How to Make Banana Oatmeal Cookies
First off, preheat the oven to 325°F. Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or greased foil.
Now, grab your beautifully ripened bananas, peel and mash them in a large mixing bowl. I recommend using this pastry cutter for easy, thorough mashing. Add the rest of the wet ingredients, then whisk together thoroughly.
Add the oats, baking soda and baking powder. Fold until well mixed. You’ve just made your banana oatmeal cookie dough! Fold in your favorite add-ins.
Grab a cookie scoop like this one, and scoop & drop cookie dough balls onto the prepared baking sheet. Top with add-ins, then flatten with a fork.
Bake, Cool & Enjoy
Bake for about 12 minutes, then cool and enjoy the easiest banana oatmeal cookies!

Tips for the Best Gluten Free Banana Oatmeal Cookies
Mash bananas thoroughly.
Ages ago, before I became very-well acquainted with bananas, I thought you could just lightly mash bananas with a fork and bake any banana recipe. After a few banana recipes, I realized that chunks of banana in my baked goods were not great. Lol.
Make sure to mash bananas thoroughly so you don’t get those weirdly moist chunks and so the amount of wet ingredients (including mashed bananas) in your cookies are well-balanced with the dry ingredients for the perfect banana oatmeal cookie. 😉 For perfectly mashed bananas, [I recommend using this pastry cutter].
Ripen bananas fully.
I know, bananas can take forever and a half to ripen—especially if you bought them green. But trust me, the riper the bananas, the tastier your banana oatmeal cookies. The natural sweetness of your gluten free banana oatmeal cookies will really shine through with yellow bananas that have a good amount of brown spots and are soft to the touch.
Customize with your favorite add-ins.
Feel free to use your favorite add-ins to create the yummiest banana oatmeal cookies! You can use chocolate chips, chopped dried fruit, seeds or chopped nuts!
These are amazing! Added in coconut, walnuts, and chocolate chips. Also added cinnamon and nutmeg. Couldn’t tell how healthy they are! Love that they’re refined sugar free.”
