Healthy Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Healthy Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are one of my favorites of all time. This recipe came to be after noticing that both my husband and I bought too many bananas at the same time. They were getting really ripe and wanted to try something other than another banana bread. I also had too many boxes of oatmeal in my pantry so this is what I came up with.  They are really, really good! FYI, they are gluten free and vegan too.

Just a suggestion… They make a great grab and go breakfast or snack and freeze well. I wrap each one individual in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag.

Healthy Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 24 nice size cookies

Healthy Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium to large ripe bananas
  • 2 cups oats, not instant
  • 3/4 cup dates, cut up to small pieces
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil plus 1 teaspoon (I used grapeseed but any mild oil is fine. I wouldn’t use olive oil in this recipe.)
  • 1 -2 packets all natural Stevia or 1- 2 tsp coconut or date sugar, or leave out all together.
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup vegan mini chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 360 degrees, that’s right, not 350. It makes a difference. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mash the bananas until most clumps are out and looks pretty smooth. Add the oatmeal and let sit for a minute or two.
  3. Now add the rest of the ingredients except the chips and Stevia. Check for sweetness first. Add one packet at a time until you have the desired sweetness and taste.
  4. Fold in the chips and place in fridge for about 20 minutes.
  5. Take out of fridge and with a small scooper make 24 mounds. Press down a little with wet fingers to flatten.
  6. Bake for about 20- 25 minutes or until cookies are brown on the bottom and around the edges and look somewhat crispy around the edges. Take out and cool on a wire rack. Enjoy this healthy, yummy treat anytime of day.
