  • 2/3 cup peanut butter I used natural crunchy peanut butter. Cashew, SunButter, and Almond butter are options too.

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350 and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or use silicone liners.
  • Mix mashed bananas, peanut butter, and vanilla in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in oats, coconut, flour, and chocolate chips. Combine well.
