Irresistible Gooey Oat Cookies

Makes 12 cookies

vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar-free option



  • 2 cups of rolled oats
  • 2 pieces of large ripe bananas
  • Optional: 1 tsp of pure vanilla bean, ground
  • ½ tsp of ground cinnamon, unsweetened
  • Large pinch of ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of Himalayan salt
  • 2 TBSP of almond butter
  • Optional: 2 TBSP of rice malt syrup (the are sweet enough without the added syrup but I recommend you add it in if using very dark chocolate chips or if you are used to eating a lot of sugar or sweet things to help your taste buds transition)

Possible Variations:

  • Instead of using 2 cups + 2 TBSP of rolled oats use 2 cups of oats and 2 TBSP of desiccated unsweetened coconut or 1 TBSP of chia seeds
  • Add in dark chocolate chips



  1. Line your baking tray with baking paper and pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Mash your banana and combine with your peanut butter and spices in a large bowl.
  3. Add your rolled oats and if using, desiccated coconut or chia seeds rice malt syrup, and salt.
  4. Stir well until well combined and batter forms.
  5. Fold under chocolate chips if using.
  6. Pour large spoonfuls of your cookie dough onto your prepared baking tray and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and smelling irresistible.
