Soft and chewy oatmeal cookies that are just 4 simple ingredients. These cookies don’t contain any flour, eggs or additional sugar, making them healthy enough to eat for breakfast or an afternoon snack.
I have been making a lot of oatmeal recipes lately. I just can’t seem to stop. My latest are these 4 ingredient flourless peanut butter oatmeal cookies. These cookies are similar to my 2 ingredient banana oatmeal cookies. While I love making those cookies, a few people found them to be a little too plain. This version adds more flavor and they have a chewier texture.
You want very ripe or overripe bananas so that you can mash them down just like you would for banana bread.
Use creamy natural peanut butter with no added sugar. This peanut butter will be easier to stir and mix into the batter.
As you can see from the photos, I used chocolate chips. But if you want to make them even healthier, I would use dried fruit like dried cranberries, blueberries or cherries. You should try to use something sweet because the cookies are not very sweet on their own since there is no added sugar.
