How to Make the Best Oatmeal Cookies

Step 1: Whipping Up the Dough

Start by mashing those ripe bananas in a mixing bowl. Use a fork to work them into a smooth and creamy consistency. Now, introduce the rest of the star players: oats, the cocoa, a spoonful of peanut butter, and the baking powder. Give it all a whirl until you’ve got yourself a sticky dough.

Step 2: Sculpting the cookies

Preheat your oven to 340°F (convection), and get a baking sheet dressed up with parchment paper. Grab your dough and scoop out portions, about 2 tablespoons each. Mold them into roughly 8 cookie-shaped cookies.

Step 3: Into the Oven

Place them with care on your prepared baking sheet. Slide that sheet into your preheated oven. Bake them at 340°F (convection) for about 15 minutes, or until they achieve that irresistible golden-brown hue and feel firm to the touch.

Step 4: Ready to eat! As they emerge from the oven, let your cookies cool on a wire rack for just a few moments. Now it’s time for the best part – enjoy them!
