Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

These Banana Oatmeal Chip cookies taste way too delicious to be good for you. Surprisingly, they are equally nutritious as they are delicious! Super star ingredients include: ground flaxseed meal, banana, soy milk, agave nectar, whole wheat flour, walnuts, and canola oil. Sounds like an all-star cast to me! Added bonus: these cookies are vegan! :mrgreen:

Makes approximately 25 cookies


  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed meal
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar (or honey)
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup walnuts (optional)
  • Pinch of salt

Check out the chunks of chocolate chips and walnuts! Holy yum!


  • Preheat oven to 350*F.
  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well until batter is blended evenly.
  • Use a tablespoon to portion cookies on a greased baking sheet, approximately 1-2 inches apart.
  • Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes.
  • Remove cookies from baking sheet and allow to cool on wire rack.
  • Eat and enjoy!
Make sure you give this recipe a try! You will not be disappointed!!



  1. I have made these so many times I’ve lost track……THEY’RE DELICIOUS!!!
    Question………..Do you think they would freeze well?

  3. Ok, these were great! I tried a couple other oatmeal/agave recipes and this one is great! Thank you for sharing!

  4. If these are as good as they are easy I might make them every night… have them in the oven right now. I have been looking everywhere for a healthy cookie recipe that tastes good… have tried many and they have failed, these ones I think may pass the test!

  5. You are absolutely right! These are FANTASTIC! I am so excited to have found this recipe 🙂 My second batch in in the oven and my rule of tasting “just one” out of the oven has already been broken! I took others’ advice and substituted the applesauce for oil and they came out just perfect. Can’t wait to share this one and enjoy them OFTEN 🙂 Thanks again!

  6. I made these cookies a few days ago and they are delicious! I want to know how can I find out the nutritional information on the recipes? I have also made the pumpkin muffins which are excellent when warm with butter. How fatty are they? Help:)

  7. I’m SO in love with your recipes, Tina!! Thank you for posting such “healthified” versions of my favorite treats!

  9. These were honestly the BEST cookies I’ve ever had!! I am a huge banana fan, and I love the overall nutrition of these cookies!!! Thank you so much!

  10. Tina – I just found this recipe and made a double batch this week and my family and clients love them. My 16yr old especially loves them warmed up. I used my favorite chocolate chips by Enjoy Life. They are: gluten-free, dairy-free, peanut-free, tree-nut free, soy free, egg free and casein-free baking. Here is the link to these amazing mini chips – in fact my hubby snacks on them for his chocolate fix.

    I shared this recipe with clients this week and just posted on a my blog:

    Thank you Tina!!!

  11. Hi Tina,

    I have made these cookies before and I LOVE them! Just wondering if it would be ok to use almond milk instead of soy? Thank you for your time!

  12. I just made this and they were delicious! I plan on making more tonight as I have bananas that need to be used up. I used almond milk and forgot the flaxseed ~ still good though!

  13. Finally got to making these when I was flipping through your book. Have some bananas that need a purpose in life, (as well as agave) and this was great! Great little nuggets of sweetness and nutrition!
