Healthy Banana-Oatmeal Cookies

  • Author: Rachel Zierzow
  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 35 mins
  • Yield: 12 cookies 1x
  • Category: Dessert
  • Cuisine: American

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/4 cups rolled oats
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 cup mashed ripe banana (1 large banana)
  • 1/2 cup almond butter or peanut butter
  • up to 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon flaxseed meal or 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons unrefined coconut oil, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup raisins, dried cranberries, or chopped dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup pepitas, chopped walnuts, or coconut flakes

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together oats, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, almond flour, and rice flour. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together banana, maple syrup, flaxseed meal, coconut oil, and vanilla until smooth. You can adjust the amount of maple syrup (some people like it without, or with 1 or 2 tablespoons instead of 3).
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir to combine with a rubber spatula.
  5. Using two spoons, drop about 2 tablespoons of dough per cookie onto parchment covered baking sheet, leaving about an inch between each mound. Wet hands with water and flatten cookies with fingers to the size cookies you would like.
  6. Bake 15 to 17 minutes, or until cookies are golden. Cool cookies on sheet rather than transferring them to a cooling rack to avoid having them fall apart.
  7. Store in an airtight container or individually wrap and freeze for on-the-go breakfasts or snacks later on.
