Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Cookies

If you have never considered putting chocolate and banana together, I highly recommend it. There is something about that sweet banana flavor mixed with decadent chocolate that makes these cookies amazing. The best part is that they are not only delicious, but they are healthy and packed full of nutrients. So go ahead, make a batch, and try to eat just one!

Prep time: 30 minutes

1 1/4 cup oat flour

1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter

1 extra large ripe banana, mashed
1/2 cup brown sugar (or coconut sugar)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix flour, protein powder, cocoa powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl.

2. In a separate bowl, add chocolate peanut butter and coconut oil. Microwave for 30 seconds to melt coconut oil. Whisk together. Add mashed banana, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
