  • 2 large bananas ripe*
  • 1 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats large oats
  • 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips see note


  • Set the oven rack to the upper-middle position. Then preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C).
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat and set aside.
  • Peel the bananas and place on a large plate. Using a fork, mash them until smooth with no more lumps.
  • Add the oats and mashed bananas to a medium-size bowl and mix well. If the mixture seems too wet, mix in a few more tablespoons of oats.
  • Add the chocolate chips and stir to combine.
  • Scoop one tablespoon of batter onto the baking sheet and flatten it to about ½-inch (12 mm) thick with your fingertips. Repeat for the rest of the batter, spacing the cookies an inch apart.
  • Bake for 15 – 20 minutes until puffy.
  • Remove from oven. Let the cookies cool for 5-10 minutes and then use a rigid spatula to remove to a wire rack to cool completely.



  • * Look for ripe bananas with brown spots. If they’ve turned completely brown on the inside, they’re too ripe.
  • Make it gluten-free: simply use gluten-free oats to avoid any risk of contamination from wheat.
  • Make it sugar-free: simply use sugar-free chocolate chips instead of regular semisweet chocolate chips.
  • Storage: Let the cookies cool completely and store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. You can also freeze for up to 3 months in an airtight container with layers of parchment or wax paper in between to prevent sticking.
