Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

The best banana oatmeal chocolate chip cookies you’ve ever had in your life…..seriously.  Some of my favorite random things in life include arising early with the sun, warm peaceful beach adventures, puppies….well all animals, a good cup of coffee, creating photographs, perfect avocados, a.m. workouts, finding coral, having endless supply of lemons in my house, homemade meals and always homemade chocolate chip cooooookies. My weakness 🙂  They are by far one of the best cookies I’ve ever made…well had….in my life! ah! 🙂 The ingredients are the perfect combination and they taste like a warm oatmeal banana chocolate dream.  If you like to bake, love chocolate chip cookies, or just want to try a new recipe, make these. Mmmm!

They are perfect for breakfast, mid-afternoon snack, or really anytime. With oats, bananas, coconut oil, cinnamon, almond butter, and other tasty ingredients…what’s not to love? I wish I could hand deliver these to everyone.


2 ripe bananas

1/3 cup almond butter (I used a mix of creamy and crunchy)

¼ cup coconut oil

2 Tbsp. Almond milk

2 Tbsp. Maple syrup

1-2 tsp. vanilla

1 1/2 cups of certified organic and gluten free rolled oats (maybe a little bit more if batter looks to thin)

1 tsp. cinnamon

2 Tbsp. Brown sugar

Healthy pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt

Dash of cacao powder

¼ cup of dairy free (or regular) chocolate chips



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until smooth. Mix in the almond butter, coconut oil, almond milk, maple syrup, and vanilla.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the flour, oats, brown sugar, salt, cacao and cinnamon. Pour the dry ingredients into the large bowl, and mix together and then add chocolate chips.
  • Drop spoonful’s onto a tray lined with parchment paper; then bake for 11-13 minutes or until slightly brown.

Oh yea, one more thing….these amazing cookies are both dairy and gluten free…but shhhhh, don’t tell anyone, it might scare them away.  The words gluten and vegan tend to steer some people off without even looking into the ingredients.  These are truly the best!  You gotta make um!  Check out more recipes here and here.
