My Oil-Free, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies

After much popular demand, I have decided to divulge my secret recipe for one of my favorite cookies. I make these anytime we have a party to go to or the kids (or husband…OK-or I) have a craving for something sweet, warm and chewy.

They are oil-free and quick to make…but, unfortunately, they are not perfect. They have sugar and chocolate chips…and I know I have a lot of peers that will not approve. But, as a Mom of little kidletsand as a chocolate chip cookie-lover, sometimes you just have to let your hair down and live life on the edge! So, enjoy them guilt-free!


• 1 banana

• ½ cup pure maple syrup

• 1 tbsp vanilla extract

• ¾ cups oat flour

• ½ cup turbinado or raw sugar

• 2 cups rolled oats

• ½ tsp salt

• ½ tsp baking soda

• ½ tsp baking powder

• 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, mash the banana with the back of a fork.

Add in maple syrup and vanilla and mix very well (using a hand blender or mixer helps).

Add oat flour, sugar, oats, salt, baking soda and baking powder.

Mix until well-combined.

Add in chocolate chips until they are evenly distributed throughout mixture.

Scoop small amounts onto an aluminum foil-covered baking sheet.

Bake 7-10 minutes, depending on size.

Allow to cool before peeling them off of foil.

Enjoy with a tall glass of oat, almond, hemp, rice or soy milk!
