Ingredients

  • 2 overripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil liquid
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax optional
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups quick oats
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix bananas, coconut oil, and peanut butter with a hand or stand mixer until combined. Mix in sugar, egg, baking soda, vanilla, and flax. Mix in flour and oats and blend until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Scoop 2 tablespoon sized cookies onto your baking sheet. Flatten slightly with the palm of your hand (they will not flatten by themselves while baking). Bake for about 10 minutes until they start to get golden brown. Cool before removing from cookie sheet.
