Healthy 3 Ingredient Gluten-Free Banana Oatmeal Cookies - Honest Mum recipe


oat cookies


Anything that involves 3 ingredients and can be rustled up in minutes gets the thumbs up here.

These delicious banana oatmeal cookies are a hit with the kids and I’ve just eaten two for breakfast on the run! Slow-releasing, these healthy cookies are quick, versatile and the whole family will gobble them up. I literally can’t stop eating them!

All you need is:


  • 2 cups of gluten-free oats (I use half finely milled, half large old-fashioned oats)
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter/dairy-free alternative

You can also add raisins, chocolate chips, desiccated coconut, apricots, dates and some honey if you like your cookies extra sweet. I’m going to add cranberries at Christmas. You can of course make them vegan too if you use a dairy-free spread alternative.


Stir the oats into the mashed banana and pour the butter in. Mix together. Add a little water if the mixture is too dry. Roll into balls and flatten.

Bake at 190/Gas mark 5 on a greased tray for 15-20 mins.

Let me know if you try them in the comments and tweet me a picture @Honestmum as I always love to see when you bake or cook my recipes!

    Such a quick and easy recipe and I so know my boys will go mad for those. I’m going to make them tomorrow with my 4 year old for when his brother gets back from school. The question I get asked almost every day upon school pick up “Have you baked anything today mummy?” (like mother like son) lol. These will hit the spot on a Monday for sure! xx

    Ooh, these are going to be happening in my kitchen today – I happen to have four very ripe narnies I was going to freeze to make ice cream with but I’m now thinking oaty cookies instead. With sultanas. Maybe choc chips too. (I’m running my pantry down, as we’re moving on Dec. 1st!)

    Thanks so much for this recipe, darling – will be sharing it too! xxx

    Yum! These looks so delicious – love how you’ve used banana to sweeten rather than sugar. I could eat a whole stack of these 😀 Eb x
