1 1/2 cup rolled oats (gluten free, if needed)
¼ cup chocolate chips (optional)
Almond butter (optional)
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Place peeled bananas in a food processor and process until smooth.
3. Put in two scoops of Nuzest Clean Lean Protein and process until combined.
4. Toss in oats and pulse only until incorporated.
5. Scoop ⅓ cup batter into rounds on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
6. Bake for 8-10 minutes (until you see light browning on the edges).
7. Remove the cookies from the oven. Place 4 chocolate chips on top of each cookie, if using. Allow a few minutes for chips to melt.
8. Devour. These pair great with a cup of cold almond milk.
