These banana oatmeal breakfast cookies taste just like banana bread, but in cookie form! They’re a delicious whole-grain option for a midday snack or light breakfast, and are gluten-free, dairy-free and nut free!
I’m always trying to create easy grab-n-go recipes. Not because I’m rushing out the door in the mornings (work from home life), but because I like to have things readily available before I sit down for breakfast.
These banana oatmeal cookies are soft-baked, and lightly sweetened with coconut sugar. They’re delicious with a serving of fruit, crumbled over some yogurt, or paired with a glass of plant-based milk.
What you’ll need to make these Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies
You’ll need a few simple ingredients for these cookies. These are ingredients I always keep stocked in my pantry, and love to use in my baking!
- ripe bananas- the spottier, the better for baking!
- rolled oats
- oat flour- buy it pre-made or blend your own from rolled oats!
- coconut sugar
- coconut oil
- vanilla exract
- dairy-free chocolate chips- I love using these mini, allergy-friendly ones!
I love these cookies with chocolate chips, but you can fill them with anything you like. Walnuts or dried fruit would be great options.
These cookies are so easy to make, and a perfect way to use up some ripe bananas. Be sure to tag me on Instagram if you try them, and check out some of my other favorite banana recipes below!
These are amazing! Pleasantly surprised that they’re sweet but not over powering at all. Just a hint. Love these so much and honestly they could even serve as an actual cookie for me they’re that good. Love! Will be making them again!
Thank you Kirstin! I’m so glad you tried them out 🙂
Hi! Can you use rye flour or APF? Thank you!
I think all-purpose would work well!
These are amazing!!!!!! I substituted the oat flour for almond meal and they turned out perfect. I also used a dark coffee chocolate and the hint of coffee added a nice flavour. They are so easy to make with ingredients at home and will be making these weekly forsure. Thank you Gal – I’m obsessed 🙂
I’m so glad you tried them, Rachel! And happy to hear the almond flour worked well as a replacement.
Wow, these taste exactly like banana bread! Made these cookies today and my husband loves it! I will definitely make these again!
I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed it!
