Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I've confessed it before, but I love baking cookies. Especially ones like these Healthy Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip ones. They just make me so happy!

Not only are cookies like the easiest thing to make ever, but they're also comforting. Your house smells like freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, each warm cookie oozes with melty chocolate. It's pure heaven if you ask me!

And luckily for us, it's just a bonus that these cookies are equally delicious as they are super healthy. And I mean super healthy!

How to make Banana Oatmeal Cookies

How are these Banana Oatmeal Cookies to Healthy?!

First off, these cookies aren't your “standard” cookie. They're more like a blend of baked oatmeal and a cookie. A breakfast cookie if you will. But nevertheless, they are definitely healthy.

These Healthy Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are free from:

  • gluten
  • dairy
  • sugar
  • eggs
  • oil

Yeah…I know. Sounds like they're not going to be very good! But trust me, they are ????

Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

Easy Oatmeal Cookies Without Sugar!

How do we skip out on the sugar you might wonder? We're using bananas!

While yes, technically bananas have sugar, it's good sugar. It's 100% natural, it won't spike your blood sugar too much and it tastes delicious. If you're a banana fan, you're going to LOVE these cookies!

If you're allergic to banana  – which I know a lot of people are – I'm not sure the best substitution honestly. You could try doing a blend of applesauce and nut butter, but I'm not sure if you'd get the same texture. If you do end up trying it though, definitely let me know.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies

Healthy Banana Breakfast Cookies

We've made quite a few breakfast cookies here on the blog and these are a bit different from our other ones. For starters, we're not using a nut butter (but I do recommend slathering them with nut butter afterward).

Second, we are using fewer ingredients. Only 6 ingredients to be exact! These cookies are simply bananas, a flax egg, oats, almond flour, quinoa flakes, and chocolate chips.

And yet they're still definitely breakfast-worthy. I love heating them up in the toaster oven, slathering them with a little peanut butter and sprinkling them with some hemp seeds. It's the ultimate treat. Sweet, satisfying, balanced and healthy.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a small mixing bowl, completely mash the banana. Stir in the flax egg.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and mix until fully combined.
  • Spoon the cookie dough on the cookie sheet, and gently flatten with the back of a spoon.
  • Bake 13 - 15 minutes, until browned and only slightly tender to the touch. Remove from oven, transfer to a wire rack and cool.
  • Store in a covered container for 2 – 3 days (if they last that long!).

  1. I just made these both my toddler and I loved this ! Very healthy and taste so good 😊 not really good at baking but so easy to make as well .
    Thanks for this recipe . Do you know how long these stay good for ?

  2. Hi Alyssa – the video shows peanut butter but I don’t see it on the ingredient list. How much should I add if I want to include it?

  3. Hi there! Absolutely love all your recipes. Can I sub bananas for anything? Just ran out ????.
    Thank you!!

  4. Hi Alyssa
    Your Healthy Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe looks great. I clicked the link on the chocolate chips and checked out Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Morsels – do you know they contain CANE SUGAR (I had to scroll WAY down the bottom)? And at a likely percentage of 31% (as they’re 69% cacao)?! This probably means the stated % of sugar in your recipe is more than the 3% (I’m surprised the 2 bananas alone aren’t more than that) listed in the nutrition table, as well as contradicting your claim that they are free from (added) sugar. Hope you are able to find a better substitute, or at least adjust your post to reflect the real sugar content. ???? Anne

    • Hi Anne – unfortunately with the plugin I have I am not able to choose specific ones which is why I just say “chocolate chips”!

    • You could try, but you’d need to adjust the quantities since coconut flour is totally different than almond flour!
