Make Banana Oatmeal Cookies without added Sugar
If you want to go completely without added sugar for these peanut butter banana oatmeal cookies, here are a couple of ways you can take the healthy profile up a notch:
First, you can simply omit the coconut sugar here. I have tried this cookie recipe without the coconut sugar a couple of times. They are still so delicious and plenty sweet from the ripe bananas.
And the riper the banana, the sweeter the cookie.
Second, use 100% Dark chocolate chip or you can omit the chocolate chips altogether.
Tips on managing the sugar cravings
Peanut Butter and Chocolate is one of my favorite combos as you probably have already heard me talking about 20 times here.
Every once in a blue moon, I will do a sugar detox to sharpen my taste bud just a bit. Let me tell you, for someone like me who ALWAYS need a little something sweet, a sugar detox is HARD.
BUT, here is my go-to when the sugar craving kicks in:
100% Dark Chocolate and Natural Peanut Butter.
It keeps my sugar craving at bay. Trust me, this combination works every time.
Chocolate (Cacao) is known for its health benefits. It is rich in antioxidants, can boost our energy and mood.
When it comes to choosing chocolate, the darker (70% +) the better. I love this Dairy-Free Chocolate chip for baking. Or this 100% dark chocolate chips.
When it comes to choosing what peanut butter to purchase, my number one tip is:
The FEWER ingredients the BETTER.
My favorite Peanut Butter has only one ingredient – Organic Peanuts.
There are no hydrogenated oils, added sugars, or any other ingredients that I can’t pronounce.
Can I use Other Nut Butter for this cookie recipe?
Instead of peanut butter, you can use almond butter, cashew butter, or sunflower butter. Similar to choosing peanut butter, you would want to buy the nut butter that has a very minimal ingredient list.
Store Peanut butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies
Once the oatmeal cookies cooled completely, you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Certainly, you can double the batch and freeze them for a couple of months.
Get Extra with these Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
