I felt like baking cookies today… and I had peanut butter on my mind. 😉 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.
Peanut butter banana oatmeal cookies
- 2 ripe mashed bananas
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 t vanilla extract
- 1/2 t cinnamon
- 1 2/3 cup oats
- 2 T mini reese pieces peanut butter chips will work too
- Preheat oven to 350F
- Mash up your bananas and ad the peanut butter, mix well.
- Add the applesauce, vanilla and cinnamon and continue mixing. Stir in the oats.
- Drop by spoonful onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.
- Top with mini reese pieces and bake for approx. 20 minutes.
- Let cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a plate. Store in fridge in a air tight container for best results, 1 cookie is 1pp. 🙂
Tried this recipe?Let us know how it was!
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
What type of oats did you use. Quick oats?
I don’t have applesauce…can I use a substitute?
You can use extra banana
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 🙂
Haha, just saw this after replying 🙂
How many does this make?
Never mind – found it ????
Glad you found it, enjoy the cookies 🙂
Could you give me the nutritional information. I am using my fitness pal and would like to know the nutritional information.
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. 🙂
Thanks Jessica 🙂 Some of these older recipes I forget about 🙁
Omg no problem 🙂 thank you for sharing! We are making these this week, they look delicious!
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.
Nice! thanks for the info 🙂
I just put this into the recipe builder as is except for amount of 24 cookies. Only 1 freestyle point. Yay
That is awesome, thanks for the tip 🙂
Hi I can’t have peanut butter could I add honey or sryup.
Sure, you can try.. not sure they will be exactly the same but it is worth a shot 🙂

Can I substitute the peanut butter for pb2? Also couldn’t find mini Reese’s so I bought regular size peanut butter chips and bought mini m&M’s, which would be better to fit into point wise? Last question lol but if I use pb2 does that lessen the points to 1sp?
Hi Kristin, I have never used PB2, I know a lot do though and I think it works fine as a substitute, I can’t confirm the points as again I don’t use it, maybe try building the recipe on the WW recipe builder? I would think the chips and M&M are similar is points, maybe chop up the reg size chips and use those?
What do you mean by t? Tablespoon or teaspoon?
Also, do you know the points on the new Freestyle program?
Hi Ashley, these would be the same on freestyle, we still use smart points for freestyle, and only recipes with the new zero point foods changed in points, and t is tsp T is tbsp
I joined weight watchers but I don’t understand what you mean when you say recipe builder! Could someone help me and explain?
HI Cassie, when you go into your WW app, press the + then “my foods” then “recipes” then “create” this will now allow you to build a recipe, you will enter how many servings it makes and all your ingredients, then it will figure out the points per serving for you and you can save it

I made these tonight, and my hubby and I both are that they are terrible. I used natural peanut butter, and steel cut oats. The we’re like eating drywall. Did I do something wrong?
Hi Angela, these cookies are definitely not for everyone, with only a few ingredients there really is nothing you could do wrong so to speak, they just might not be what you were expecting .. The texture is not really cookie like but they are a good alternative snack for those that enjoy them, sorry you did not
HI! I love your recipes:) I just came across this one and will be making it as soon as I have some ripe bananas! I was wondering if these would freeze well?
Hi Gail, yes they should freeze fine, happy baking 🙂

Just wondering if you have the freestlye points for this one? Thanks
Hi they will be the same as old smart points, nothing in them is a zero food so there was no changes 🙂
I added 1 1/2 teaspoons of Stevia because they weren’t sweet enough for me. Does that affect the point value?
Hi Dolores, no I don’t think that will change the point value overall
