3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

I love oatmeal for breakfast but in the summer I tend to take a break. A bowl of hot oats is just not as appealing when it’s 97 degrees outside. These peanut butter banana breakfast cookies are the best of both worlds. They make it easy to enjoy the same bowl of oats only it’s handheld. Plus the cookies can be made ahead. They make a great grab and go breakfast and are good for both kids and adults. 

These 3-ingredient breakfast cookies have no added sugar. Natural peanut butter is just peanuts and salt – so no sugar there. The banana delivers the sweetness. Be sure to use a very ripe banana – one with way more brown than yellow – so you get the best flavor. If you accidentally use a banana that’s not quite sweet enough, add a drizzle of maple syrup or your favorite sweetener to the mix before baking.

I found the original recipe on one of my favorite sites, Cooking Light. I saw them make their Banana Bread Breakfast Cookies and didn’t believe just 2 ingredients would work. But in some magical way – it does! And as I am a huge peanut butter & banana fan, I thought to put the two together in my version of the cookies. I like to make them on a Sunday night and store them in a sealed container in the pantry. I’ll grab one for a snack or as an easy breakfast with tea. I’ve even popped them into the toaster oven for a toasty, warm cookie.

This recipe is a good base. Add cinnamon, dried blueberries or chocolate chips to make them your own. Try it out and let me know what you think!

    3 ingredients – it doesn’t get any better than that! Let alone how amazing each one of these ingredients is on their own!

    Peanut butter and bananas is such an awesome combo but I don’t think I’ve had them together in a cookie! These sound perfect!
