  • 2 bananas ripe, mashed
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine the bananas, oats, peanut butter and chocolate chips (if using). Stir until combined.
  • Drop 1-inch balls of dough onto prepared baking sheet. Press down slightly on each ball of dough. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Let cool.


For a little crunch in your cookies, instead of creamy peanut butter, substitute in crunchy peanut butter.
For a little healthier cookie, substitute natural peanut butter or almond butter.
A teaspoon of vanilla extract would be delicious
