Clean Banana Oat Cookies

Rated as 3.95 out of 5 Stars

"Flour-free and sugar-free cookies naturally sweetened with bananas. You can have great cookies for breakfast or any time of the day without any guilt! A little bonus for me was that my 11-year-old brother loved these, even after they had been in the refrigerator!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix mashed bananas, milk, egg, honey, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Stir in oats, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Spoon batter into mounds on the baking sheet, spacing them a few inches apart.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until top looks dry and edges are golden, about 15 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can grind the oats into flour if you prefer.
  • If batter is too runny, add more oats.
  • Optional additions or toppings: raisins, nuts, coconut flakes, peanut butter (can soften by microwaving first), or a drizzle of honey.

As noted by other reviews, these cookies came out very watery so I added more oats as suggested. They are a very soft, chewy cookie even after adding the additional oats. No one in my house li...

I liked these. Yes, I had to add about another 1/2 cup of oats which just yielded more cookies, but there's nothing wrong with that. I added dried cranberries. I thought they were delicious. Wil...

Very nice-tasting cookies. I added a few tablespoons of Carbquik to thicken them a bit and more vanilla, just according to my taste. The 2 bananas and honey give enough sweetness without adding ...

This is a great healthy recipe. I did add some chocolate chips. The only problem I had had was that it was too liquidy so I doubled everything but the milk and eggs and it worked out great.

Made recipe exactly as stated. Excellent cookies, clean tasting too. This one is a keeper for sure.

Followed as written. I left the batter sit for 15 minutes to allow the oatmeal to absorb moisture, after reading reviews. Good cookie for me, but 3 littles didn’t like the the softness. Darn!

I agree that batter was too runny. I also added extra oats. I also felt the cooking time was too short. I did add some mini chocolate chips and chopped walnuts. Its a good flour free recipe.

These are good. I added some peanut butter. The batter is thin but they firmed up in the oven. They are lighter than some other healthy oatmeal cookies I've tried.

I loved it! I also added about 1/2 cup oats and some chocolate chips. I was (pleasantly) surprised about the cakey texture of the cookies. Thanks for the recipe!
