Yield: 12 cookies Time: 30-35 minutes

Banana Oat Cookies

  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 1/3 cup non-dairy or dairy butter, melted (or coconut oil)
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cup rolled or old-fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup allergen-friendly chocolate chips
  • 4 Tbs unsweetened dried coconut flakes


  1. Begin by preheating the oven to 350ºF and lining two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, brown sugar, and banana. Mash together and mix well.
  3. Then, add in the cinnamon, salt, vanilla, and baking soda. Stir together until well combined.
  4. Next, mix in the flour gradually.
  5. Finally, add in the oats. The batter should form together fairly tightly and will be slightly sticky.
  6. Fold in the chocolate chips and coconut flakes.
  7. Using clean, slightly wet hands, roll out the dough into 12 equal-sized cookies, flattening them with your hands.
  8. Place the cookies in the oven and bake for 12-14 minutes or until lightly golden.
  9. Allow cookies to cool before enjoying.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
