3 Ingredient Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

This week I am doing one of my favorite themes for BM and it is the 3 ingredients recipe. I simply love working with minimal ingredients. This 3 Ingredient Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies works especially great when you have a sweet tooth and looking for something to eat as an after dinner snack.

I would not just make these 3 Ingredient Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies as a dessert because this will be a great choice for breakfast and snack as well. It has no added sugar and you can use any chocolate of your choice. We could skip the chocolate and use raisins in place. I was thinking of adding raisins, but my boys wanted the chocolate and hence I changed the plans and made it with chocolate instead.

It would help to use a very ripe banana for this 3 Ingredient Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. I am sure we all have a couple of them hanging from our fruit basket. At least I do, most of the time. I end up freezing them to make smoothies or make Banana Bread.

I used quick oats and semi sweet chocolate chip cookies. The mini chocolate chip would have worked great for the smaller size cookies that I made. Butterscotch chips or peanut butter chips are also a good alternate to use.

Procedure to make 3 Ingredient Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies –

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350 F. Layer a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, mash the banana. Overripe bananas work the best and since the cookies have no added sugar, it helps in adding sweetness.
  • Add about 1/2 cup of oats and the chocolate chip and mix. If the mixture appears too wet, add more oatmeal to bring it to right consistency. We should be able to gather it up and shape it.
