Oatmeal Banana Coconut Cookies

Prep Time
Cook Time
Total Time


  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup raisins (or dried cranberries or chocolate chips)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients (oats through salt).
  3. In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients (banana through vanilla), and then slowly add wet to dry, stirring gently until mostly uniform. There will probably still be some banana chunks, it’s fine!
  4. Spoon batter onto a cooking-sprayed or nonstick cookie sheet (or two, depending how large or small you want the cookies).
  5. Bake about 14 minutes until lightly browned.
