Banana Oat Cookies

Hi guys! I hope you’ve had a nice week. I have a new recipe for you that is so easy it’s hard to believe!

I love these cookies, they are the perfect snack before a run and can even sub as a quick breakfast if you’re running late! I also snack on them in between work and dinner,  and as a after dinner treat. These cookies are so healthy you don’t have to feel bad about indulging at anytime of the day! Did I mention they clock in at about 26 calories a cookie?

Banana Oat CookiesFor these cookies you only need: 1 ripe banana, 1 cup of old fashioned oats, and ground cinnamon to sprinkle on top. Can’t beat that right?!

CIMG1320First things first, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. To make the cookies put the banana and 1 cup of oats in a mixing bowl.

CIMG1322Mix it up with your hands. Be sure to mix well so the banana gets broken up.

CIMG1323Form the banana oat mixture into cookies. You should get about 12 small cookies. I like to flatten them out a little with my fingers.

CIMG1326Sprinkle the tops with ground cinnamon. Bake for 15 minutes. Your house will smell incredible!!

CIMG1334Remove from the oven. They’re awesome right out of the oven!

Let the cookies cool completely before you store them. The cookies will stay fresh on the counter in a airtight container for 3-4 days. After that, I would keep them in the refrigerator or freeze!

I hope you all enjoy this healthy and easy treat!

Form the banana oat mixture into about 12 cookies. Flatten the cookies slightly with fingertips. Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with ground cinnamon. I like to use a decent amount of cinnamon!

Bake for 15 minutes.

Enjoy right away!

Allow the cookies to cool completely before storing in a airtight container. Cookies will keep on the counter for 3-4 days. They will have a longer life in the refrigerator and freezer, if they last you that long!
