3-Ingredient Banana Oatmeal Cookies Recipe: A Sweet Clean-Eating Recipe

"Three basic ingredients create a surprisingly good little treat!" says Rachel Maser, mom of four and founder/creator of the clean eating blog, Clean Food Crush®. This three-ingredient banana oatmeal cookies recipe is "ooey gooey and as easy as can be!"

Rachel makes these easy oatmeal cookies often at her house as after-school snack and even a quick grab-go breakfast once in a while. "Seems like we always have a few overly ripe bananas sitting on the counter and old-fashioned oats in the pantry. This is another budget-friendly recipe to help bulk up your family meals anytime you want to stretch your trips to the store. It’s such a quick and easy recipe, too!"

The simple banana chocolate chip cookies make a nutritious dessert, too. Store any leftover cookies in the fridge for up to five days in a sealed container. "I love storing a stash of these in the freezer (up to two months) because I love to eat them slightly frozen."

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
