These things are great. They are from Rip Esselstyn's new book "My Beef with Meat" My wife and I have been slowly trying to eat more of a plant based/vegan diet. We watched Rip's documentary "The Engine 2 Kitchen Rescue" on Amazon Streaming, and he totally convinced us that we need to eat more of a plant based diet. So,we found this recipe on his website and made them today. They were super easy to make and I devoured them very fast because they were delicious.
Here is the Recipe.
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 tablespoon vanilla
¾ cup natural chunky peanut butter
3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 cups old fashioned oats
½ cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt (optional)
½ cup non-dairy chocolate chips or raisins
*to make gluten free eliminate whole wheat flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper
Mix bananas, vanilla, peanut butter and maple syrup into a creamy consistency in a large bowl
In another bowl, combine oats, flour, baking powder and salt
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until they are well combined -the batter should be slightly sticky
Fold in the chocolate chips or raisins
Place rounded, heaping tablespoon-sized balls of the batter onto an ungreased baking sheet
Bake for 15-18 minutes
-Here is what one of ours turned out like-
They are Fantastic while they are still warm but really good after they have cooled off a little bit too.
