Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oh bananas, how I love you. Bananas are probably one of my favorite fruits to bake with because they are a perfect natural sweetener and can act as an egg or oil substitute. Just check out any of my banana bread recipes to see for yourself. Some of my favorites are my Chocolate Chip Raspberry Banana Bread and Double Chocolate Banana Bread. I literally have around 10 different banana bread flavors if you’re ever feeling bored of the plain stuff. 

BUT, if you’re here, banana bread is probably the last thing you want to make, because you want to make cookies! YAY! Well, let me tell you, these healthy banana cookies are the perfect recipe to use up those ripe bananas. And they’re even easier to make than banana bread! 

Chewy Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Let’s talk cookies. There are some cookies that are actually desserts like my Chocolate Chip Cherry Cookies or my Smore’s cookies and some cookies that you can eat for breakfast, snacks or dessert! With intuitive eating, I believe cookies can be enjoyed any time of the day though (*cough cough* My Smart Sweet Tooth Program) … I guess what I’m trying to say is that some cookies are a bit more nutritious than others. These banana cookies are just that! Nutritious! And delicious! Oh, and did I mention how easy they are to make too?

Ingredients For Healthy Banana Oatmeal Cookies

You only need 6 main ingredients for these banana cookies. The chocolate chips are totally optional and so is the peanut butter. It depends on what kind of cookie you’re going for. If you want a little more healthy fats and protein, go ahead and add that peanut butter. If you want to add in some raisins or nuts instead of the chocolate chips, be my guest! These banana cookies are super versatile and that’s what I love about them.

  • Speckled Bananas (the riper the better!)
  • Oat Flour (make your own in these simple steps)
  • Rolled Oats (can sub quick cooking oats)
  • Pure Maple Syrup
  • Cinnamon (or to taste)
  • Pinch Pink Himalayan Salt
  • Optional: Dark Chocolate Chips
  • Optional: ⅓ Cup + 3 Tbs Peanut Butter (just peanuts and salt. This is my favorite brand. Use code “shh20” for free shipping!)
