Betty Crocker. I’m not here to read about your kid eating her boogers, or your other kid that decided to shave the dog – so you made these cookies!
These cookies are delicious. They’re good for you. And they’re super easy, and quick to make. I used a small ice cream scooper (about a tablespoon? …maybe a bit bigger), and got 18 out of my batch. They don’t flatten, or grow, so you can tuck them onto the bake sheet nice and tightly.
Chocolate oat cookies
2 medium ripe bananas
2 scoops protein
1 cup rolled oats (or old fashioned oats)
2 tbsp peanut butter
2 tbsp chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (unbleached).
Mash bananas with a fork. Add in protein powder, oats, peanut butter, and mix well. Fold in chocolate chips.
Spoon the mixture onto the baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
**Store in an airtight container, in the refrigerator for up to one week.
