Easy Cookie Recipe for Kids

The struggle to find fun things for the kids to do as well as healthy meals and snacks to make while the kids are out of school can really make my head spin. As a stay at home mom, I already struggle with this. There are times I just don’t feel very creative. Since they are little, my concern is often how big of a mess am I ready to clean up! When I’m already tired, the last thing I feel up to is scrubbing floors and giving multiple baths a day! (Of course, this is a totally different story when daddy is home!)

That’s where this cute little recipe comes in at! You see, not only are these cookies incredibly easy, but they’re also pretty healthy. Another great part about this recipe is that it’s perfect for the little people in your life to do by themselves (with just a little help)!

  1. I love these cookies…stumbled across the recipe on another blog. I just made them last week, but without the peanut butter. I love the addition of that and will try it next time. Definitely agree to use very ripe bananas. My kids (teens!) loved them. Fun to make with little ones!
