  • 2 Ripe bananas *NOTE 1
  • 165g 1 ¾ cup Oats *NOTE 2 & 3


  • Pre heat oven to 180C / 350F / Gas Mark 4 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 4
  • Form tablespoon sized cookies and place on prepared baking tray. (make sure to form cookie shapes and not balls as these will not spread into shape like normal cookies)
  • Bake for approx 15 mins, or until cookies are golden and set. 
  • Allow to cool before eating. 


  1. The riper your bananas the sweeter your cookie will be.
  2. You can use rolled oats, quick oats or oat flour. I rarely buy quick oats but I usually blitz rolled oats in a blender for a couple of seconds to break them down a bit.
  3. You need roughly 165g of oats to two large bananas. This roughly equates to 1 ¾  cups rolled oats or 1 ½ cups quick oats /oat flour.
  4. Add a range of additional ingredient to change the flavour profile (e.g spices, lime/ orange zest, choc chips, dried fruit etc. See post for a detailed list of suggestions and flavour combinations.) 
  5. Store in an airtight container for 1-2 days or freeze.
