These fast & easy cookies are a great homemade option any time you crave a sweet treat.
You can use either old-fashioned rolled oats or instant oats – but the rolled oats will give you a chewier cookie.
Banana Oat Cookies
(Makes 12 cookies)
- 1 large ripe banana
- 1 cup (80 g) oats
- ⅓ cup (85 g) natural peanut or almond butter
- ½ Tbsp honey or maple syrup
- Optional: 2 Tbsp raisins or cacao chips
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and preheat your oven to 350ºF/177ºC.
In a medium mixing bowl, mash the bananas and stir in the oats until well combined.
Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until mixed. The cookie dough will be sticky – but if it seems too loose, add some more oats until it reaches a cookie dough consistency.
Drop the dough by tablespoon onto your prepared pan and place in the oven. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool.
