Banana and peanut butter magic

Banana + Oatmeal + Peanut Butter = Amazing Cookies!

Banana is one of the best thing for healthy baking recipes as it can substitute both butter and sugar, two fatty things we usually wish to minimize without affecting the flavor. So, here is another delicious cookie recipe. As I said, it has very less butter and sugar. I have also added crunchy peanut butter to give it an added savory peanut taste.
