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.

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


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.


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.

  • 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


  • 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.


  • 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. 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!

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

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

  4. I tried theses and put protein powder in and they taste AMAZING thank you so much I will look out for more of youd Recipes.

  5. Does the nutritional information include the chocolate chips?   

  6. So good and easy to make, can’t stop eating them 

  7. I don’t like peanut butter can you substitute it with something else?

  8. These were so easy and quick to make that I will surely do this often. Thank you for the ideas which will get us to eat less sugary “stuff” since everything seems to have an over abundance of sugar anyway. I did add dried cranberries and , for once, my husband thought they tasted great! Now he wants to try doing it himself. Yay!!

  9. Do you have any no bake oatmeal cookie recipes w/o peanut butter in the recipe? I have a nut allergy.

  10. These are sooooooo delicious! So easy to make and perfectly sweet. Instead of peanut butter I used homemade almond butter.  I liked the soft texture and really easy to reheat! 

  11. Delicious! I appreciate that they are not very sweet. I did use quick cook oats because that’s all I had. Very easy to make. I will definitely make again. Thanks for the recipe.
