Only 5 Ingredients Banana Bread Protein Cookies

Can't go wrong with these yummy cookies!
Want something light and sweet dessert or snack but do not feel like investing extra time making these?  I've got a quick recipe for you to make in a jiffy!  Only 5, F I V E, ingredients!  And only 10 minutes to bake these!  They taste just like banana bread only they're cookies!  Super moist and heavenly delicious!  Not exactly Paleo, but they're Primal since they got Casein in these.  

Whey Vs. Casein link below.  (We have both sugar free and gluten free whey protein isolate and casein.  Casein is more thicker and dense so I used this to make banana bread cookies. I personally prefer Whey Protein Isolate to drink, they are fast digesting protein than casein which is slow digesting protein, best taken at bedtime)

Only 5 Ingredients Banana Bread Protein Cookies Recipe

What you need:
~1-1/2 cup rolled oats (do not grind or make flour out of this one)
~2 scoops of Vanilla Casein powder (gluten free and sugar free)
~1 tsp Baking Powder (gluten free)
~1 Egg, beaten
~2 very very ripe Bananas, mashed

Preheat the oven at 350 degrees.  Place parchment paper or silpat in cookie sheet pan.  In a mixing bowl, mash your 2 bananas and then add in egg and mix well.  Add the rest of dry ingredients above. Mix well with fork until well incorporated.  Drop cookie dough at a time onto the prepared cookie sheet.  Cookies should be about 1-2 inches apart. Use your 2 fingers to lightly press down the cookie dough to make it a little flat (see picture above). Bake for 10 minutes.  After baked, let these cool for 10-15 minutes so they'll set.  Enjoy!!!

The only 5 ingredients you need!
After completely cooled down, place these in an air tight container so they stay super moist!
