I’m in LOVE with this oatmeal coconut cookie recipe with banana. The flavors of banana, coconut, and oats pair perfectly in fluffy, hearty cookies that make a perfect snack or healthy dessert!
They’re 100% whole wheat, free of refined sugar, and packed with healthy ingredients like Greek yogurt, flax seed, oats, and raisins.
Oatmeal Coconut Cookie Recipe with Banana
I’ve been snacking on these nonstop lately! I make a batch during the weekend and store them in the freezer, then microwave them during the week when I’m craving something sweet. They’re delicious hot and fresh from the oven or hot and fresh from the microwave. 😉
The key is to use ripe bananas for maximum flavor and natural sweetness. Unsweetened coconut adds nutty, toasty flavor without tons of sugar, and pure maple syrup adds just the right amount of sweetness and helps bind the cookies together. The result is a cookie that’s not too sweet but is packed with flavor.
Have some browning bananas to use up? Here are 9 tasty recipes that use overripe bananas.
They’re super easy to make, too! Just stir together the dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately, then mix together until combined. Scoop the dough onto a baking sheet, bake, and voila – delicious cookies that are moist and fluffy, almost like an oatmeal banana coconut muffin top!
These would be perfect for packing in kids’ lunches for a sweet treat that’s still healthy. And, they’d be equally delicious with chocolate chips or dried cranberries in place of the raisins!
Here’s the full oatmeal coconut cookie recipe. Enjoy!
