These healthy cookies are made with just three ingredients! Mashed ripe bananas, oatmeal and walnuts. OMG, these really ARE healthy!
The cookies are best right out of the oven, they are chewy and soft – just how I like my cookies. I’m really so excited about these cookies, can’t you tell? Thank you, thank you to the person who emailed me this recipe. It was actually a recipe for a two ingredient cookie, but walnuts and bananas really do it for me, think banana bread.. in a cookie.
I’m anxiously awaiting my next batch of bananas to get super ripe so I can make them again. This time, I’m going to add almonds and see how they turn out. Next time, maybe raisins? chocolate chips? Cinnamon, pumpkin spice, vanilla… can’t wait!
Egg free, dairy free, gluten free (use gf oats), vegetarian, vegan, kid friendly… what else can I say??
Healthy Cookies Tips
- Be sure your bananas are super ripe.The riper the sweeter since we are not adding sugar here.
- You can add cinnamon for added flavor.
- I’ve only tested them with quick oats, but rolled oats will work fine too.
