Healthy Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

I made these Healthy Peanut Butter Kisses this afternoon, a new recipe I created that would be both healthy yet satisfying for my husband Jeff!

My go to for beating boredom on cold winter afternoons is typically either 1. bundling for a walk or 2. baking  (after a workout of course!) and often times both! Unfortunately for Jeff , my choices on what to bake aren't always super healthy , because I know how much he loves a good chocolate chip cookie made with real butter and sugar! Which is fine, however I know he would appreciate something better for his waistline during these less active months. Today, I thought I would make use of some pantry ingredients I had on hand....Peanut butter and chocolate Hershey kisses I got on discount after Christmas! Here is what I came up with:

Ingredients:

  • 2 mashed ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup chucky natural peanut butter (I used Teddies)
  • 1 egg (can omit to make this vegan)
  • 1/4-1/3 cup agave or honey (or can use coconut sugar)
  • 2/3 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp. quick cook oats (can use GF oats too)
  • Chocolate Hershey Kisses for topping.
  1. preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mash bananas. Stir in peanut butter, egg and agave/honey until well combined.
  3. Add coconut flour and oats and mix well. 
  4. line baking sheet with parchment paper and roll dough out into tbsp. size balls. Bake for 10-11 min
  5. Once out of the oven, press a Hershey kiss onto the top of each cookie and let cool
