Peanut butter and banana is a winning combination in any dessert and the gooey-ness of these cookies is the icing on the cake! I used oats in this recipe, but to make them paleo you can use the same amount of almond meal and they would still be just as delicious. And the minimal amount of ingredients means they are so quick and easy to bake if you are in a rush... so no excuses!
For all you peanut butter addicts out there, this will certainly satisfy those cravings without having to eat the whole jar (because who can stop at one spoonful?). And sweetened with only one banana means they are low in sugar and perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up served warm with a cup of tea.
1 banana, mashed
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (no nasties added)
Dash almond milk
1 cup oats (or almond meal for paleo version)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
50g 85% dark chocolate
1) Line a baking tray with baking paper and preheat oven to 180 degrees (fan forced)
2) Mix together mashed banana, peanut butter, egg and almond milk in a bowl until well combined.
3) Add the oats (or almond meal), baking powder and cinnamon until mixed through.
4) Break the chocolate into small pieces and stir through mixture.
5) Add small spoonfuls of mixture onto a baking tray and bake in oven for 8-10 minutes.
6) Remove from oven and eat one (or two)!
These cookies are best served warm whilst the chocolate is still melted and the peanut butter is gooey - so eat straight away (but try and save some if you have the willpower!!). Delishhhhhhhhhhh.
