Healthy 3 Ingredient Oats And Banana Cookies

Healthy 3 Ingredient Oats And Banana Cookies


  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1 semi-ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup of smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
  • 1/4 cup of dark chocolate
  • 1/4 cup of coconut flakes (optional)


First, put your oats into a blender and blend at high speed to make your flour base, remove from the blender and set it aside. Mash the banana into a smooth paste and add it into the oat flour. Add in the peanut butter and mix well until smooth. Mix in the chocolate and roll out the cookie dough. Use a cookie cutter to cut out your cookies and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.


When choosing oats for weight loss, make sure you chose plain oatmeal because of its low-calorie count. Oatmeal is high in fiber, protein and very low in calories which makes it perfect for losing weight. The fiber in oatmeal helps keep you feeling full longer and improves your digestive health.


Bananas are rich in fiber and contain a considerate amount of carbs and sugars. When choosing bananas to use in your recipes, try using a slightly ripe banana instead of fully ripe bananas. This is because the less ripe bananas contain resistant starch which helps keep you feeling full longer.


When choosing chocolate for your desserts, go for dark chocolate. this is because dark chocolate is low in calories and perfect for weight loss and weight loss hormones. Study shows that dark chocolate can help reduce food cravings and keep you feeling full longer by reducing the hunger hormone known as ghrelin.
