Odds are you already have everything in your pantry needed to make these guilt-free three ingredient peanut butter cookies.
Having all the ingredients on hand, you’ll find it’s so easy to whip up a batch of these cookies, you can have fresh, piping hot cookies whenever a craving strikes.
They are perfect when you need something sweet and satisfying but don’t want the guilt of a sugary, fat-laden and refined flour cookie.
The absence of any flour or sugar makes these a perfect Paleo, Whole30 or Sugar Detox cookie. (Remember when I did the 30 Day Sugar Detox?)
By the way, no flour = naturally gluten-free. Yay!
The key to this recipe is making sure your bananas are the perfect ripeness. Your bananas should be speckled brown all over. This ensures a high level of sweetness for your cookies.
If you are truly looking to cut back on sugar and transfats, make sure the peanut butter you use is 100% ground peanuts with no added oils or sugars.
I tend to buy this brand.
It’s almost impossible to screw this recipe up. Which makes it a perfect recipe to bake with your kids.
What kid doesn’t want to smash up bananas???
You’ll know your cookies are done when they are evenly browned.
