How to Make This Recipe

First, you need to preheat the oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. The rest of the prep only takes 5 minutes – plenty of time for the oven to warm up without wasting energy!

Add your bananas into a large bowl and mash them until the mixture is consistent. Not sure what to do with your banana peels? How about making this banana peel vegan bacon?

Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until fully combined. Wet your hands and form the dough into eight (preferably even) balls. Place your cookies at least 1 inch apart on the prepared sheetpan. Flatten the balls with your hands or the back of a fork until they are approximately 1/2 inch thick.

Bake for 12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a cookie comes out clean. You can enjoy these warm or wait for them to cool down!

Hack It!

  • As an alternative to chocolate chips, you can add cacao nibs, pumpkin seeds, or dried berries.
  • Although oats are generally gluten-free, they are often processed in the same factory spaces as glutem-containing cereals. If you have a serious intolerance or allergy, search for gluten-free oats in the store.
  • As well as being a great breakfast option, these cookies can be served to your guests for dessert.
  • For a more crunchy finish, you can bake your cookies in an airfryer!
