Healthy Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies

4 years ago

These cookies are by far the most popular recipe on this blog. I first blogged about them here in this post. Someone recently reached out to me asking what the calorie content was per cookie. Since this was an older recipe and I did not have the nutritional info calculated I decided these little gems needed a little update.

Thick chewy and flavorful these cookies provide the perfect touch of sweetness to cure any sweet tooth.  They can be served hot out of the oven or stored in the freezer for a healthy snack or sweet treat at a later time.

They take no time at all to prepare and only 4 simple ingredients are needed, most of which you probably already have on hand. Since I gave up chocolate for lent I substituted Reese peanut butter chips for the chocolate chips which worked just as well. The nutritional data was calculated using milk chocolate chips.
