The easiest way to go from zero to freshly baked healthy cookies, using only 3 ingredients. If you like Bananas, Oats and Chocolate, these are a must-try.
When my “Pinterest mom” started making these Banana Cookies a few years ago, I wasn’t even a baker. She would hand me these hearty large cookies, loaded with nuts and dried fruit of all kinds and I would be like HOW? No butter, no sugar? HOW?
Recently when I had one sad ripe banana in the back of our fruit compartment I was reminded of those. I was too lazy to chop dried fruit though, but what are CHOCOLATE CHUNKS for amirite. I went from zero to 8 fresh out of the oven cookies in about 15 minutes.
Mash banana, fold in oats, shape, top with chocolate, bake 10 minutes.
I added some crunch to mine using walnuts but these are absolutely optional.
- 1 large ripe banana mashed (about 120 g)
- 1 cup rolled oats (80 g)
- (optional) 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- pinch of sea salt
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or other nuts/seeds* (30 g)
- 2 tbsp semisweet chocolate chips or chunks (28 g)
Makes 8 cookies. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a cookie sheet with parchment. Mash your banana, fold in all ingredients other than chocolate. Form balls of “dough” and flatten between your palms. Press down chocolate. Bake for 10 minutes. Let them cool for a few minutes and devour. These are BEST fresh out of the oven.
(*) Omit the nuts/seeds if you prefer but I like them with a little crunch!
