Banana, Chocolate, & Oatmeal Cookies

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. 🙂

Tip: For natural sweetness, using really ripe bananas will work perfectly in this recipe.

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!

cookies:

+ 2 cups old-fashioned oats (or quick minute oats)

  1. Set and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add the bananas and almond milk into a large bowl, then mash bananas until the mixture becomes soft.
  3. Add the dark chocolate chips, coconut flakes, and oats into the banana mixture and mix well.
  4. Prep a baking sheet pan that is lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
  5. Add about 14 spoonfuls of cookie batter onto the lined baking sheet and place the cookie batter about 1 to 2 inches apart.
  6. 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.
