Several months ago I shared with you how you can make cookies out of baby cereal. I love this recipe, but I don’t always have molasses or butter on hand, and I wanted to try to make a batch of cookies with pantry items I do have. And yes, I found some baby cereal in the back of my pantry, so I needed to use it up! I also wanted something a little less crumbly. So I added an egg, some oil, and some peanut butter. The results were great! They are soft without falling apart, but the cookies still aren’t super sweet. I would compare the level of sweetness to a graham cracker. But all the kids who have tried these...aged 22 months to 9 years…have gobbled them down. My toddlers ask for more, so I consider these cookies to be a success.
2 very ripe bananas cut up
½ cup oil
½ cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup whole wheat flour
2 ½ cups baby cereal
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
Mix remaining ingredients in a separate bowl. While the mixer is running, add dry ingredients a little at a time. Mix until well combined.
Place on parchment or silicone baking mat on a cookie sheet in rounded teaspoons with about 2 inches between them. Press with a fork.
Bake for 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
