Healthy Banana Oat Cookie Recipe

One of my favorite quick and easy desserts to bring to social gathering’s is my healthy banana oat cookie recipe. This recipe came my way from a co-worker after she brought these Delicious treats to celebrate my birthday at work this year. The beauty of this dessert is it is not really a dessert at all. It can be a quick grab and go snack or even a breakfast staple. It does not require a lot of ingredients and is simple and easy to make. I have made a few modifications to the recipe which I have listed below. Usually I find people cannot stop with just one. In fact I had a group of 3 men eat an entire 2 dozen in 15 minutes. Enjoy!



3 ripe bananas

2 cups rolled oats

1 cup dates, pitted and chopped (I substituted chocolate chips, but you can also use coconut, or nuts.)

1/3 cup vegetable oil (I substituted this for unsweetened apple sauce! These cookies still taste amazing and It also saves on calories)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


I added in one tsp of cinnamon

You can also use 1 Tbsp of honey or 1 tbsp of cocoa powder


Pre-heat Oven to 350 degree’s F

In a large bowl mash the banana’s, stir in oats, oil or applesauce, dates (or whatever you chose), and vanilla

Mix well and allow to sit for 15 minutes

Once ready drop about a teaspoon size amount onto a greased cookie sheet

Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown
