One of our favorite cookies to make are my 3-Ingredient Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies. They are perfectly crunchy and chewy and so quick and easy to make. However, sometimes I want easy treat AND healthy in the same time. Enter these 3-Ingredient Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies! These cookies are naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar and oil-free. So tasty! If you love oatmeal with bananas and chocolate – you will love these cookies!
These 3-Ingredient Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are perfect for lunchboxes, great packed for road trips, and make for a satisfying treat without the guilt. They are chewy, naturally sweet and filled with chocolate chips. Make sure to use vegan chocolate to keep them 100% vegan. You can use dried fruit in place of chocolate chips.

This is one of the easiest cookie recipes you will make! Simply, mash two bananas, add oats and chocolate chip and stir in. Chill the dough in the fridge while your oven preheats. Bake cookies for 15 to 20 minutes and cool before serving. These cookies do not spread and will bake thick if simply scooped and dropped onto the sheet. I like to flatten them just a bit.
These cookies are chewy and thick. The longer you bake them, the more chance the edges will crisp up, especially the mashed banana part. Obviously, they won’t have the texture or taste of cookies baked with flour and sugar, so keep that in mind. However, these cookies are very satisfying if you are looking for a sweet-tasting treat that’s healthy. You can use different add-ons in place of chocolate chips for more texture.
The base of the recipe is the mashed banana and oats mixture. You can bake it just like that, without the chocolate chips OR you can make lots of variations: dark chocolate chunk, white chocolate and coconut, dried fruit, etc.
