Healthy Peanut Butter Banana Cookies

I was putting together a package for one of my favorite missionaries and I asked her mom what she would like and her mom said she had requested no sugary treats for Christmas.  Wow!  What to do?  So I found this recipe online and it looked ok so I gave it a go.  Bob and I sampled one and they were surprisingly good.  Just a little bit of brown sugar, honey and maple syrup for sweetening.

2 large ripe bananas, mashed

1 cup peanut butter

2 tablespoons maple syrup

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 1/2 cups instant oats

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1  Preheat oven to 350.  Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats, if you are using stones you don’t have to line them with anything.

2  Mix together mashed bananas and peanut butter until well combined.  Add in maple syrup, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, salt and cinnamon and mix well.

3  Add oats and mix well then stir in chocolate chips.

4  Scoop onto cookie sheets and form into cookie shapes as dough will not spread out.  Bake 14 – 15 minutes.
