Get ready to indulge in these Healthy Cookies that are not just good for the soul, but also for the body. These treats are made from wholesome ingredients that prove you can enjoy cookies without sacrificing your health-conscious goals. They’re really nutritious too!

Healthy Cookies with Oatmeal, Banana and Peanut Butter

These healthy cookies redefine guilt-free indulgence. Made from oatmeal, ripe bananas, and creamy peanut butter, they provide a mouthful of flavour while keeping your well-being in mind. The simplicity of these ingredients showcases that things don’t need to be complicated to turn out great. Here’s what you need:

  • Oatmeal: Whole-grain oatmeal serves as the hearty base of these cookies, offering fiber and a satisfying chewiness. We use fine oats as whole oats might make them more dry. If you only have whole oats, we recommend making them fine in a food processor
  • Banana: Ripe bananas bring natural sweetness and moisture, replacing the need for excessive sugar or fats. Use bananas with lots of brown spots
  • Peanut Butter: Creamy peanut butter adds a delightful nutty richness and protein content that keeps you feeling full and satisfied. You can substitue this with any nut butter
  • Topping: To make these cookies even more spectacular, opt for raisings, dark chcocolate chips, cranberries or nuts

Still deciding? How about our healthy mango sorbet, stuffed dates or avocado milkshake to satisfy the sweet tooth
