Soft-baked, hearty Banana Breakfast Cookies made in under 25 minutes with easy ingredients like bananas, oats, peanut butter, and coconut. Kids love these, and parents love that they're packed with whole grains, fiber and protein! These lower sugar cookies are foolproof and totally satisfy your sweet tooth without any butter or flour. 


Units Scale
  • 3 small overripe bananas*
  • 1/3 cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs (can sub flax eggs)
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats (certified gluten free if needed)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line an extra large sheet pan (or 2 half sheet pans) with parchment paper.
  2. Mash bananas in a large mixing bowl. Measure to make sure you have 1 heaping cup. Add peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.
  3. Add oats, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, coconut, chocolate chips, and hemp seeds. Whisk until combined.
  4. Use a spoon to drop mounds of batter onto the baking sheet. The batter will be pretty wet, unlike traditional cookie dough. You'll get 20 cookies. 
  5. Bake for 13-14 minutes, or until golden and set. (If using 2 sheet pans, bake one at a time.) Cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes and devour! Store leftovers in an airtight container on the counter for 2 days then refrigerate or freeze leftovers.
