Peanut butter banana oatmeal cookies

December 15, 2014

I felt like baking cookies today… and I had peanut butter on my mind. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Most of you may be familiar with the 2 ingredient cookies (banana & oats) well these are similar but so much better! At only 1 point each they definitely are a guilt free treat, and can also work for a quick grab and go breakfast when there is no time in the morning to make anything. Just a few ingredients and a little of your time and you will have these whipped up in no time.

    How many smart points would these be without the Reese pieces?

      Hi, my guess would be 2sp each.. I will try and change it soon, there are still a few recipes lingering that I have not gotten to yet

    Ok..” I’m just a tad bit confused… Also new to WW.. lol
    But in your recipe you said 1 point per cookie..
    But when someone asked what points would be without Reece’s Pieces, you said 2.. ??

      Hi Jody, I have few older recipes I have not updated yet to smart points, I keep meaning to go back to them but the time gets the better of me.. these are 1 point plus each (old WW program) so for smart points I think they will be 2 each

    I think I’ve figured it out… lol
    Points plus points
    Smart Points ๐Ÿ™‚

      Sorry this is an older recipe, before I started working out the nutritional numbers so I don’t currently have them

      I just did the math on everything

      each cookie comes to 44.9 calories, 3.4 carbs (1.9 sugar), 1.2 protein, 1.7 fat

      total for the bach is: 1259 calories, 96 carbs (54g sugar), 35.6g protein, 48g fat

      Hope this helps. Looking to add a scoop of snicker doodle protein powder. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I put the ingredients into the WW recipe builder and they are 1 SP each, instead of the candies pieces I added sugar free chocolate chips and used old fashion oats, not quick.
