If you haven’t tried my Baked Oatmeal Bars yet, you’re missing out!
They are also the inspiration for these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. Two of these cookies are only 3 Freestyle points. AND they’re not small cookies!
I didn’t change the recipe too much to make these cookies. I added an extra half cup of oatmeal and some chocolate chips.
Instead of using regular PB2 powder I used the PB2 powder with chocolate. If you don’t have the PB2 with chocolate you can use the regular PB2 powder.
You need two ripe bananas to make these cookies, the more ripe the better. That makes them easier to mash up.
Whenever I make a recipe with bananas people ask me what they can use in place of bananas. I honestly don’t know? Yes, these cookies do have a bit of a banana taste to them. But I think the more you mash up the bananas the less banana tasting the cookies are. Hopefully that makes sense.
I keep my leftover cookies in a sealed container in the fridge. When I want one I pop it into the microwave for a few seconds. It tastes like it just came out of the oven.
These cookies are also great for breakfast…with a cup of coffee. It’s oatmeal so it’s healthy, right? 🙂
