Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter (I used natural peanut butter)
  • 1 cup mashed banana (2 large or 3 small-medium)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (may substitute with maple syrup, honey, granulated or brown sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats (use certified GF if gluten intolerant)
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions 

  • Position the oven racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Line (2) large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, mash the banana. Add the peanut butter, coconut sugar, eggs, baking soda, pinch of salt and vanilla and beat or whisk until well combined.
  • Stir in the oats and chocolate chips.  The batter will be sticky.
  • Using a 1 1/2" cookie scoop, scoop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving at least 1" in between each cookie.
  • Bake on the upper and lower thirds of the oven for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden brown and set, rotating the pans halfway through the baking time. Remove from heat and cool completely on wire racks. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Pro tip: Overripe bananas will provide the most flavor, so the more spotted the better!
  • These cookies have a soft texture with a nice chewiness from the oats.
  • Use your favorite brand of peanut butter (crunchy or creamy is fine!), but the texture of the cookies may vary slightly depending on the type you use.
  • If you choose to use liquid sweetener such as maple syrup or honey instead of coconut sugar, the batter will be a bit looser and stickier.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3-5 days or in the refrigerator for up to one week.
