Chocolate Banana Oat Cookies


My kids love bananas but sometimes they do not eat them fast enough when I buy them and they wind up getting ripe quick. I am not one to just throw them away so I try to incorporate them in a recipe. I took a few different recipes I found on-line and doctored them up a bit forming something new. This recipe has NO FLOUR OR SUGAR! These are great for vegans too because there is NO dairy either!

Chocolate Banana Oat Cookies
Write a review
  1. 2 bananas (ripe)
  2. 1⁄4 cup peanut butter
  3. 1⁄3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  4. 1⁄3 cup honey
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  6. 2 cups oatmeal
  1. Mash up the ripe bananas using the back of a fork until completely smash up and there are no lumps. Add in the peanut butter, vanilla, oatmeal, honey, cocoa and mix well. Place a dollop on the cookie sheet and bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes.
  1. I find the silicone sheets best to bake on (no sprays or oils needed) plus it makes for an easier clean up!

My 6 year old daughter helped me make these. They were so easy to make, she could practically make them by herself minus the baking part.  Looking for more banana recipes? Here are a few more I have made for my family: Fondue Chocolate Dipped Banana Frozen Pops Peanut Butter Banana Pinwheels  Banana Vanilla French Toast Banana Chocolate Bread

  1. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    Those sound like some pretty awesome cookies! My kids would love those.

  2. I have made something similar to these but without the bananas. I’m going to try it your way next time

  3. Peanut butter AND cocoa in it? I’d be so into this – care to make a batch for us?

  4. These look delicious. I love chocolate and banana combinations, I’ve never seen it in a cookie recipe before.

  5. Yum! I’ve actually made these a few times. They are delicious. I love bananas and love using them in recipes. So good!

  6. Awesome recipe! I’m expecting and on a low sugar diet, these will be perfect!! I love that they’re made with whole ingredients. I wonder if I could use molasses? Worth a try right?!

  7. Whenever we have bananas that have gone past their life, I freeze them and bake with them later. This is a great recipe I can save for the next time I bake with my over ripe bananas!

    • I do the same Lisa, when they start to get too ripe I freezer then for later to make banana bread with them.

  8. There are so many great things to make with aging fruits and veggies. Looks like you’ve got a great recipe!

  9. Another great way to use leftover end of the week bananas! I normally make bread so this will be a nice change up.

  10. These would get eaten up in mere seconds at my house! We always have bananas on hand and sometimes they start to turn and the kids won’t touch them. This is a great way to use up those unsightly, but still good bananas!

  11. These sound really amazing. I am not a big banana fan…unless it is in a cookine or bread. Thanks for sharing.

  12. I have never thought to make cookies from bananas but will definitely give it a try. Your recipe looks easy to follow and the cookies delicious.

  13. These sound fantastic! Sometimes we eat bananas like crazy, and other times they get way too ripe before we think about eating them. I’ll definitely give these a try. We like making chocolate banana bread with our over-ripe bananas!

  14. These look yummy. We usually make banana bread with ours :D.

  15. I like that this has all healthy ingredients. I love the combo of banana and chocolate together.

  16. Sounds delicious. I love that you included your daughter in this!

  17. These look super yummy, I am a big fan of chocolate and bananas! I would love to try this out, it looks very easy to make.

  18. Now these look fun to make! I am glad you can get the kids involved to make these!

  19. Oh my thee look delicious. I love the combo of bananas and chocolate

  20. What a fun recipe idea! We’ve been eating a lot of bananas here too and some time they do get ripe pretty quickly! Will have to save this recipe so that I can make it with my son! I’m sure he will love it!

  21. WOW!! Those are so easy to make and I love that your kids help you in the kitchen.

  22. These just sound perfect. I love delicious desserts with simple ingredients. I should really whip some up!

  23. I was looking for Baking Recipes with oatmeal and I think this would be perfect. The texture is quite interesting and I would have to blend mine to make it more refined

  24. Oh these look so good. My hubby loves bananas in his desserts, I’ll have to try and make these for him.

  25. I love these cookies. They remind me of my mother – she always makes them at the holidays

  26. These look really good. I love bananas so I have plenty lying around to be used.

  27. This is something I would love. I love oatmeal and all of the other flavors involved and they are so easy to make. I will have to try these this weekend.

  28. Those looks so amazing. I never think of using bananas for cookie recipes.

  29. I am loving the chocolate combination here. I actually have never made cookies with oats before.

  30. Debbie Denny says:

    Thats a great way to use up bananas. Looks really tasty.

  31. Mmm! These sound so scrumptious! I have every ingredient on hand, and am thinking of making these for a last day of school celebration for when the girls get home!

    These look easy enough for the kids to make too. I love the combo of bananas and chocolate.

  33. I love chocolate and banana together. Cookies are a perfect snack for the summer!

  34. I love involving the kids when cooking. They really enjoying it and I think it helps them focus.

  35. Those look pretty tasty! I can’t have oats, but maybe they’d work with coconut.

  36. I totally love anything that is a dessert and involves bananas. These sound delish.

  37. I think we all have some great options when it comes to no-bake sorts of cookies. This one looks like one I’ve tried before, but likely a bit healthier!

  38. These look good! I’d love to try making them. We seem to always stick to boring old chocolate chip!

  39. Ann Bacciaglia says:

    These look so delicious and simple to make. I will have to try making these on the weekend.

  40. These look so good! Looks simple and fun to make. Think I will get the kids to make them for me!

  42. I love tasting banana flavor in just about everything. Cookies with banana and oat flavor are right up my alley.

  43. These look yummy and I love the healthy ingredients!

  44. Yum. I don’t think I’ve ever had that combination before. I think it’s a great mix.

  49. These are great if you want cookies without gluten!

  50. What a great way to use up ripe bananas! I usually forget to do something with my brown bananas and end up tossing them and feeling guilty!

  51. Definitely going to try these this summer! I have a banana just waiting for this recipe!!!

  52. Your chocolate banana oat cookies look wonderful. I wish I wasnt allergic to oats. Thanks for sharing.

  53. These look very good! I love the oats for heart health.
