  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Mash the bananas in a large bowl.
  3. Then add the peanut butter and vanilla extract, stirring until combined.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients, and mix.
  5. Roll the dough into balls and then press each and form each ball into a cookie shape, as these cookies don't spread on their own in the oven. Place the cookies on a parchment-lined baking tray.
  6. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 10 - 12 minutes, or until the tops turn golden.
  7. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!


  • * If you don’t have quick oats, pulse regular rolled oats in a blender or food processor until coarsely chopped.


  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days, or in the freezer for up to 2 months.

So glad you enjoyed them, Tom!

I also really love these. I use them as breakfast cookies, they're really filling! They're great to store in the freezer, freeze them individually. Then put them in the oven for like ~5 minutes and they're nice and warm again.
I agree they're a bit sticky when forming them but it's not really a problem for me :)

(also, love the updated site! Finally we can comment on individual recipes!)

We're so happy to hear you've been enjoying the recipe, Myrthe! Using slightly damp hands or chilling the mixture for a little bit before forming the cookies may help reduce the stickiness. Glad it's worth it 😃

Easy to make, quite sticky when you form the cookies. But the taste is very good and I like that there is no additional sugar despite the chocolate. Next time I will take cacoa nibs, I like the crunch and it's without sugar then.

Thanks for the review, Natascha! Using slightly damp hands may help with the stickiness. Cacoa nibs sound like a yummy addition 😍

Delicious healthy snack or dessert and perfect to batch bake for work/school lunches. I used dried apricots with mine. Will definitely make regularly as they are easy, wholesome pantry staples.

Apricots sound delicious! So glad you enjoyed the cookies, Ruby 😀
