These Banana Oat Cookies with Chocolate Chips are gluten free, vegan, and are low in added sugars. This healthy cookie recipe is an easy treat that both kids and adults love.

  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 8 1x


Units Scale
  • 2 ripe bananas, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats (use gluten-free oats for gluten-free diets)
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk (use regular milk if you aren’t dairy-free)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips or raisins


  1.  Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, place the bananas. Use a fork to mash them well. Then, add the coconut oil, oats, milk, cinnamon, baking powder, sea salt, and chocolate chips or raisins. Stir to combine.
  3. Use a tablespoon to drop rounded amounts of the batter onto the baking sheet. You should be able to make about 8-10 cookies.
  4. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the tops have turned golden brown. Let the cookies cool slightly before serving.


  1. Store any leftover in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Or, you can let the cookies cool completely and store them in a zip-top bag in the freezer for up to 2 months.
  2. For a truly no sugar added cookie, substitute an equal amount of raisins for the chocolate chips.
  3. Lastly, if only have frozen bananas on hand, you can use them. Just let your frozen bananas defrost overnight in the refrigerator before using.
