These healthy chunky monkey oat cookies combine bananas, peanut butter, and chocolate chips into one incredible cookie. I love recipes like this, where you just mix everything up in one bowl and in 15 minutes start to finish you have a healthy and delicious treat. 

These chunky monkey contain carbohydrates from the oat flour, healthy fat +protein from the peanut butter, and nutrients from the bananas. Healthier then most breakfast cereal!
