Banana Oatmeal Cookies Recipe Ingredients
The only ingredients needed for whole grain cookies are ripe bananas, rolled or quick oats, and regular or mini chocolate chips.
Recipes offer many customization opportunities. Add a handful of shredded coconut, add chopped walnuts, or substitute chocolate chips for raisins.
These oatmeal banana cookies are great with 4 teaspoons each of cinnamon and pure vanilla or almond essence.
I also love adding almond butter and peanut butter, because there is nothing better than the combination of peanut butter, banana and dark chocolate.
You can also use white chocolate chips or vegan peanut butter chips.
An optional pinch of salt added to the oatmeal banana cookie dough adds depth of flavor and enhances the sweetness of these healthy cookies.
Alternatives I haven’t tried and can’t recommend include replacing the bananas with unsweetened applesauce or canned pumpkin, or using steel-cut oats.
