Chocolate Chip Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies Recipe Is Like Dessert But Healthy

Cookies for breakfast? Yep, it's a thing. And, it's a great thing! I was inspired to create these banana nut chocolate chip breakfast cookies after trying this easy and delicious recipe for two-ingredient breakfast cookies that seriously rocked my world.

Who knew you could make healthy, gluten-free breakfast cookies with just two ingredients? Not me. But, I didn’t stop there. So here’s my enhanced version, including chocolate and nuts, that’s more like dessert but healthy!

This chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe is loaded with nutritious oats and bananas. Here's what you will need to make these easy breakfast cookies: bananas, quick oats, cinnamon, peanut butter, walnuts and chocolate chips. Simple, wholesome and delicious!

Serve these low-sodium cookies for breakfast with a side of fruit (they're great on the go), or for dessert with coffee or tea. You could even serve them as a snack with milk anytime during the day (guilt free)!

Recipe Notes

  • The number of cookies will depend on how much batter you use for each cookie.
  • I used chunky peanut butter, but you could use regular peanut butter or other nut butter, if desired. 
  • Dark chocolate may have the most health benefits, but you can use any type of chocolate chips you prefer.
  • You could leave out the walnuts, if desired.
  • You may need more or less oats to make the batter thick enough, to your preference. I used gluten-free oats.
  • If you want to be sure these cookies are gluten-free, be sure to check the packages you buy (but oats are naturally gluten-free).
  • Serve these cookies with a side of fresh fruit, coffee, milk or just by themselves.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container.

Here's how to make them:

  1. Mash the bananas. Stir in the oats, adding enough to make a thick, not runny, batter.
  2. Add the cinnamon, peanut butter, walnuts and chocolate chips. Stir to combine.
  3. Drop heaping tablespoons full of the mixture onto a greased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 15 minutes. Serve with fruit, coffee, milk or just on their own!
