Quick banana oatmeal breakfast cookies.

I remember that as a child I always dreamt of having dessert as breakfast but with this recipe you can do that guilt free.  The base is really simple: banana or oatmeal but you can also add applesauce or peanut butter according to your taste. Then go nuts (pun intended) with the add ins.


  • One ripe banana
  • 1 cup of oatmeal. Add a bit more if using applesauce
  • Additionally: 1/4the cup of applesauce or 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
  • Optional: chocolate chips, nuts, raisins, shredded coconut,…
  • Spices: Vanilla essence, cinnamon, ginger,…

Mise en place*

  1. Preheat oven to 170°C
  2. Mash banana
  3. Prepare baking tray with baking sheet

Where the magic happens

  1. Mix oatmeal and banana and add ins
  2. Roll dough into balls and then press onto baking sheet
  3. Bake for 10 minutes or until firm

*Mise en place is a term used in cooking which when translated means “putting in place.” These are all the preparations that are done before cooking can take place. I put this in a different section because not only will it save you time and stress, but it helps in decreasing mistakes during cooking.
