The other day I had two dead bananas! I called them “dead”, because they had a lot of brown spots. I usually like my bananas to have nice, vibrant, yellow color. For me any brown spots on the banana equals “process of dying”. Haha! 🙂
I decided to experiment and make them into some kind of protein balls. After I mashed them I added PB2, protein powder and some instant oats. The mixture was still kind of runny. It wasn’t even sticky. It looked like a bowl of oatmeal. Then I added another scoop of protein powder and more oats. But the consistency didn’t change much. Then I decided to bake it into cookies. It was a total experiment. I didn’t even add eggs.
Banana Strawberry PB2 Protein Cookies
1 cup instant oats
2 medium bananas, mashed
3 tablespoons PB2
1 tablespoon sugar free strawberry jam
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
1) Mash your bananas. 😉
2) Add all other ingredients in the same bowl and mix well. You may need some water if it is too thick, add small amounts at a time though.
*Remember it is easier to add then take away.*
3) Scoop the mixture out with a spoon, and make the cookies as big or as little, as you want them to be.
4) Bake them at 400 F for until they are done.
5) Enjoy! 🙂
