  • 3 medium to large ripe bananas
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats, not instant for this recipe
  • 3/4 cups dates, cut into small pieces
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil plus 1 teaspoon (I used grapeseed but any mild oil is fine. I wouldn’t use olive oil in this recipe.)
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut or brown sugar, leave out or add more to taste
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda, make sure it's fresh, this is very important
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea or kosher salt
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips or more if you like them really chippy


  1. 1.Preheat oven to 360 degrees, that’s right, not 350. It makes a difference. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

    2.In a large bowl, mash the bananas until most clumps are out and looks pretty smooth. Add the oats and let sit for a minute or two.

    3.Now add the rest of the ingredients except the chips. Check for sweetness first then add sugar to taste.

    4.Fold in the chips and place in fridge for about 20 minutes.

    5.Take out of fridge and with a small cookie scoop,make 24 mounds. Press down a little with wet fingers to flatten.

    6.Bake for about 20- 25 minutes or until cookies are brown on the bottom and around the edges and look somewhat crispy around the edges. Take out and cool on a wire rack. Enjoy this healthy, yummy treat anytime of day. Enjoy!
