HOMEMADE BANANA OATMEAL COOKIES

My kids love cookies and these Homemade Banana Oatmeal Cookies are top of their list. 

These are a soft, chewy cookie that mixes together bananas, oats, coconut flour and coconut oil to create a delicious treat. 

These are a nice change from the usual cookies like these Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies or these Peanut Butter Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies that my kids eat.

I love making these cookies when I have leftover bananas which is often.

We usually end up with one overly ripe banana and I don’t know what to do with it so end up making these Homemade Banana Oatmeal Cookies. 

I also like using ripe bananas for these Banana Oatmeal Muffins and this Pineapple Smoothie

These Banana Oatmeal Cookies are a great snack for adults and kids and they freeze great for later! 

Homemade Banana Oatmeal Cookies ingredients.

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN THESE BANANA OATMEAL COOKIES?

FLOUR: This recipe uses oat flour. You can buy it at the grocery store or make your own. 

Oat flour is a grain flour made from oats that is gluten-free. It’s a very healthy product, with more protein and fiber than regular flour and is lower in carbs.

SUGAR: Coconut sugar is used as the sugar in this recipe. You could use regular granulated sugar if you would like. 

BAKING POWDER: The baking powder helps the cookies rise when you bake them. 

NUT BUTTER: I use almond butter for these cookies but you can use cashew or peanut butter.

Each will alter the taste a bit to the nut butter you use. 

COCONUT OIL: The melted coconut oil helps hold these cookies together and give them a soft consistency. 

BANANAS: I used 1 small mashed banana in this recipe. It is a great use for leftover bananas! 

OATS: For this recipe I used old fashioned oats. 

CHOCOLATE CHIPS: You don’t have to add chocolate to this cookie recipe but if you want to I like using chocolate chips or chopped chocolate.

You can use semi-sweet or dark chocolate.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until cookies are golden brown and flat.

Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool completely – they come out of the oven soft and harden as they cool.
