3 Ingredients, An Oven, and 10 Minutes

Yes that is all it takes to make a delicious healthy snack for yourself. The hardest part of this recipe is making sure that you have very ripe bananas in the house. Writing this made me crave one so I had to take a break between these sentences to go get myself another cookie. Totally worth it!

Banana, Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Cookies


2 very ripe bananas
1 1/2 cup of oats
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon honey (optional)



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mash the bananas well.
  3. Add in the oats and mix well.
  4. Add in two thirds of the chocolate chips and mix more.
  5. To bake, you have some options. Either grease or line a baking tray with parchment paper. Use a spoon to scoop small portions onto the tray and flatten them to create cookie shapes. The other choice is to grease and spread the mix into a baking pan and cut it into squares after baking. Cookies are more crispy than the squares.
  6. Stick the rest of the chocolate chips on top, spread evenly.
  7. Bake for 10-15 minutes till the oatmeal is crisp to the touch (there will not be a lot of the gold brown baking effect here).
  8. Cool and refrigerate to save for later because of the ripe bananas. When you want to eat, just take out and microwave for a few seconds because I just think it tastes better that way.

Simple as that! I was so happy I made these yesterday. If it wasn’t for that, I would not have had a breakfast ready to go on the run to a meeting this morning. It really makes a world of a difference to prepare the night before for an easier, more successful tomorrow.

    1. Why do you need to avoid oats? I started eating oats more myself because I had to avoid other things when I started eating gluten free due to “spontaneous” allergic reactions.
