Hello, fellow food enthusiasts! Today, we're diving into the world of quick and delightful baking with a recipe that embodies simplicity, health, and pure deliciousness - our Easy 3-Ingredient Vegan Banana Oat Cookies.

If you're in search of a wholesome treat that requires minimal effort, features simple ingredients, and satisfies your sweet tooth while aligning with your health goals, you're in for a treat!


Units Scale
  • 2 cups of Quicks Oats
  • 2 1/2 Bananas - over ripe preferred
  • 1/2 cup of Raisins or Chocolate Chips


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Peel your bananas and place them in a large mixing bowl.  Then smash them with a fork
  2. Add 2 cups of oats to your mashed banana mix and stir together.
  3. Next add in your raisins or chocolate chips and blend together.
  4. Grab a large baking sheet pan lined with parchment paper and scoop your cookie dough with a cookie scoop onto the pan. You will have little round dollops which you can bake this way or you can flatten with the bottom of a glass to make a cookie shape. 
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack at room temperature.


  1. Choose Ripe Bananas: Ensure your bananas are ripe for natural sweetness and a moist texture in your cookies.

  2. Opt for Oat Flour: Use oat flour for a gluten-free option or to add a hearty texture. It's rich in fiber and nutrients.

  3. Consider Almond Flour: For a nutty flavor and added nutritional boost, include almond flour in your recipe.

  4. Healthy Fats with Coconut Oil: Substitute traditional fats with coconut oil for a dose of healthy fats that promote satiety.

  5. Almond Butter Magic: Incorporate almond butter for a creamy texture and nutty taste. It's a great source of protein and healthy fats.

  6. Sunflower Seed Butter Option: Swap out almond butter with sunflower seed butter for a nut-free alternative. It adds a unique flavor profile.

  7. Cashew Butter Twist: Another nutty alternative is cashew butter. It brings a buttery richness to the cookies.

  8. Natural Sweeteners: Use mashed bananas and a touch of maple syrup as natural sweeteners instead of added sugars.

  9. Pinch of Salt: Enhance the flavors by adding a pinch of salt. It balances the sweetness and complements the ingredients.

  10. Vanilla Extract Boost: A touch of vanilla extract elevates the overall taste of your cookies. Ensure it's pure vanilla for the best flavor.

  11. Brown Sugar Hint: If you prefer a slightly deeper sweetness, add a bit of brown sugar. It complements the natural sweetness of bananas.

  12. No Added Sugar Focus: Keep your cookies low in added sugar to align with healthy eating goals, especially for those on Weight Watchers.

  13. Whole Wheat Flour Option: For added fiber, consider using whole wheat flour or a mix of whole wheat and oat flours.

  14. Experiment with Flours: Mix different flours like oat and almond for a unique texture and flavor combination.

  15. Vegan Butter Substitute: If you're looking for a buttery taste without animal products, try vegan butter as an alternative.

  16. Freezer-Safe Container: These cookies freeze well, so prepare a batch and store them in a freezer-safe container for convenient, quick breakfast or snacks.

  17. Airtight Sealed Container: Keep your cookies fresh by storing them in an airtight container. This prevents them from drying out.

  18. Meal Prep Friendly: Incorporate these cookies into your meal prep routine for a healthy and convenient snack option.

  19. Extra Cookies for Later: Double the recipe and save extra cookies for those times when you need a wholesome treat on hand.

  20. Mindful Portioning: Even though these cookies are healthy, be mindful of portion sizes. Enjoy them in moderation as part of a balanced diet.
