Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

img_9320.jpgFor a lazy cook like me, these are definitely the EASIEST cookies I have ever made- not to mention YUMMY! I used olive oil in this instance.

Make sure the bananas are very ripe- the riper the sweeter.

The recipe comes from one of my favorite cooking pages that believes counting colors and not calories. Check her out at Colorful Foodie.  




  1. 2 or 3 overripe bananas
  2. 2 cups of oatmeal
  3. 1/3 cup of any oil
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Prepare cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Mash bananas to a smooth consistency with a fork.

Add all other ingredients and mix well with a wooden spoon.

Divide and conquer cookies – It should give you about 12 servings.

Bake for 20-25 minutes for soft consistency. You may leave them in a little longer if you like them crunchier.
