No Bake PB2 Banana Oatmeal Cookies
Spring is here and it’s time to start thinking about including healthy snacks into your diet to help fuel your busy day. The best tip we have for you is to have healthy snacks on hand to curb in between meal hunger. PB2 is our favorite go-to snack ingredient because it’s easy to work with and packed with healthy properties. PB2 has 85% less fat than traditional peanut butter and it’s very economical. Two tablespoons have only 45 calories and one gram of fat, with an added four grams of protein.
Here are some of the beneficial ingredients in these cookies:
- Oats are a rich source of fiber, both insoluble and soluble, which helps with regulating the digestive system. Since oats keep you feeling full longer, these are great breakfast cookies.
- Bananas – Try eating two bananas before a strenuous workout. This will give you a nice energy boost while sustaining your blood sugar.
- Coconut Flakes are packed full of flavor and make a healthy snack choice. We use 100% unsweetened organic coconut flakes for this recipe. Although you definitely want to eat these in moderation, they work as a great flavoring agent and give the cookies a sticky texture so no other fats are needed.
