Healthy 3-Ingredient Oat Cookies!

Hi Everyone,

Last week I opened my fridge to see three full boxes of oats that I hadn’t even touched. Oats are a staple in my family and I use it for smoothies, breakfast bowls, fruit parfaits and the likes. So, with more to spare than what I really needed, I tinkered with a recipe I had in mind for a while: an easy as pie 3-ingredient cookie recipe that will use up some of the oats.

This recipe is fabulously delicious and easy to make! I made about 10 of these and didn’t even create a dent in my overload of oats.

Oats are some of the healthiest grains on earth with vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals. With really satisfying macronutrient contents, oats very nutrient-dense and ideal for a healthy diet.

Along with oats, this recipe calls for bananas, too. Bananas are the perfect substitute for butter, sugar, and eggs with much healthier nutrients.

With that in mind, here’s what you need to make 10 medium sized banana-oat cookies!

  1. 1 & 1/4 cup oats (instant or otherwise)
  2. 3 small plantains or 1 large banana
  3. 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to gas mark 1 (145C)
  2. Mash the banana until very few lumps remain
  3. Add the oats and vanilla extract
  4. Mix until well combined
  5. Spoon dollops of the mixture on to a lined tray
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and crisp while the middle is chewy to the touch

I added some toppings to oomph up the taste with some dark chocolate and protein powder – these turned out to be delicious. You can add cinnamon or any other flavors you like to take it to a whole different level!

These cookies are yes in my book for a quick guilt-less snack! They’re 61 calories each (pictured below) and your macros are 10.5C/2P/1F!

Hope you guys enjoy the recipe!

All my love,
