I'm thinking it would be convenient to have a swear-word version of Lorem Ipsum to insert here. Who @#&^% *%#@ knew that creating a new website could cause so many problems? I am slowly fixing the print buttons. I apologize for sending out random (old) newsletter posts to my subscribers (what the heck?!). My to-fix list is large and overwhelming, but I'll get there. Thank you for being here AND for being patient with the glitches.

A few weeks ago I found my countertop, once again, laden with geriatric bananas. If I did not have a food blog, I'd make the same delish banana bread and muffins over and over. Or maybe these Banana Bars, which is one of my favorite desserts of ALL-TIME. Since I do have a food blog, I always feel the need to come up with something new. On that particular day I needed simple and quick and this recipe could not have fit the bill any better. I was shocked at how delicious these cookies were! Three (or four, if you want to add chocolate) ingredients, 20 minutes and a yummy, healthy cookie was in my hungry, busy fingers.

HOW TO MAKE THREE-INGREDIENT PEANUT BUTTER BANANA COOKIES RECIPE

Making these Three-Ingredient Cookies is really easy!

STEP 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine the bananas, oats, peanut butter and chocolate chips (if using). Stir until combined.

STEP 2

Drop 1-inch balls of dough onto prepared baking sheet. Press down slightly on each ball of dough. Place the baking sheets in the preheated oven to bake for 15 minutes. Let the cookies cool completely. Enjoy!

BAKING TIPS

  • For a little crunch in your cookies, instead of creamy peanut butter, substitute in crunchy peanut butter.

  • For a little healthier cookie, substitute natural peanut butter or almond butter.

  • A teaspoon of vanilla extract would be delicious

OPTIONAL ADD-INS

If you are ok with more than a 3 ingredient cookie, try one of these add ins!

  • chopped almonds or pecans

  • raisins or dried blueberries

  • swap out chocolate chips for dark chocolate chunks

STORING AND FREEZING YOUR COOKIES

These cookies should be kept in an air-tight container in the fridge for 3-5 days. You can also freeze them for 2-3 months in a freezer ziploc bag or an air-tight container.
