Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies1 ripe banana - the riper the better
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
Any or all of the following:
Walnuts, pecans, etc
Mash the banana and continue to mash until it liquefies. Add peanut butter, honey and the cocoa and mix well. Add coconut (optional) and mix well. Add the oatmeal a little at a time until you get a nice soft dough like consistency. You don't want it dry, but you don't want it wet either. I use about 2 cups of oatmeal. Sometimes more, sometimes less - depending on my additions. Mix well. Add chocolate chips and dried fruit and nuts. Mix well. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto wax paper. Let set up and store in airtight container. I keep these in the refrigerator or freezer.
