Welcome to our latest recipe adventure, where simplicity meets sweetness in our Healthy 4 Ingredient Banana Oatmeal Raisin Cookies!

Units Scale
  • 2 Ripe Bananas Mashed
  • 1 cup of Rolled Oats
  • 1/4 cup of Raisins
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • Optional Peanut Butter Filling - 2 Tablespoons of Peanuts Butter and 2 Tablespoons of Whipped Cream


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°degree F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mash the Bananas: In a large mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas until smooth.
  3. Add the Oats: Add the rolled oats to the mashed banana and stir with a rubber spatula until well combined. If desired, mix in the cinnamon for added flavor.
  4. Fold in the Raisins: Gently fold the raisins into the banana-oat mixture until evenly distributed.
  5. Shape the Cookies: Using a spoon or cookie scoop, portion out the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between each cookie.
  6. Bake: Place the baking tray in the preheated oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly golden brown around the edges.
  7. Cool and Enjoy: Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy these delicious and nutritious banana oat cookies with raisins as a snack or dessert!


  • Choose Perfectly Ripened Bananas: Opt for brown bananas when making your cookies. Their sweetness enhances the flavor and texture of the final product.
  • Mash Bananas Thoroughly: Ensure you mash the bananas until smooth to evenly distribute their natural sweetness throughout the cookie dough.
  • Experiment with Nut Butters: Elevate your cookies by incorporating natural creamy almond butter, cashew butter, or sunflower seed butter for added richness and depth of flavor.
  • Balancing Sweetness with Maple Syrup: While the sweetness of ripe bananas is key, you can further enhance the flavor profile by adding a touch of maple syrup for a nuanced sweetness.
  • Mindful Mixing: When combining ingredients, mix gently until just incorporated. Overmixing can result in dense cookies.
  • Use Old-Fashioned Oats: Opt for old-fashioned oats rather than quick oats for a heartier texture in your cookies.
  • Prevent Cookie Spread: To maintain the shape of your cookies during baking, chill the dough in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before scooping onto baking sheets.
  • Storage in Airtight Containers: Once cooled, store your cookies in an airtight container to preserve their freshness and prevent them from becoming stale.
  • Layer with Parchment: If stacking cookies in the container, layer them with parchment paper to prevent sticking and preserve their texture.
  • Enjoy Fresh or Frozen: These cookies make the perfect companion to your morning coffee or afternoon tea. For longer-term storage, freeze them in a sealed container for up to three months. Simply thaw at room temperature or briefly warm in the oven for a freshly baked taste anytime!
