  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 3 overripe or ripe bananas
  • ½ cup peanut butter or any nut butter

Optional Add Ins:

  • ¼ - ½ cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  • In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork or potato masher. 
  • Stir the oats and peanut butter into the bananas until combined. Mix well. Optionally, stir in chocolate chips and maple syrup for sweetness. 
  • Before working with the dough, wet your hands to prevent the dough from sticking. Use a spoon or large cookie scoop to portion out 8 balls of dough. Use your hands to flatten the dough into round cookies about ½ inch tall.
  • Place the cookies on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the preheated oven for 12 - 15 minutes, until lightly browned. 
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 10 - 15 minutes before transferring to a wire rack (or a plate) to cool completely.
