Recipe Notes, Substitutions and Variations

Be sure to use VERY RIPE Bananas since they are the only form of sweetness.

The cookies are good soon after baking, but improve a lot after sitting for a few hours (they become softer and sweeter).

Stir-In or Topping Ideas: chocolate chips, chopped dried fruit (raisins, apricots, cranberries, cherries), chopped nuts, shredded coconut, powdered peanut butter

Make thumbprints: Prepare as directed. After scooping dough onto baking sheet, make an indentation in each cookie; fill with 1/2 teaspoon jam, preserves, jelly, apple butter, or nut butter. Bake as directed.

Store the cooled cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for 2 days, or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Ingredients

  • 2 large very ripe bananas, peeled (peels should have lots of black spots)
  • 1 cup oats (old-fashioned or quick)

Optional Flavorings

  • pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground sweet spice (cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, pumpkin pie spice, etc)

Optional Stir-Ins or Toppings

  • chocolate chips, chopped dried fruit (raisins, apricots, cranberries, cherries), chopped nuts, shredded coconut, powdered peanut butter 

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray or line (parchment, foil, silpat).
  • In a medium bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until almost no lumps remain (the mixture should be almost liquid if using really ripe bananas; you should have about 1 cup). Stir in the oats until well-blended. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes. Mix in any optional ingredients, if using.
  • Using a small cookie scoop or rounded tablespoon measure, drop rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Press down for flatter cookies (they don’t really spread). Sprinkle with any of the suggested toppings, if desired.

    Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 18 minutes until golden brown and firm to touch at the center. Transfer to cooling rack and cool completely.
