Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies!

It’s a rarity that I will post someone else’s recipe, but these are just too good not to share! I admit, I never would have thought to add banana to cookies, but it is a delicious (and healthy!) addition.

Thanks to Kath (@Kath Eats Real Food) for doing a post on these cookies… and to Tina (@ Carrots ‘N’ Cake) for coming up with the recipe in the first place!

The only major changes I made, were to un-veganize them. I don’t consider soy milk to be a “real food” by my definition, and thus I used good ol’ cows milk. I also subbed honey for agave nectar (which in my opinion is super-processed as well).  The chocolate chips I chose were Ghirardelli 60% cacao chips. Soooo tasty!


  • ½ c whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 TBSP ground flaxseed meal
  • ¼ c honey
  • ¼ c milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 TBSP canola oil
  • 1 ripe banana
  • ½ c chocolate chips
  • ¼ c walnuts
  • Generous pinch of salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F)
  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well until batter is blended evenly.
  • Use a tablespoon to portion cookies on a greased baking sheet, approximately 1-2 inches apart.  (This recipe for me made 23 TINY cookies).
  • Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes.
  • Remove cookies from baking sheet and allow to cool on wire rack.
  • Eat and enjoy!
