Banana Oatmeal Cookies

These soft and delicious Oatmeal cookies are made naturally sweet with bananas and use minimal and simple ingredients! They are versatile and can include many mix-ins such as chia seeds, flax seeds, coconut and of course chocolate chips! Kids love these healthy cookies too - they don't last long in my house!

Makes 10 medium sized cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup ripe mashed banana (approx 2 bananas)
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tbsp nuts of choice (I put walnuts in mine)
  • 2-3 tbsp chocolate chips
  • Other mix in options: chia seeds, flax seeds, dried fruit

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mash the banana with a fork. Next mix in the almond butter and stir to combine before adding the other ingredients.
  3. Stir in the oats, vanilla, salt and choice of mix-ins.
  4. Scoop out about 2 tbsp worth of dough and place on a baking sheet leaving space in between the cookies.
  5. Bake in the oven for around 15 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before enjoying!
