Healthy, Banana Oatmeal Cookies (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Hi all – it’s surely been a while!

Today, I’m back with a simple and healthy cookie recipe. Just FIVE ingredients  – all REAL and zero JUNK.

Grab a few with coffee for quick on-the-go breakfast. Pairs well with tea for an after dinner treat. Great for the kiddos, too!

Banana Oatmeal Cookies


RECIPE   **makes 21 cookies**


3 very ripe, large bananas (or four small)

2 cups oatmeal (quick or rolled & gluten-free)

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans)

1/2 dried goji berries (or other dried fruit)


Pre-heat oven to 350º. Peel and mash bananas in bowl. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well so all the batter is evenly moist. Line cooking tray with parchment paper. Scoop batter forming golf ball-sized cookies. Place on tray and press down lightly to flatten. Bake for 10 minutes. Rotate tray and bake for another 10 minutes. Store in refrigerator or freeze extras.
