Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Hi guys,

It is 10:30pm as I’m writing this post and the baby is finally asleep! Instead of going to bed (which is what I should be doing) I decided to turn on my oven and make these delicious oatmeal cookies that I have been craving all day and decided to share the recipe with you so you too can indulge at night without feeling guilty ;). The original recipe is from a post I saw by Ellen Fisher (a famous vegan YouTuber) a while back,  since then I’ve made them several times and I’ve modified the recipe to what I like  better which is the recipe I will share here.   If you want to see the original recipe you can go to Ellen Fisher’s Instagram Page.

These cookies are so delicious! you only need a few ingredients and they are what you would call “healthy”.  They are great for breakfast or as a snack and are guilt free!

Enough talking… this is what you will need:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup of old fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 Tbs of Maple Syrup (or more if you want them sweeter)
  • 1/4 cup of shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips  OR  1/4 cup of raisins
  • Sprinkle some cinnamon on top (optional)

  1. Preheat oven at 350 (F) degrees
  2. In a bowl mash the 2 bananas until smooth
  3. Add the Oatmeal and mix together
  4. Add the maple syrup, coconut shreds, and chocolate chips or raisins
  5. Stir it all together until it is nicely mixed
  6. Use baking paper on tray to make sure the cookies don’t stick
  7. Use a spoon to scoop the mixture onto the baking tray and make the cookie shape
  8. Place tray in the oven for 20 minutes

Let them cool off for about 5 minutes and ENJOY!

Feel free to play with this recipe and add walnuts and dried cranberries instead of the raisins, or anything you like.  I love the chocolate chip because it tastes just like a chocolate chip cookie but with out all the bad stuff.

I hope you try this recipe and let me know if you like it.

Love,

Yesika
