Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies

Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies
Serves: 12-16 cookies
Prep Time: 15 m
Cook Time: 30 m


  • 2 medium – banana
  • 1 cup – applesauce, unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon – vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon – cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cup – oats, dry
  • 1/3 cup – raisins, seedless
  • 1/4 cup – walnuts, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Mash bananas with the back of a fork until creamy (the riper the better!). Set aside.
  3. Add applesauce to a mixing bowl, then stir in mashed bananas, vanilla, and cinnamon.
  4. Fold in remaining ingredients and let set for 10 minutes.
  5. Drop cookie dough by spoonfuls onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet, then flatten cookies into rounds. (The batter should yield about 16 regular size cookies, 12 if you're wanting them a bit bigger.)
  6. Bake approximately 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Remove from oven and let rest on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before moving to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  8. Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.
You know your kids will want to try it if you call it a breakfast COOKIE! The raisins can be replaced with dried cranberries, and 2/3 cup puréed mango may be used instead of the bananas if preferred; if using the mango, you may want to add a bit of sugar, honey, or other sweetener to the mix.

My son loved these!! We have made them twice. the second time, we added plain Greek yogurt in addition to all the other ingredients. Turns out really moist.

Amy says:

Thanks Toni! We’re glad he liked them!

Rochelle says:

I forgot to buy parchment paper. Hoping these will work on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray instead.

Amy says:

It should be fine if you spray it well! Let us know!

Rochelle says:

Well they didn’t stick or anything, but I’m thinking I didn’t cook them long enough. Are they supposed to be crunchy like a cookie or doughy like a muffin? They turned out ok, but a different consistency then I anticipated. It’s only the second recipe I’ve tried, so I’m sure it’s a “user error” 🙂

Amy says:

Yes, mine were kind of cakey too. So, you did it right.

Jennifer says:

I feel kind of silly asking this….like it should be obvious….but, do I put them in the oven still on the parchment paper?

Amy says:

Yes! You bake them on the parchment paper. Totally oven safe.
