  • 1½ cups quick-cooking oats (see Tip)
  • 1 cup oat flour (see Tip)
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil or unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup chopped dates, preferably Medjool, or raisins
  • ½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Combine oats, oat flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Mash bananas in a medium bowl until creamy. Add eggs, coconut oil (or butter) and vanilla; whisk until well combined. Add the dry ingredients and dates (or raisins) and coconut to the banana mixture; stir until combined. Roll tablespoons of dough into balls and place on the prepared baking sheet, making 15 cookies per batch. Press with a fork to flatten slightly.
  3. Bake until firm to the touch and lightly brown on the bottom, 15 to 17 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  • Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats and oat flours that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
  • To make ahead: Store airtight at room temperature for up to 3 days.
  • Equipment: Parchment paper or silicone baking mat

I've made these twice now. My husband and I both like them. As stated there is no sugar added so they are not a sweet cookie but you feel like you could eat these as a quick on the go breakfast.
