Ingredients You Will Need

Bananas

To make banana oat cookies, you will need bananas. This recipe calls for two bananas. Aside from binding and sweetening, bananas are equally nutritious and delicious. You may try substituting banana with applesauce (personally, I have yet to try that)!
It should work fine.

Oats/Oatmeal

Oat, aka oatmeal, is a whole grain and a good source of fiber! Oats are filling, nutritious, and contains many essential minerals. Oat provides an excellent texture to these cookies. There are different kinds of oats, such as steel cuts, whole oat groats, rolled / Old-fashioned oats, quick oats, etc. However, this recipe calls for rolled/old-fashioned oats!

Almond Flour

Almond flour is a type of flour made with raw, blanched almonds! Almonds are basically super fine ground almond nuts! You can easily make almond flour or simply get it from the grocery store. I always buy it from the store because it is easier that way. Ensure that the almond flour you buy has only almonds listed on the ingredients list. Additionally, almond flour is gluten-free and excellent for paleo-baking!

Raw Cacao

Raw cacao is a natural cocoa powder. It gives the cookies a rich, chocolatey color and flavor. Aside from the color and taste of the cacao powder, it has numerous benefits, such as reducing blood pressure and lowering the risk of a heart attack. Raw cacao can also improve brain function, among other things. Cacao/cocoa makes you happy; hello, it’s chocolateactually, the better chocolate. It helps with mood improvement and can calm the senses. Please sign me up!

Nut Butter

Nut butter is the butter from nuts! There are several types of nut butter; I used peanut butter. Ensure to use natural peanut butter. Feel free to use any nut butter of your choice! Alongside almond flouroats, raw cacao, and bananas, these cookies contain nutritious plant-based ingredients. Amazingly, this dough is safe to consume raw, and you can get away without baking it!

To Bake or Eat Raw?

From my experience baking these helps the flavors to intensify. The baked aroma of oats, peanut butter, almond, cacao, coconut, banana are just insanely comforting! This is the before and after of the oven “process photo.” Honestly, you may not see the difference, but you will surely taste the difference. 😋 On the other hand, these cookies would make a perfect “no bake” cookies!

Oatmeal Cookies Deserve a Mate.

Do you dunk your cookies in milk, or do you simply eat them and have a juice or any other drink of choice? Typically, I enjoy these breakfast banana oat cookies by themselves. On the other hand, one of my wise kids would always prefer milk, and the other kid would opt for orange juice. Now I ask, what would you rather do?

Banana Oats Cookies FAQs

Are Oatmeal Cookies Healthier than Normal?

Cookies made with oats/oatmeal are definitely healthier than cookies made with regular white flour. Oatmeal is whole grain and gluten-free, and white flour isn’t! So, if you want healthier, guilt-free cookies, go with whole-grain flour!

Why Can’t You Use Instant Oats for Oatmeal Cookies?

Instant Oats are overly processed, just going by their name alone. On the other hand, rolled/old-fashioned oats are hearty, chewy, filling, and more nutritious. I highly recommend old-fashioned oats for these banana oat cookies! Old-fashioned oats bring out the perfect texture and flavor in this recipe!

What Ingredient Should You Add for Fluffier Cookies?

Baking soda or baking powder can help you get more fluffier cookies. Also, I think that bananas or apple sauce make my cookies a bit fluffy.

Ingredients

Scale

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor, add the banana, cacao powder, stevia, coconut sugar, vanilla extract, pulse until almost smooth. Then add the nut butter, and coconut oil pulse a couple of times. Add the almond flour, pulse to mix, then add the oats, salt, and baking soda pulse to combine with the rest of the ingredients. If you are using sliced almonds, and raisins add them at this time; pulse a couple of times to combine. You may need to use spatula to adjust dough as you mix/pulse.
  3. Use a tablespoon measure to scoop dough, flatten a bit with your hand and place on the already lined baking sheet. This is sticky dough; you may need to moisten your hands a bit for easy “molding.” Repeat until this step until all the dough is molded and placed on cookie sheet. This recipe makes about 18 – 20 cookies.
  4. Place on a 325 preheated oven; and bake for 17 – 21 minutes. Allow to cool, enjoy with a glass of milk or chilled orange juice or just by itself.

Notes

Though I used peanut butter for this recipe, any nut butter would work. I have used both peanut butter and almond butter. I rarely know the difference.

You can sub coconut sugar with 2 teaspoons or stevia or less.
