Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Mash the bananas and combine them with the oats and peanut butter in a large mixing bowl. Mix well. Fold in chocolate chips.
Drop bite-sized spoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Until lightly brown. Let the cookies cool 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire cooling rack.
Store uneaten cooking in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
Serving and Storing - Serve immediately as an afternoon snack. These cookies are super healthy and the kids love them. Store uneaten cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
- Make sure to use very ripe bananas. This adds sweetness to the recipe. Ripe bananas are also easier to incorporate into the batter.
- I use natural peanut butter which tends to be looser than conventional peanut butter. If you are using conventional peanut butter, consider adding ¼--½ more banana.
- These cookies are delicious on their own but also make a great base for so many add-in options. A few of my favorite add-ins are raisins, chia seeds, nuts, and vanilla extract.
- If you have a peanut allergy, you can swap it out for any other kind of nut butter
- For gluten-free cookies, make sure to look for gluten-free oats.
