  • ripe bananas 2 (340g unpeeled or 200g peeled)
  • rolled oats 200g
  • caster sugar 50g
  • coconut oil or butter 50g, melted
  • chocolate chips 50g
  • plain flour to dust hands


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line a large baking tray with non-stick parchment paper. In a large bowl mash the bananas until smooth. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and stir until they are all combined. Leave to sit for 10 mins – this is to let it soak into the oats.

  • Step 2

    Roll 1 tbsp of the mix into a ball in floured hands and place on the baking tray, pressing down slightly so they are around 1cm thick. Repeat with the rest of the mix, spacing them 1-2cm apart. You will make about 20 cookies.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 12–15 mins until golden brown. Transfer to a rack until cooled.
