Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 2 1/2 dozen cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15-18 minutes

A great recipe for using up your brown bananas! These cookies freeze well too!


4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 large banana, mashed
1 ¼ cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and sugars, mix until smooth. Add in vanilla extract and egg. Next, add the banana. Beat well.

Slowly add in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.

Drop cookie dough by heaping tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets that have been lined with parchment paper or Silcone baking mats. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-18 minutes or until golden. Remove cookies from pans; cool completely on wire racks.

    I love these cookies! I’ve made them many, many times, and they are always a hit. I like to mix in different types of chips – half chocolate/half peanut butter and half chocolate/half cinnamon are wonderful combinations. Thanks for the great recipe. :)

    Made these today and they are SO GOOD. I used three bananas and added a bit of cinnamon. Deliciously moist chocolatey banana bread-y cookies. Three thumbs up 😉

    Just out of the oven…these are really good, super chewy! A yummy, more breakfast like cookie then something overly sweet. I did a mix of chocolate and peanut butter chips! Yum! Planning to share these with the teachers for the first day of school tomorrow! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
