Extra Ingredient Options (add 1 or all!)

  • Mash bananas until they are almost a puree.
  • Add in remaining ingrediets and mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Using a medium scoop or tablesppon measure and scoop your cookies on to parchment lined baking sheet. They will not spread so you do not need to worry about how you space them on pan.

  • Cool for 5 minutes before eating.
  • Store in an airtight container for 1-2 days or freeze.


  1. 1 Banana was not quite enough to hold the oats together well, but it did work if you only have 1.  2 Bananas yielded a very sweet cookie which my children loved.  1.5 bananas is probably perfect.  
  2. These can be frozen for up to 3 months.
