Vegan Banana Walnut Protein Cookies

October 23, 2017
Every week I like to make a healthy snack to take with me into the week. I recently made this Banana Walnut Protein Cookies on a family road-trip to Indiana. They kept that traveller's hunger away and were a nice break from raw-bars for snacking! They come together quickly with only 4 ingredients, and are naturally sweetened with smashed banana. I used walnut butter to make mine, but if you don't have walnut butter sub any nut butter of choice to yield the same results. IF you're not a fan of protein powder, sub the protein powder for oat flour or more almond meal. I like to enjoy mine with a big glass of almond milk and a drizzle of peanut butter on top. Enjoy these Banana Walnut Protein Cookies as a quick breakfast, snack, or dessert!
