Ingredients
  • 1 very ripe banana, mashed
  • ½ Tbsp. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 3 Tbsp. rolled oats
  • 1 Tbsp. peanut butter
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Directions:
  2. If using an oven rather than microwave, preheat to 375°F.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, combine banana, almond milk, and peanut butter, stirring until thoroughly combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. If using microwave: For one large cookie, simply spread mixture in bowl and microwave on high for 4-1/2 minutes. If you are making four cookies you can spray a plate, 4 small bowls or 4 ramekins. (The ramekins are nice to keep the cookies contained and perfectly round.)
  5. Scoop out about 2-1/2 tablespoons each, and flatten on the plate or in ramekin. Repeat for each ramekin.
  6. Place the four ramekins or the one plate in microwave on high for 4 minutes. Depending on the strength of your microwave cooking time may vary. Simply use a toothpick or a fork and poke cookie the whole way through. *If wetness comes off on fork or toothpick, continue to put back in microwave in 30 second increments until cooked.
Notes
IIf making one big cookie, may want to place plate in fridge or freezer to help “congeal” for a minute after cooking.

*If using oven: Place 2-1/2 Tbsp of mixture on a greased baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven when cooked completely through.
