Healthy Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies.

 Gone are the days when I crave cookies and go look outside and buy - like from Subway and other places - because cookies that are too sweet are just a no-go. 

I know of people who particularly want sweet cookies, and yes cookies need to be sweet, if not tak sedap okay. Don't know what has gotten into me also, because I've been trying to eat healthier. Heh. I can almost hear Adrian laughing at me saying that. Hah. 

It's true la okay. 

The keyword is 'I try'. 

I was scrolling through recipes on Instagram and I saw the photo of these healthy cookies and looked at the recipes, and they are so simple!

So simple I decided to try it the next day! 

It's flourless and sugarless - so if you have bananas (better if overripe), rolled oats, and peanut butter, then you are set to go! It's so easy, quick,, and healthy!

Also, according to the website where I found this recipe, this recipe is vegan, gluten-free, oil-free, sugar-free, and naturally sweetened! "Nutritious enough to have it for breakfast". 

Here are the recipes and there is a video that you can watch too :) 

These measurements are meant to make about 60 regular size cookies okay, so if you would like to make lesser than that, then just divide all the number by half. 

If not, you can always make more and give them to your friends. I realized kids somehow love the cookies more than adults - because it's really very healthy kind okay. 


  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups of mashed banana (about 5-6 big ones)
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter
  • 2/3 chocolate chip (optional)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 tsp salt 


  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees. Line a baking sheet over a baking pan. 
  2. In a large bowl, mix together mashed bananas, peanut butter, vanilla extra, cinnamon, and salt. 
  3. Add rolled oats and chocolate chips (or cranberries - optional) and mix until all is combined. 
  4. Scoop the dough into the baking pan and flatten it. 
  5. Bake for 15-minutes (for cherry texture). Anything more than 17-minutes will make the cookies quite hard. 
  6. Let it cool and enjoy! 

You can choose not to add the peanut butter if you want to be extremely healthy or something, but the peanut butter I feel makes it a lot nicer! Also, you can omit the chocolate chips. It's really very simple and you really can be flexible with any ingredients you want to add in. 

I tried making smaller versions but 15-minutes seems to be too long for them. So, I stayed with the regular size and 15-minutes is just ngam! :)

Enjoy this little quick video to see how it was done! 

Till next baking session, bye now.
