Ingredients you’ll need

Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these cookies. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.

  • Plain/all-purpose flour
  • Porridge oats
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Ground nutmeg
  • Unsalted butter
  • Light brown sugar
  • Caster/granulated sugar
  • Large egg
  • Large banana
  • Vanilla extract
  • Chocolate chips

How to make Chocolate Chip Banana Oatmeal Cookies

To make these cookies, simply whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices.

In another bowl, whisk together the melted butter, sugars, egg, mashed banana, and vanilla.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and mix until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Roll the dough into 1.5oz balls, and place them onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or silicone mat. The dough will be quite sticky, but you should be able to roll it.

Bake for 12 – 14 minutes until the cookies are firm and golden brown around the edges.

Allow to cool on the baking tray for 5 – 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.

These Chocolate Chip Banana Oatmeal Cookies are:

  • super quick and easy to make
  • deliciously thick, soft, and chewy
  • stuffed full of chocolate chips

Can I use a different add-in in these cookies? Yes! I’ve made these cookies with chopped nuts and they are absolutely delicious. I bet half chocolate chips, half chopped nuts is even better.

How long will these cookies last? These cookies will stay fresh, kept in an airtight container, at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 1 week. The banana keeps these cookies soft for days!

Can I freeze these cookies? Sure! Keep them in an airtight container, and freeze them for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge.

Do you prefer freshly-baked cookies every time? Cookie dough balls can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days, or frozen for up to 3 months. Bake from frozen. You’re welcome. 🙂

Great recipe, Marsha! I followed everytihng as is and the result was 'breadier' than what I had imagined -- any recommendations on how to make these even chewier? Thanks! :)

Hi Megan! Without testing, I cannot give big recipe changes. But you can try using all brown sugar, which would result in a chewier cookie. Enjoy! :)
