Servings 15 cookies
- 2 small-medium spotted or brown bananas, mashed (170 grams/about heaping 1/2 cup)
- 1 cup rolled oats (110 grams)*
- 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons peanut butter (96 grams) (you can use smooth or chunky)
- 2 scoops, packed Ka'Chava Chocolate Protein Powder (1/2 cup, packed/64 grams)
- pinch of salt (optional)
- for topping: flakey sea salt (optional)
Line a plate or baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add bananas to a medium bowl and mash with a fork until no or little lumps remain. Add in remaining ingredients and mix well to combine. Batter should be a little sticky. Let sit for a few minutes to firm up if needed.
Scoop out 1 heaping tablespoon of mixture, form into a cookie shape, and place on a baking sheet. If needed, wet hands with some water to help with sticking. Repeat with the remaining mixture. You should get about 15 cookies.
Place in the fridge for 1-2 hours until firm. If desired, sprinkle with a little flakey sea salt. Store in the fridge and enjoy!
*use certified gluten free if desired
