And, guess what? They’re made with Nutribuddy powder and a handful of other nutritious, vitamin-packed ingredients. Yes, girls, that’s right - irresistible, sweet and healthy vegan peanut butter cookies! You can’t go wrong with that, can you? Let’s get started!

Nana's Not-So-Sinful Peanut Butter Cookies

Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 20 minutes | Makes: 10 | Vegan

INGREDIENTS

- 2 ripe bananas
- 80g Nutribuddy Breakfast Shake (any flavour)
- 4 tablespoons oats
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter (you could also use almond or cashew butter - just look for one without added sugar)
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil

METHOD

  1. Before we start, preheat the oven to 180°.
  2. Peel the bananas and pop them into a mixing bowl. Mash them up well using a fork until they’re completely smooth.
  3. Add the coconut oil and nut butter of your choice to the bowl and mix well until combined.
  4. Here comes the good stuff - time to add in your Nutribuddy Breakfast Shake! Mix it in well until it’s completely combined. It should be a sticky consistency.
  5. Add the oats and mix some more (all this mixing will be worth it - we promise!).
  6. Find a baking tray and line it with baking powder. Using your hands or a spoon, lay the mixture into flat cookie shapes on the tray. It should make around 10 medium-sized cookies - but you could make bite-sized ones if you prefer!
  7. Pop your creation into the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until golden.
  8. Leave them to cool for a little (if you can resist, that is) and enjoy!
