Peanut butter banana “Cake Cookies”

These cookies are not your average cookie! Some might say it’s like a cake which is why I call them “cake cookies” but however you call it they’re DELICIOUS, HEALTHY and made with WHOLE WHEAT and FLAX!

You will not find eggs, oil or butter in these “cake cookies” and they are packed with flavor that will satisfy a chocolate craving with less than 50 calories per cookie.

Recipe makes 12 cookies

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground flax seed
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt

1/2 mashed over ripe banana
4 tbs non-dairy milk, I used vanilla flax milk
2 tbs peanut butter, or try a different nut butter that you prefer
1 tsp agave nectar

Raw sugar for sprinkling when they come out of the oven, optional but recommended :)

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. In another bowl mash the banana then stir in non-dairy milk, peanut butter and agave until incorporated together.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and if the batter is too dry add a 1/2 tbs non-dairy milk at a time until a wet batter is reached.

Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes. Place on a cooling rack and sprinkle with some raw sugar if you’d like!
