Recipe (Re)creation: Oatmeal + Banana + Chocolate Chip Cookies

I bet you can't stop at just one!  Luckily these cookies are super healthy and nutritious and can easily be eaten for breakfast or a snack without feeling too indulgent.  I based these cookies off a recipe from my friend Casey and her blog Pink Brandywine.  She mentioned how much her son loved these cookies and thought they'd be the perfect bite-sized treat for my little one.  Feel free to experiment with adding other ingredients as well- you can't really mess these up!

Makes 12 cookies


  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tbsp. almond butter
  • 1-2 tbsp. dark chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a baking sheet.
Mash the banana and oats in a bowl until they are well blended.
Add the cinnamon, vanilla and almond butter and continue mixing.
Scoop round spoonfuls of dough and place on your baking sheet.
Top each cookie with a sprinkle of chocolate chips.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes and enjoy!
