Healthy Banana Oat Cookies | No Thanks to Cake


  • 1 banana, ripened and mashed
  • ½ cup quick oats
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped pecans or walnuts


  • Combine banana and quick oats in a small bowl.  Note:  Quick oats are definitely recommended over standard oats.
  • Add nuts and combine.  Note:  Gina recommended walnuts in the original recipe, but I used pecans only because that’s what I had on hand.
  • Using a tablespoon, scoop out the dough and place on the cookie sheet, making 8 cookies.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Note:  Cookies become a little bit browner than I expected, but they’re PERFECT that way!
