Peanut Butter and Banana Breakfast Cookies

These healthy cookies are a great way to use up leftover oatmeal and overripe bananas. If you like peanut-butter and banana sandwiches, you’ll love these!

1 cup cooked oatmeal
1 mashed overripe banana
1 egg
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 tbsp honey
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup chopped dates

In a large bowl, combine oatmeal, banana, egg, peanut butter and honey. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder and dates. Add to wet ingredients and mix well. Drop spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet and bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes.
Makes about 24 cookies.

When I set out to make these cookies, I was originally planning on making my Soft Oatmeal and Banana Breakfast Cookies, but I was too lazy to print off the recipe so I winged it and ended up with something completely different. I think these are even tastier than the original ones! They’re sweeter, thanks to the dates and honey, so more appealing to kids. The peanut-butter adds a really nice flavour too. I packed these in the kids’ lunches and they seemed to enjoy them. I certainly did. I saw Tony sneak a few too, so I think he liked them as well.
