Healthy Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hi everyone!

Thank you all for your kind words regarding yesterday’s post.  Thank you for letting me stray off track for a day.

With the seasons changing, fall weather arriving and kids going back to school it seems like the food I crave quickly starts to change.  Soups, apples, pumpkin and even some baked goods really spark my interest this time of year.

But I know eating regular ole’ cookies all the time is not something that I can or want to do.  That’s where these super healthy Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies come into play.  They have no flour or added sugar (other than what is in the chocolate chips.)  They are vegan and totally clean eating.

Yet somehow they still taste amazing!

These little babies have mashed up banana and oats.  Other than the chocolate chips, they honestly could be a breakfast cookie.  They are that “clean.”

They come together really quickly.  The only trick is you have to form them into cookie shapes because they don’t flatten out like regular cookies.

The finished product is oaty, bannana-y, chocolate-y goodness.

Stack them high for a quick and healthy afternoon pick-me-up or evening snack.  I even like the small portions because you can grab one and get all the flavors without overdoing it.

And for those of you with kids, these Clean Eating Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies would be fabulous for an afternoon snack.  They don’t have to know how healthy they really are!  I will not tell.

Course: Dessert
Author: Julie Wunder
Ingredients
  • 3 large over-ripe bananas mashed
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup apple sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips if vegan make sure to buy dairy-free chocolate
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the bananas, milk, vanilla extract and apple sauce in bowl.
  3. Mix the oats and cinnamon in another bowl.
  4. Fold both together slowly and then fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Using a mini-ice cream scoop form "cookies" out of the mixture. They will retain their shape in cooking, so they work best when flat.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.
  7. Store in fridge.

    Can I let out the bananas? What would I use instead?

      Hi Miranda! You really don’t taste the banana. If you want to leave them out I might try a different recipe though… I’m not sure what a sub would be and I haven’t tested it that way so I’d hate to say something would work if I’m not sure! But these are delish!

    I haven’t read your yesterday post yet, but will go over to check that out. I saw something on IG and meant to read it, so this was a good reminder.

    These cookies sound really good! Mary Ellen of V.Nutrition is hosting a healthy eating challenge and although I’m excited to lay off some junkier food I’ve been getting in the habit of over-enjoying, I also need something to keep my sweet tooth happy. These are perfect!

      Thanks Kimmy! They are really good and keep the sweets in check. Hope you are having a good weekend.
