Enjoying Life one RUN at a Time

Four Ingredient Banana Oat Cookies and Other Randomness 


Saturday afternoon, I was craving something sweet. I didn’t want anything too sugary, but just sweet enough to cure my craving.

I looked around my house for ingredients and decided to whip up a batch of experimental cookies. I was surprisingly pleased with how they turned out, so I thought I would share the recipe with you.


These are dairy, gluten, and refined sugar free, but they don’t lack in flavor. 

Four Ingredient Banana Oat Cookies  

  • 2-3 Large, ripe bananas  
  • 3 Pitted dates 
  • 1 1/2 c. Oats 
  • Optional, but highly encouraged add in: 1/3 c. Dark chocolate chips.


Method: 

Put bananas, 1 c. Oats, and dates in blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.

Stir in the extra 1/2 c. oats and chocolate chips into the mixture until it is thick enough to form into balls. 

Press balls (golf ball size) onto baking sheet and slightly flatten with hands. (They won’t flatten themselves.) 

Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until they are golden brown.   

Enjoy warm or cold.
