Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Soft and chewy Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. They taste just like a slice of banana bread but in cookie form!


These cookies are the best of both worlds. They taste just like banana bread, with a hint of oatmeal cookies and loaded with gooey melted chocolate chips. I think I just found my new favorite cookie!

This is a great way to use up leftover banana. The banana also helps to soften the cookie and allows us to use only a half a stick of butter not a whole stick.



There is ton’s of banana flavor in this cookie and the oats add a nice chewy texutre. It tastes just like banana bread but in cookie form!

Soft and chewy on the inside and firm around the edges.

I added some cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg to the batter for some extra flavor. You can even add in some raisins or nuts!


Best of all these cookies only take 30 minutes to make! No chilling or resting time needed!

    Ooh my gosh! These cookies are ridiculous. They look beautiful, they taste amazing, they are soft and chewy, sweet with just the right amount of banana flavor. Thank you so much for sharing. This is a keeper and one to share.

    • Hi Alicia,

      I have not tried doing this myself so it is hard to say. I know you can bake these and freeze them though. I hope that helps.

      Thank you!

    So I had some ripe bananas and decided to give this recipe a try. Since I had 2 bananas I just doubled it. I added walnuts and coconut to the mixture as well, just because. 🙂 They turned out great! Very much like banana bread in a cookie form. Slightly crispy on the outside but moist on the inside. Very enjoyable. Thanks for the recipe Kelley.
