Healthy Peanut Butter Banana No-Bake Cookies
2 3/4 cup quick oats
2 large bananas
3/4 cup peanut butter preferably natural PB
1 scoop protein powder chocolate or vanilla
4 tbsp milled flaxseed
4 tbsp almond milk unsweetened vanilla
1/3 cup cocoa powder unsweetened
1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
2-3 tbsp stevia in the raw powder
Anyone else obsessed with peanut butter and chocolate? I am not typically a cookie fan, but no-bakes are a totally different story! I looooooove no-bake cookies, but they are just terrible for the waistline. I decided to make my own concoction, as always, and this is what I came up with:
Pour almond milk into a saucepan. Add cocoa powder, mashed bananas, and peanut butter.
Put the stove on low heat and continue stirring and mashing up the mixture until well blended. It is okay if you still see small chunks of banana.
Add the coconut oil, oats, flaxseed, and stevia to the saucepan. Remove from the heat and mix well. Add the protein powder and mix well. The mixture should be very thick.
Line a cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper.
Scoop a large spoonful of the cookie mixture and form in the shape of a cookie with your hands. Place the cookie on the parchment paper and continue process until the mixture is gone.
Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes or until firm. Enjoy right away and/or store the remaining cookies (in an airtight container/baggie) in the refrigerator.
