Healthy Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies made in a little over 15 minutes with just 4 ingredients. Bake them in an oven or air fryer and enjoy for breakfast, snack or dessert.
2 medium very ripe bananas , (about 276 grams / 10 oz once peeled)
6 tablespoons peanut butter , or any other nut/seed butter
1½ cup (150 grams) rolled/old fashioned oats
⅛ teaspoon fine sea salt
heaping ¼ cup (50 grams) chocolate chips , plus a few more to decorate the top
Make the cookie dough as above.
Line air fryer basket with a piece of parchment paper, making sure to leave some space for air flow around the edges. Alternatively, if just cooking one or 2 at a time you can cut small cookie sized squares of paper. Leftover uncooked cookie dough will keep in the fridge for a few days.
Scoop the cookie dough out onto the parchment paper, then with wet fingers, press each cookie mound down into an approximately half inch thick round and smooth around the edges to neaten them up.
Air fry, on the bake setting if you have one, at 325 for about 8 minutes or until golden on the bottom and lightly browned and set on the top and sides. All air fryers vary so keep a close eye on them in the last few minutes.
You can switch out the chocolate chips for any other mix-ins you fancy. Some ideas include chocolate chunks, cacao nibs, shredded coconut, walnuts, pecans, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, or dried fruit like cranberries or raisins.
