These cookies are BANANAS

B-A-N-A-N-A-S.

Do you guys remember when that was THE song? I just googled it because I thought it was a popular song, liiiike, maybe 2 years ago?

IT WAS in 2004! Ummmmm. When I was 14! 14 YEARS AGO.

Did I just make you feel REAL OLD? Good. Join the club.

Good thing we have this healthy banana oatmeal cookies recipe to make us feel ALL SORTS of better.

You KNOW that I would never do such an evil-awful-dark-cloud-so-much-bad kind of things like make us all have a we-feel-so-old-we’re-basically-fossilized-pity-party without some kind of LIGHT at the end of the tunnel of DESPAIR. <– Probably an exaggeration.

Cookies, cookies, cookies! I simply can’t get enough of them and I KNOW I’m not alone in feeling that way! Here at FFF, we have SO many cookie recipes and one of my favorite variations is the OATMEAL COOKIE.

Today’s healthy peanut butter banana oatmeal cookies recipe is a game changer, because it is made with better-for-you, less processed and delicious ingredients that you can feel good about baking with. These cookies are healthy, protein packed, and can be made gluten free if needed. What’s NOT to love?!

Healthy Recipe Swaps

To make these peanut butter banana oatmeal breakfast cookies, I decided to swap out some typical cookie-making ingredients for some less processed, better-for-you choices and you know what? They still turned out chewy, sweet, and delicious! Here are a few changes I made to a typical cookie recipe:

Banana: Instead of eggs, I used banana which can help bind the cookies together as an egg replacement. 

Natural Peanut Butter: Some peanut butters are loaded with add-ins and processed sugars, so for this recipe I used an all natural peanut butter.

Coconut Sugar: I used this less processed variety of sugar instead of regular white sugar.

Ingredients Needed

Making your own batch of oatmeal cookies with bananas and peanut butter is SO easy, and doesn’t require a long and complicated list of ingredients that you’ll need to search your local supermarket for. Here is everything you will need to make them in the comfort of your own home:

  • Banana
  • Creamy Natural Peanut Butter
  • Coconut Sugar
  • Quick Cooking Oats
  • Roasted Salted Peanuts

How to make Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Prepare

Turn on the oven and let it preheat while you work. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silpat. 

Mix

In a large bowl, add the banana, peanut butter and coconut sugar and whisk until thoroughly combined. Stir in the oats until combined, then finally stir in the peanuts. 

Bake

Drop the dough by spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet, pressing them down slightly with a fork. Place the pan in the oven and bake until the edges of the cookies are golden brown and the centers are set and springy. 

DEVOUR
Let the cookies cool COMPLETELY on the pan, then serve them up and enjoy!

Recipe Variations

One of my favorite parts of baking cookies is the ENDLESS possibilities when it comes to add-ins! For these peanut butter banana oatmeal cookies, you can enjoy them just as they are or get creative with them! They already contain crunchy peanuts, but you could add in chopped walnuts or pecans instead and also use pecan butter, cashew butter or almond butter instead of the peanut butter if your heart desires. Add a bit of rich indulgence by throwing in a handful of chocolate chips or dried cranberries! 

How to store Oatmeal Cookies

These oatmeal cookies are great fresh, but can also be stored for future enjoyment! Place them in an airtight container or a freezer safe ziploc bag and label them with the date. For fridge storage, place the container or bag in the fridge and they will keep for up to a week! For freezer storage, place the container or bag in the freezer and the cookies will last up to 3 months.
