Yummy Bastards – Peanut Butter, Banana & Oatmeal Cookies

January 28, 2010

My ice day fantasy involves lots of baking – so imagine my disappointment when the grocery store, this morning, had not a single egg in sight.

I began an online hunt for eggless cookies and stopped my search here. There were a few things I didn’t have (like maple syrup) and a few things I wanted to add (like oatmeal and banana) – this is the first time I’ve experimented with a baking recipe.



We’re enjoying these with coffee right now. Oh, and Jeremy dubbed them Yummy Bastards.

Yummy Bastards – Peanut Butter, Banana & Oatmeal Cookies
Note: This recipe is vegan.

Dry ingredients:
1 c. local stone ground whole wheat flour
1 c. organic unbleached all purpose flour
1 c. oatmeal
1 teaspoon aluminum free baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt

Not-so-dry ingredients:
1 c. local chunky peanut butter
1/3 c. olive oil
1/2 c. agave nectar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 mashed up banana (this acts as an egg substitute – Jeremy thinks you could probably even use 2 for more moisture and stickiness)

Preheat your oven to 350F. Mix up your dry ingredients in one bowl and your not-so-dry ingredients in another. Dump the dry ingredients on top of the not-so-dry ones and mix until just dusty with the flour mix. Scoop spoonfuls onto a cookie pan lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 10 minutes – you don’t want to go too long or they’ll get too dry.
