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!

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Mix mashed bananas, milk, egg, honey, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Stir in oats, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.

  • Spoon batter into mounds on the baking sheet, spacing them a few inches apart.

  • 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.

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. Will definitely make again. Read More

If you have a sweet tooth at all, these cookies will not satisfy. Even though I added extra oats, cinnamon and vanilla, and chocolate chips, they were VERY bland. The texture and consistency were off as well. I think from now on I’ll just make cookies the way they were meant to be made (with flour, sugar, and butter) and limit myself to ONE a day. Read More

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 granulated sugar. Read More

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! Read More

Just took out of the oven and they are so good. I did add about 1/2 cup more oats and about 2 tablespoons of coconut flour as the batter was a bit thin. Also some nuts and more cinnamon. Let it sit a few minutes. Really good. Read More

Good healthy recipe, but definitely add raisins or chocolate chips because they are very bland if you just make them plain. Also, I had to add an extra half cup of oats to my cookies because the dough was too soft to be formed into little balls. Read More

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. Read More
