  • 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.


  • Replace creamy peanut butter with crunchy for an added crunch in your cookies.
  • For an even healthier cookie, use natural healthy peanut butter or almond butter.
  • A teaspoon of vanilla extract would be a delicious addition.
  • Use old-fashioned oats as opposed to quick-cooking oats.
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt would add immensely to the flavor, as well!
  • A tablespoon or two of maple syrup would add an extra unique flavor.
  • A few tablespoons of brown sugar would provide extra sweetness and be extra satisfying for your sweet tooth.
  • These cookies are gluten free, but be sure to read the label on your oats to make sure they were not packaged in a facility that contains wheat.
