Banana and Oat Cookies
Banana Oatmeal Cookies are naturally sweetened and easy to prepare. With only two base ingredients and a variety of ways to customise, you can make a version to suit every family member!
- 2 Large ripe bananas *NOTE 1
- 165g (1¾ cup) Quick oats *NOTE 2 & 3
Optional Add ins
- ½ cup add in (e.g choc chips, raisins, chopped nuts)
Pre-heat oven to 350F / 180C/ 160C (Fan) and line a baking tray/sheet with baking/parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl mash the bananas really well, until smooth. Add the oats and mix until fully combined.
Add in any additions to suit taste *NOTE 3
Take about 1 ½ tablespoons of the mixture in your hand, roll it into a ball and then flatten it into a disc shape. Place on the baking tray and repeat until the mixture is used up. (The cookies do not spread during baking so take this into consideration when forming cookies)
Bake for approx 15 mins, or until cookies are golden and set.
Allow to cool before eating.

- The riper your bananas the sweeter your cookie will be.
- You can use rolled oats, quick oats or oat flour. Quick oats produce the best results. Depending on the banana size, you may find you need more or less oats. Your mixture should be able to be scooped and easily form into cookies.
- Add a range of additional mix ins to change the flavour profile (e.g spices, lime/ orange zest, choc chips (a favourite), dried fruit etc. See post for a detailed list of suggestions and flavour combinations.)
