Chewy Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Chewy Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Out of the blue, I decided to try and make something out of bananas. I’ve been buying and eating bananas for a few weeks now and they’re much healthier to munch on than buying Jollibee when I get the munchies late at night. So I made this chewy banana oatmeal cookies.

I think I saw a recipe a couple of weeks ago and I looked for no-bake cookie recipes, since we don’t have an oven, but this was mostly just an experiment.

Chewy Banana Oatmeal Cookies

I took 2 medium sized bananas and  mashed them in a bowl.

I added about half a cup of oatmeal and mixed thoroughly. Since the mixture was too wet, I added some more and ended up with like a full cup.

I added a spoonful of butter, I know it’s contradicting to the healthy mixture I’m trying to achieve, but I added it so it won’t stick to the foil when I “toast” it.

I pre-heated the toaster for 2 minutes. Hahaha. Scooped up small balls and laid them on the tin with foil. Flattened them a bit to look like cookies. I set the toaster to 5 minutes and set them aside to cool.

The cookies turned out soft and chewy and very tasty. The bananas I used were very ripe and sweet. I figured I could have maybe let it cook for 10 minutes, but I was scared of overcooking it. The great thing with this super easy recipe is that I can always make them again and experiment with cooking time and maybe adding other ingredients to the mix.

    Well, toasting is sort of baking. But this looks very appealing Nickle! Lemme try it out, I’ve been looking for ways to make oatmeal more interesting.

      Hahahaha! It just proves I know nothing about cooking and terminology. We used to have an oven, I used it once, then we gave it away when we moved to the south. We only have microwave and toaster now, so the recipes I find that involved oven just makes me sad. 🙁

      They really are super easy! I’m too lazy to make anything that takes more time to create than when I eat it.

    That would be a healthy snack to take to work. I’d try and copy the recipe and experiment with other fruits in season.

      Yeah, I always have the munchies at any time of the day and they’re great. Bananas work great with this kind of project because of its texture, but I’d like to try with other fruits too.

      Hi Karrie! For a healthier option, you can skip the butter. Pwede din sya kainin as is, I think wala namang masama don. Microwave? Yung tita ko minicrowave nya daw.

    Thanks for sharing! 😀 This sounds perfect with black coffee. Btw, what’s the brand of oatmeal you used? Is it the instant kind? Because I usually have the rolled oats stocked and they’re bigger, and also takes time to cook.

      Yes, it’s the instant kind. I used to store them in the office for afternoon snack when I get hungry. 😀
