Winston’s Winter Cookies.

It is holiday season which means it is also baking season! For the first time ever, I was able to get a head start on my holiday baking this year – this never happens!

While I was hustling around in the kitchen and having a mini dance party for 1, I almost tripped and fell over poor little Pug who was waiting at my feet for something to fall. He is a great little vacuum cleaner! It occurred to me at this point that while I was making all these baked goods for family and friends – Winston is family also and deserves a little something for the holiday season also! (Have you realized I am a crazy Pug lady yet?)

These peanut butter balls are made with 3 simple ingredients that you probably already have at home and require very minimal effort and no baking at all!

peanut butter balls

Here is what you will need:

1 ripe banana

3 tablespoons of smooth peanut butter

1 1/2 cup of oats

Here is what you will need to do:

In a medium sized bowl mash up the banana and combine with peanut butter and oats. (I don’t have one anymore but if you have a mixer, now is a good time to use it)

Scoop out about a teaspoon at a time and roll into little ball by hand

Roll the ball over extra oats for a little coating if you’d like.

I did toss mine in the oven at 350 for a couple minutes to help keep their shape but that part is optional

How easy is that!? Don’t forget to show your 4 legged babies some love this holiday season!

XOXO.
