Peanut butter banana oatmeal cookies

December 15, 2014

I felt like baking cookies today… and I had peanut butter on my mind. πŸ˜‰ 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.

    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 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. πŸ™‚

    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.

    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?

      Reply Drizzle January 27, 2018 at 1:42 pm

      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?

      Reply Drizzle March 17, 2018 at 8:53 pm

      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

      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

    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
