Back by popular demand: The EASIEST cookies you’ll ever make.
Plus they are SO good… 1 step, 5 ingredients. Got an oven? A fork and a mixing bowl? Get. On. This.
Also, they ARE healthy, and even “healthier” with a higher nutrition value if you keep the chocolate chips out of the equation and use nuts instead! Nuts = healthy fats+ protein. Plus no flour and no sugar, so I highly recommend the substitution.
I personally like to call these fiber cookies…because OATMEAL, which is an amazing grain! Plus bananas….overripe bananas make for the best cookies! You know, when they get brown and looking like they are past their prime? Yep, that’s the best time. That IS Their prime!
This is what you do.
OATMEAL BANANA CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
- 2- 3 overripe bananas
- 2 cups of oatmeal
- 1/3 cup of any oil (I used grapeseed oil for this one)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup of chopped pecans, walnuts, or if you need a fix – mini chocolate chips (dark, milk, white or a mix!)
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Prepare cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Mash bananas to a smooth consistency with a fork.
- Add all other ingredients and mix well with a wooden spoon.
- Divide and conquer cookies – It should give you about 12 servings.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes for soft consistency. You may leave them in a little longer if you like them crunchier.

Enjoy the deliciousness!
