3 Ingredient Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies
"3 Ingredient vegan peanut butter cookies are ready in under 20 minutes. Great as a snack or healthy, quick dessert, you probably have these 3 ingredients in your pantry already! When I have a sweet tooth craving, I want something quick. Usually, it’s ice cream, or I’ll often do a yogurt parfait with honey and granola. These banana peanut butter cookies are perfect when you want a quick and healthy dessert or snack, and that’s that. The three ingredients you’ll need for these are: 1. Peanut Butter – I recommend a drippy one, like my all-time favorite brand 2. Bananas – The riper the better for a sweeter product and more ease with mashing 3. Oats – Any type of oats will do! I would recommend quick-cooking oats for the best result. I also like to add some sea salt on top, as it makes a big difference in exaggerating the already delicious flavor. These cookies are also very nutritious, considering we’re using three wholesome ingredients. - Each of these healthy no bake oatmeal cookies offers up 2 grams of fiber and nearly 3 grams of protein. - Peanut butter offers healthy unsaturated fats - Oats provide additional iron, beta glucan fiber, prebiotic fiber, B Vitamins and complex carbohydrates. - Bananas offer potassium, B Vitamins, Vitamin C and antioxidants. Because of this, they’re a great snack to pair with a fruit, or another protein rich snack (like jerky, hard boiled eggs, yogurt) for sustained energy."

Line baking pan with parchment paper and divide mixture into 12 scoops. I love using a cookie scooper.
