I have been making a lot of oatmeal recipes lately. I just can’t seem to stop. My latest are these 4 ingredient flourless peanut butter oatmeal cookies. These cookies are similar to my 2 ingredient banana oatmeal cookies. While I love making those cookies, a few people found them to be a little too plain. This version adds more flavor and they have a chewier texture.

Ingredients

  • Bananas
  • Peanut Butter
  • Rolled Oats
  • Add-In of Your Choice (chocolate chips, dried cranberries or other dried fruit)

Bananas

You want very ripe or overripe bananas so that you can mash them down just like you would for banana bread.

Peanut Butter

Use creamy natural peanut butter with no added sugar. This peanut butter will be easier to stir and mix into the batter.

Add-Ins

As you can see from the photos, I used chocolate chips. But if you want to make them even healthier, I would use dried fruit like dried cranberries, blueberries or cherries. You should try to use something sweet because the cookies are not very sweet on their own since there is no added sugar.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (approximately 3 small bananas)
  • 1/2 cup natural creamy peanut butter unsweetened
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or dried fruit

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl add bananas and peanut butter. Stir until evenly mixed. Add in oats. Stir until evenly combined.
  • Add in chocolate chips or dried fruit. Stir until evenly combined.
  • Using a 1 ½ tbsp cookie scoop, scoop cookie batter and place onto prepared cookie sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Use the palm of your hand to press down and flatten cookie. Cookies will not spread during baking so shape the cookie batter to your desired cookie shape.
  • Bake cookies about 10 minutes or until set. Let cookies cool completely before removing from baking sheets.

Notes

  • Slightly adapted from The Big Man's World
  • Make sure to thoroughly mash your bananas. You should not have any large chunks.
  • If you want to make your cookies prettier, you can save half of the chocolate chips and place them on top of the cookie after it is flattened.

  1. Can I skip the peanut butter due to peanuts allergy. What can I replace with?

  2. Haven’t tried this one, but it looks great. My only comment is regarding your use of the term, BATTER ….more appropriate for cookies is dough….let’s save batter for cakes, etc

  3. I am definitely making the chocolate chip cookies. They look delicious. The recipe is simple, easy to follow plus healthy which is a bonus. Thank you so much. I love your website

  4. Any suggestions on what to use instead of peanut butter? Which is an allergen

  5. Have you tried this with anything besides peanut butter? Would almond butter work? Would like to adapt this for my daughter with allergies. Thanks!

  6. Very yummy! I did add a pinch of salt, 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the recipe just to add to the “sweetness” also it makes the house smell great. I understand that a 7 ingredient recipe just doesn’t have the same ring to it though! The kiddies in my house gobbled them up! Great recipe! Thank you.?

  7. Thank you! I can’t wait to try these.

  8. Can the banana be replaced with something else?

  9. These look terrific but I’m allergic to bananas. Is there a substitute I can use?

  10. Whoa!!! Deelish! What a simple, healthy recipe. I made them with mini choc chips and they are to die for. Thanks so much!

  11. These are very good but not sweet enough for my husband who has a sweet tooth. Do you know if adding a little stevia would work in this recipe? Thank you

  12. Turned out really well. Thanks for the recipe. Added some cinnamon and nutmeg powder as well. Loved the fact that it was super filling.

  13. Just made these last night. I have gluten free and vegan friends that I love to bless with goodies. Of course, I love my sweets and am always eager to have healthy indulgences myself.
    I am super pleased with these cookies! I had 3 very VERY ripe bananas and I used almond butter (because that’s what I had on hand). Mixed well, added the rolled oats and chocolate chips. The batter was thick enough not to run, and soft enough to flatten with my fingers. I baked them for about 14 minutes since I had both lined cookie sheets in the oven and rotated them halfway through.
    Texture is perfect and the flavor is delicious! Thank you for the recipe!

  14. They were so delicious.. Thank you for the recipe..

  15. Its delicious! I used almond batter instead of peanut butter and it tasted great! Just one question: how many grams is one cookie?

  16. I tried this recipe. Although it wasn’t as sweet as someone might think a cookie should be, it was very tasty. I made some for my vegan friend, with dark Chocolate chips. He thought they were spectacular! 

  17. Excellent! I just added a bit of cinnamon into the batter, and Fleur de sel on top of each cookie prior to baking. I’m always looking for snacks to bring when I’m cycling, and this is my new go-to snack!
    Thank you for the recipe.
    ?

  18. How do you suggest they are stored? Airtight container in the fridge? They are still quite moist in the centre once baked. 

  19. Does it matter if the rolled oats are old fashioned or quick cooking? Which is better to use?

  20. Yummy and healthy (works fine with regular PB too- just stir longer) 

    Next time I might try other nut butters! Thanks!

  21. Yummy and healthy (works fine with regular PB too- just stir longer) 

    Just sweet enough with the add ins. I used chopped mixed dried fruit and it was delicious. 

    Next time I might try other nut butters! Thanks!

  22. Is there any alternative way to make these where one could leave out the banana? If so what could be tried?

  23. I am impressed, easy and delicious, the kids love it too
