Banana Oatmeal Cookies

I’ve been on a baking craze lately, looking for healthy-ish options that I can feed my little while also using up some of the food that’s ready to eat. This is an easy recipe I found that helps us use up some of our ripe bananas (because goodness knows I don’t want to be this person). The end texture is chewy but still delicious, and my 2 year old really liked them, so it’s a win in my books!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 3/4 cups quick oats
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line up a cookie tray.
  2. Mash up the bananas.
  3. Mix in the oats and stir.
  4. Mix in the chocolate chips and vanilla extract and stir.
  5. Drop them by the tablespoon onto a prepared cookie tray. You can shape them into cookies with the spoon since they don’t spread at all.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes.

This makes about 16 cookies.sns
