Oatmeal Cookies with Peanut Butter and Banana for the Whole Family


– 5 dl gluten-free organic oatmeal
– 2.5 dl mashed banana (about 3 bananas)
– 0.8 dl unsweetened organic peanut butter (or other nut butter)
– Optional: 0.8 dl dark chocolate chips
– Optional: 1 tsp pure vanilla extract from vanilla powder
– Optional: ½ teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon
– Optional: 1 pinch of salt
Tip: Replace the chocolate chips or add chopped mixed nuts, cocoa nibs, raisins, chopped dried fruit, or your own favorite.


1. Mix all the ingredients except the chocolate chips (or your seasoning of choice).
2. Fold the chocolate chips (or your own favorite flavoring) into the mix.
3. Shape the cookie dough into 8 balls and use your hands to flatten cookies (they won’t float out when baking in the oven).
4. Bake at 170C for 15-20 min.
5. Store in an airtight container for 2 days at room temperature or 5 days in the refrigerator.

You can tweak and add your favorite ingredients such as chopped mixed nuts, seeds, chia seeds, cacao nibs, raisins, chopped dried fruit, etc. If there are allergies in the family, adjust ingredients and use cashew butter instead of peanut butter. This is a fun recipe to experiment with and try different versions. It’s also a great breakfast option (instead of oatmeal for fussy children) and an easy snack for those on the go.

About sugar and tips!

This healthy cookie is naturally sweetened by the bananas. If you want them a little sweeter – add a little honey, coconut sugar, raw muscovado sugar to taste. Just remember that the more you sweeten them, the more this will affect your blood sugar levels. Since sugar contributes to chronic inflammation, limit your intake, find a good balance, and keep it as a healthy snack. Remember – if you add raisins or dried fruit, they will also be sweeter.

The sweeter food we eat, the more sugar we crave. By reducing the intake of sugar and sweets over a longer period (a few weeks), the less sweets you will crave. You will also feel how sweet things are when you go back and eat the same thing as before!

Always read the label when buying food. Choose products without added sugar and with as few ingredients as possible. More ingredients usually mean more processed product. We recommend less sugar and products that are as close to the main source as possible. Choose your sugar intake wisely and make informed decisions.


Oats are a great source of fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and are linked to many health benefits such as lowering blood sugar levels and reducing the risk of heart disease. Oats contain highly soluble beta-glucan fiber that has been shown to be effective in reducing cholesterol levels, both total and LDL. Oats can also protect LDL cholesterol from oxidation.
