The last week has been full of Spring break fun! We’ve visited 10 states, two zoos, a chocolate factory and so much more (we’ll share more of our adventures later this week) but one of the things we did that the kids enjoyed the most was making cookies. My daughter is getting older and really starting to take an interest in cooking and it’s definitely something I want to foster, so when she asked if we could make cookies last week, how could I say no?
We rolled out to Walmart to pick up some ingredients. We decided to try a new twist on a classic cookie, a no-bake peanut butter oatmeal cookie, and spice it up with a new product Walmart is carrying called Sir Bananas™ Bananamilk. Sir Bananas™ Bananamilk has all of the goodness of milk with the delicious flavor of bananas. It’s full of calcium, protein an potassium and since peanut butter and bananas are a pair made in Heaven, how could we go wrong?
Believe it or not, the only added sugar in this recipe is in glaze. The cookies themselves are sweetened with honey, making them a treat you can feel good about enjoying from time to time, and they pair perfectly with the creamy goodness of Sir Bananas™ Bananamilk. The honey does makes them a bit sticky to work with, so have your hand washing station ready! You’ll want warm water and a good soap to clean yourself up with after forming your cookies.
You can add as little or as much glaze as you like, but I recommend going light and enjoying a glass of protein packed Sir Bananas™ Bananamilk with your cookies. The Bananamilk is so flavorful that the glaze carries an amazing banana flavor and a little goes a long way!
- 1 Cup Rolled Oats
- 1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
- 1/3 Cup Honey

- Using the back of a spoon, flatten the ball into a round cookie.
- Repeat with remaining oat mixture.
- In another bowl, combine the powdered sugar and Sir Bananas™ Bananamilk – 2% milk with Bananas, adding 2 tablespoons of the Bananamilk at a time, until the glaze (icing) is your desired thickness.
- Drizzle glaze over the flattened cookies.
- Place cookies in the freezer for 1 hour or until set.
You can find Sir Bananas™ Bananamilk – 2% milk with Bananas and Chocolate Bananamilk – 2% milk with Bananas & Chocolate at your local Walmart. It’s rich, creamy and full of 8 essential nutrients! My kids loved drinking it alone, using it in their cereal and enjoying it in our cookie recipe. With no artificial flavors or colors, I can feel good about letting them enjoy it any way they like!
