Healthy Banana Oatmeal Cookies are so easy to make and require just 3 simple ingredients. Vegan and easily made gluten-free, these cookies are perfect for breakfast, dessert, or a snack.
- Preheat your oven to 350˚F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Peel and place the bananas into a medium-sized mixing bowl. Using a potato masher or fork mash the bananas until they are kind of smooth. If there are a few chunks that’s totally fine.
- Add the oats and combine them with the bananas using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Fold in the chocolate chips until everything is well combined.
- Spoon out 1 heaping tablespoon of the mixture using a cookie scoop or a 1 Tbsp measuring spoon and place it onto the baking sheet. Use the back of a spoon to flatten the dough out just a bit. Continue until you have made 12 cookies or all of the cookie dough is gone.
- Place into the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes. The cookies should be slightly golden.
- Remove and let cool for a few minutes. Enjoy!
