Banana Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies: New Recipe from “My Beef With Meat”

I love bananas, I love oats, and I love peanut butter. So does Jane’s 13 year-old daughter, Crile, who ate seven of these in one sitting. Teenage approval. That says a lot about how good these cookies are.

  • Serves 15

3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 tablespoon vanilla
¾ cup natural chunky peanut butter
3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 cups old fashioned oats
½ cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt (optional)
½ cup non-dairy chocolate chips or raisins

*to make gluten free eliminate whole wheat flour


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper

Mix bananas, vanilla, peanut butter and maple syrup into a creamy consistency in a large bowl

In another bowl, combine oats, flour, baking powder and salt

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until they are well combined -the batter should be slightly sticky

Fold in the chocolate chips or raisins

Place rounded, heaping tablespoon-sized balls of the batter onto an ungreased baking sheet

    I have vanilla extract. If I was to use, would I put the same amount (1 tablespoon) in or would I reduce the amount, since it calls for 1 tablespoon of JUST vanilla? Thank you

    I assume by “omitting” the wheat flour for gluten free, that means replace with a gf flour (like GF oat flour or chickpea flour)? or omit entirely?

  • Trailmomma

    I just made these last night! They are amazing and I made them gluten free by subbing with all purpose gf flour although next time I might try gf oat flour or even some garbanzo bean flour to up the nutrition!

    why do use parchment paper when the recipe says “ungreased cookie sheet ?

    • Francisco Leyva

      because if you use an UNGREASED (no grease, butter, oil in cookie sheet) the cookie will stick, but if you use the parchment paper, they will not stick.

    Ive tried them and loved them! I am a peanutbutter/banana fanatic!!
    Instead of using wheat flour, i just added another cup of oats.. works well, less cookie like, and more of an oat pattie.. great breakfast ;)

    can i sub the peanut butter with almond butter? Also are they soft or can be crunchy? My hubby does not like soft cookies and i was wondering with 3 bananas they will be for sure soft.

    • Cathy

      I’ve used almond butter and it works fine. They are soft cookies, but if you flatten them and make them very thin, they come out less soft and almost crunchy, but not quite.

    It does takes time to get used to eat plant only food. At the beginning I tossed lots of food, but I believed that this diet was good for me so I kept going. After a while you will enjoy it , it’s all mental . You can change your thinking , but you need to be motivated and believe it! Now it’s easy and I enjoy so many recipes!
