These 2 ingredient banana oatmeal cookies are delicious breakfast cookies. They don’t contain any flour or refined sugar, but they still taste like soft, sweet cookies.
Bananas and quick oats are all you need for the cookies. If you want some variation, you can add chocolate chips, nuts, or dried fruit.
I came across 2 ingredient banana cookies recently, though they’ve been popular on the internet for a few years. I tested out several variations before producing a version I really like, which I’m sharing with you now.
The cookies are firm on the outside and soft inside. They taste of oats and bananas and are great for an on-the-go breakfast.

2 Ingredient Banana Oatmeal Cookies
- 1 cup quick oats (see note)
- 1 large overripe banana mashed to a liquid-like consistency
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips or other add-ins of your choice optional
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with silicone baking mat.
- In a large bowl, add oats and mashed bananas. Mix with a fork until it becomes an evenly mixed, thick batter. If you plan on using add-ins like chocolate chips, mix them into the cookie batter at this time.
- Make 8 round balls out of the cookie batter. Place onto baking sheet, spacing about 2 inches apart. Gently press down on each ball so that it flattens into a round disc. Cookies will not spread much during baking, so keep that in mind when shaping and flattening your discs.
- Bake for about 15 minutes or until cookies are lightly brown and set. Cookie bottoms should also be brown and easily come off baking sheet. Let cookies cool before eating. Store uneaten cookies in the fridge.
- Please use quick oats because old fashioned and steel-cut oats need more time to cook.
- Nutrition estimate does not include add-ins like chocolate chips.
