  • 1 cup mashed bananas, 2 large bananas
  • 1/3 cup creamy almond butter, can use peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, can use honey
  • 1 large egg, can use a flax egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/4 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup raisins, can use dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips, optional
  • Flaky sea salt, for sprinkling on top, optional


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the mashed bananas, nut butter, maple syrup, egg, and vanilla extract. Stir until smooth.
  • Add the oat flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Stir until just combined. Stir in the oats, dried fruit, and chocolate chips, if using.
  • Let the dough sit for about 5 to 10 minutes so the oats can soak into the mixture a little.
  • Scoop the dough onto prepared baking sheets, about 2 tablespoons per cookie.
  • Bake the cookies for 10 to 14 minutes or until they’re set, but still soft.
  • Remove the cookies from the oven and sprinkle with flaky sea salt, if desired. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.


Store the cookies in an airtight container on the counter for up to 4 days. Freeze in a freezer container for up to 3 months.
