These cookies are amazing.
They take literally 5 minutes to make, use only 3 ingredients (ok so plus extras IF wanted), and take just 15-20 minutes to bake.. they are the ideal in-between meal snack or pre/post workout energy boost.
If you don’t have whey protein simply use a low calorie hot chocolate powder!
- 60-90g (~1 cup) oats* - more if your bananas are large!
- 2 ripe bananas**
- 1 scoop (~25-30g) protein powder***
Optional: 2 tsp peanut butter & 70g (~1/2 cup) dark chocolate chips or dried fruit & seeds!
*To make this recipe gluten free use gluten free oats.
**If you don’t like banana swap for 200g apple puree (I use the no added sugar pots from the baby food aisle!)
***I used My Protein (Vanilla Whey Protein) in this recipe but I’ve also used strawberry and chocolate flavour (with extra cocoa!) as well as banana flavour too! If you don’t have protein powder use hot chocolate powder or skimmed milk powder plus cocoa/stevia.
Pre-heat oven to 175 degrees C (350 degrees F)
Mash your bananas with a fork (or add apple puree to your bowl)
Add your protein powder and mix (add a tbsp of almond milk or water if needed)
Mix in your oats (and any optional ingredients)
Dollop your cookie mixture onto baking paper or a greased baking tray
Bake for 15-20 minutes

P.S I added sunflower seeds and goji berries to this cookie mix…
.. And I used chocolate protein powder for these (with extra cocoa!)
*Above is diet chocolate whey with added ginger and peanut butter.. *yum* !
*Above are the cookies made without protein powder.. just bananas, oats, peanut butter, dried fruit and nuts (see comment below!)
*Love the added chocolate chips!
*With chocolate chips!
*For a treat the whey protein was swapped for either M&M’s or ground almonds!
*Made with Purition protein powder (my fave!) – use NIC10 to get 10% off!
