Hello, friend! Hope you are having a nice weekend. If not, here’s a wholesome cookie recipe that could turn a blah weekend into a less blah one. Tada, check out this banana, chocolate, and oatmeal cookies! These cookies would taste great eaten with your favorite nut milk. I LOVE almond milk.
Sidenote, I know it’s no longer the holiday season and I am very much living in the new year, but I have to admit that I do miss the cheesy Christmas marathon specials that I used to watch or put on as background noise while I was lounging on the couch perusing the web or while I was in the kitchen cooking. Did you do that? No, just me? 😛 I partially blame it on the cold weather. It is making me feel like it’s still Christmas.
I would like to get into a new tv series and just binge-watch it. I love binge-watching tv series on Netflix and I have not done that in a while. I think the last thing I binge-watched was a tv series called “Mr. Robot,” a really good drama series by the way! I am open to your suggestions. 🙂
Back to these cookies…you should try them out! It’s easy to make and requires only five ingredients. Easy peasy. Now excuse me while I decide on something to binge-watch and stuff my face with these cookies. 😉
Have a great Sunday!
+ 2 cups old-fashioned oats (or quick minute oats)
+ 4 ripe bananas
+ 1/3 cup almond milk
+ ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
+ ¼ cup coconut flakes
- Set and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Add the bananas and almond milk into a large bowl, then mash bananas until the mixture becomes soft.
- Add the dark chocolate chips, coconut flakes, and oats into the banana mixture and mix well.
- Prep a baking sheet pan that is lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
- Add about 14 spoonfuls of cookie batter onto the lined baking sheet and place the cookie batter about 1 to 2 inches apart.
- Place baking sheet in the oven set to 350 degrees for 20 to 40 minutes. Rotate baking sheet at the halfway mark to bake cookies evenly.
- After cookies are fully baked, place the cookies on a metal baking rack to cool for at least 15 to 30 minutes or until fully cooled.
