Blog 1.21.15 copy

  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed until smooth & creamy
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter ~ creamy or chunky 
  • 4 Tbsp. Apple Butter
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Isagenix IsaPro protein)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup quick oatmeal  ~ uncooked  (or use old fashioned oats for more oatmeal texture)
  • 1/4 cup carob or chocolate chips (**optional)

 Directions: 

Preheat heat oven to 350 degrees.

 In a large bowl, mix mashed banana & peanut butter until completely combined then add in the apple butter, vanilla protein powder & the extract(s) ~ mix again until all are completely combined.

 Add in the oatmeal to the banana mixture & 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 & flatten cookies into circles. (** if you just want the carob / chocolate chips on the top of the cookies, add now)

Recipe makes 12 cookies
