Banana oatmeal cookie recipe ingredients
To make these cookies, you only need ripe bananas, rolled or quick oats, and regular or miniature chocolate chips.
This recipe allows for many different variations. Add a handful of coconut flakes, chopped walnuts, or chocolate chips instead of raisins.
The oatmeal banana cookies taste great with a teaspoon of pure vanilla or almond extract and a fourth teaspoon of cinnamon.
Peanut butter, bananas, and dark chocolate are my favorite combinations.
Add a pinch of optional salt to the oatmeal-banana cookie dough. This will enhance the flavor and bring out the sweetness of these healthy cookies.
The banana can be substituted with canned pumpkin, unsweetened applesauce, or steel-cut oats.
How to make banana oatmeal cookie
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit if you are baking cookies.
Mash the bananas in a large bowl with a fork. Stir in the optional ingredients and oats to make an oatmeal cookie dough.
The batter should be refrigerated until it is firm enough to be scooped using a spoon or cookie scoop.
To make banana cookies that don’t need to be baked, freeze them until they are hard. For baked cookies, you can place the cookie dough balls unbaked on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake them on the center rack of the oven for 20 minutes.
For maximum freshness, store leftover banana-oat cookies in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer. The cookies should be tbe kept in the refrigerator for four to five days or frozen for for three months. Thaw the frozen food before serving.
