If you’ve been following this blog or my social media outlets for a while, you know that I love easy, no fuss recipes. Even though I do sometimes decorate my breakfast elaborately, the base recipes for are usually simple. So are these Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies. TheyΒ haveΒ literally 3 ingredients. Just like the incredibly popular Soft Raspberry Oatmeal Cookies, which are really really good too. But this time, we are talking about banana-y, chocolate-y goodness – and I’m pretty sure you will have all the ingredients at home.

All you need for them are bananas, oats and chocolate chips or chunks, if you prefer them. I love simple ingredients and recipes that are so easy, you can hardly call them a recipe (just like the Banana Pancakes I posted about last week). But here you go, enjoy my Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies. If you want your oats a bit finer, just put them in a blender or food processor and pulse them a few times! The food processor is generally the lazy way to make those cookies – put everything but the chocolate chips in there, pulse a few times and you’re done. Just saying. πŸ˜€ You could theoretically eat them without baking too. But believe me, you don’t want to miss out on the actual baked cookie that results from this combination.

Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 1 cup oats
  • 2 bananas (if they are large, 1 might be enough)
  • 3 tbsp chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180Β°C/360Β°F.
  2. Mash bananas and mix well with the oats. You could also put the oats and banana in a food processor and let it do the "work" for you.
  3. Add the chocolate chips in - adjust the amount to your personal liking! For me, 3 tbsp are the perfect amount of chocolate.
  4. Take a spoon and portion the cookies on a lined baking tray.
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes. Enjoy!
Notes
If you feel the mixture is too dry, you could add a splash of (non-dairy) milk of your choice, but usually you don't need it. It could also be a sign, that your bananas were too small, so if you have some leftover banana, you could also just add more banana. Oh, and make sure that the banana is really ripe - the sweetness of the recipe will depend on it!

I hope you enjoy this simple Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies recipe – please share it with your friends! I’m going to continue packing right now, because I’m going on an somewhat extended trip tomorrow morning. I’ll let you know more about it later this week, when I’ve arrived at my destination. πŸ™‚ If you want to be one of the first to know, follow me on Snapchat (curlsnchard) and also have a peek at Facebook and Instagram, where I’m usually pretty quick to share news. Have a great week!

    1. Me too – the only recipes where I sometimes go overboard are smoothies πŸ˜€ I hope you have success with your elimination diet! Let me know when you tried them, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

    1. Oh, I’m so happy you love my banana pancakes! Those cookies are definitely a winner with the kids too – super simple ingredients, no added sugar and still sweet and yummy πŸ™‚

    1. Hahaha, thank you Fabiola! They are really so easy, when I was introduced to the concept of 3 ingredient oatmeal cookies I had a hard time believing that they were possible and delicious too πŸ™‚

    1. They are really easy, Ev! Even if you are not a fan of baking, they are super quick to throw together, and you don’t have to wash a ton of bowls afterwards πŸ˜‰ Let me know when you try them!

    1. They are so good and super popular, no matter whether kids or adults πŸ˜€ I just use a spoon to portion them out, that’s the whole “magic” behind their looks πŸ˜‰

    1. Hey LΓ©a, well – I do think you can eat them raw! You would have to store them in the fridge though, because the raw mashed banana would turn bad otherwise. And I would also let them sit for at least an hour before eating them, so the oats can soak up some moisture from the banana, because otherwise it’s going to be kind of dry. I do think it would taste good raw too – if anything, you could still make oatmeal out of it by adding milk in case it doesn’t turn out that well. Let me know though if you get around to trying it!

  1. Love this simple scrumptiousness! I’ve only been able to have oats again in my diet recently and am loving how simple it is to bake with them. I’ve actually got a very similar recipe to share soon πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much Audrey! I’m really looking forward to seeing your recipe, they always have really unexpected twists in them πŸ™‚ I’m so glad you can eat oats again – they are so versatile!

    1. Hihi, weiß aber nicht ob sie dann noch zusammen halten πŸ˜‰ Gib mir bescheid wenn du es probiert hast und mit was du die Haferflocken ersetzt hast πŸ™‚

    1. Aww, thank you so much, Melissa! I love making cookies this size – they are easy to portion and are perfect for that little sweet craving πŸ™‚

  2. Delicious, nice texture. Thank you for this simple recipe for my endless supply of overripe bananas. It’s perfect as is, and in the future I may experiment by adding unsweetened shredded coconut, a tiny pinch of salt, melted coconut oil, or sub the chocolate chips with bits of dried fruit. I needed to bake for about 10 minutes longer, but that may be due to my oven.

    1. Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback, Gail! I’m sure coconut would taste great in it – you could even replace some of the oats with shredded coconut? I haven’t tried that yet, but I think it might work. I love using frozen raspberries or blueberries instead of chocolate chips too. That’s interesting that you had to bake longer, because I slightly burnt my first batch when I left it for just 3 minutes longer! πŸ˜€ That again shows, how different ovens are. πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Christine! That sounds like a great combination – also the sweetness from the raisins kicks the general sweetness of the cookies up a notch. Thank you so much for sharing!

  3. These were awesome! I added ground flaxseed, cinnamon, chia seed “egg”, and raisins instead of chocolate chips. Added 1/4 cup more oats and baked for 15 min at 350F. Healthy and yummy

    1. Hi Keelin! I stored them in a container in a cool spot in my kitchen. I ate them pretty fast, so if you live somewhere very warm or want to keep them longer, storing them in the fridge will be the way to go. They will turn softer though and might loose some of their taste. I hope this helps! πŸ™‚

  4. I just got done making 2 1/2 batches of these. They are fantastic! Taste like banana bread with chocolate! I am on the FODMAP diet and have been searching for recipe’s that I can have! I just love chocolate, and I can only eat Dark. So these will be my go to snack until I can find more recipe’s! Thank you for posting Kat! πŸ˜‰

    1. Hey, thanks for asking πŸ™‚ I don’t provide that kind of numbers, because I don’t count calories. It can’t be much though if you look at the ingredients! Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚
