{My Recipes} Banana Chocolate Chip "Cookies"

So these cookies aren't your traditional cookies. They're soft and a bit chewy and made entirely out of bananas...well, mostly. There's only three ingredients and they count as healthy in my book so I shoveled three in my mouth as soon as they'd cooled off. Plus the quads all devoured them, too, so they're a good option for kiddos' snacks! I found several similar recipes on Pinterest and pinpointed exactly the right amount of chocolate chips to add so here's the skinny on my banana cookies...

1 cup rolled oats or quick oats
2 mashed bananas (like, thoroughly mashed)
1/3 cup chocolate chips

Mix all the ingredients really well, then spoon onto an ungreased non-stick baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.

The results are a soft, slightly chewy, fruity cookie that I've decided not to feel guilty about eating. Enjoy, my friends!

  1. how many does this recipe make? the 14 that show on the cookie sheet?

    1. yes! i only made one batch and they're all pictured on the cookie sheet...sort of depends on how big/small you made your spoonfuls, too :)

  2. I have you PINNED!! These look good! Funny but I could never get you to eat banana cookies when you were little. Of course, maybe I didn't pair it with chocolate!! You are awesome!

  3. We just posted about these yesterday!

  4. Going to have to try the cookies,they look yummy.
    Have never been on Pinterest, my daughters cannot believe it, may have to see what all the rave is;)

  5. These look great! I think it will be a good way to use bananas when they start looking a bit brown, and these three ingredients are staples around these parts.
    I love that pin button you added! I'm not sure how to do that, but if I figure it out will follow suit. Putting watermarks on your pictures should help prevent theft.

  6. Those look great! We'll have to try those :) We make these http://fitandhealthywithdebbie.blogspot.com/2012/10/banana-oatmeal-breakfast-muffins.html the kids love them, and they are a great snack. I spread a little almond butter on top for a little "frosting" for them too.
    We also make a chocolate chip cookie using chickpeas!

  7. I made these today had to try them! Yum. My mother in law can't have salt and these were an awesome substitute snack!
