How to Make Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
If you are a pro-cookie-baker, then you can definitely make these cookies without any difficulty. Even for beginners, this recipe is quite simple and easy to follow. All it needs is to gather the right ingredients at the right place and blend them together to form the cookie dough then divide the dough into small cookies. Finally, when everything is ready and in place, the cookies are baked until they are golden brown.
The important step in this procedure is to refrigerate the dough before baking it in the oven. Once the cookie dough is divided into cookies on a baking tray, it is covered and then chilled for 2 hours in the refrigerator. This step gives the dough enough time to set and become firmer.
When you refrigerate the cookie, the dough is baked directly in the oven, it turns out to be crumbly and crispy on the outside and soft and moist on the inside.

Tips for Making Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies
Instead of adding mashed banana, I add directly in large chunks to the liquid ingredients and then beat it in the mixer. This saves my time from mashing them separately.
This is one of the many banana desserts you need to make at home. The bananas that we use for this recipe should be ripe completely but not blackened. Avoid using overripe bananas for these cookies.
The freshly mixed cookie dough is a bit loose and moist in texture, so the cookies have to be refrigerated before baking to give them a bit of a firm texture.
Can we use Milk Chocolate in the cookies?
I loved to experiment with my recipes and gladly recommend others do the same. You can always switch to other flavors and types of chocolate chips to add variety to these cookies. Milk chocolate, white chocolate or dark chocolate, you can freely use any of them as per your personal taste preference.
Can we use Whole Wheat Flour to bake these cookies?
The whole wheat flour has a different texture, and it absorbs the liquid differently. Since we are already using oats that have the texture of their own, I would suggest using all-purpose flour along with it to get smooth cookie dough. So, if you want to use whole wheat flour, adjust the consistency of the dough accordingly.
Can we use Quick or Steel-cut Oats for this recipe?
No, the old-fashioned whole rolled oats are the only suitable choice for this cookie recipe. Both quick and steel-cut oats can disturb the proportions of this recipe and shouldn’t be used instead.
Now you have the recipe of a top-notch, heartwarming snack- easy chocolate chip banana oatmeal cookies. They can be cooked at any time of the day and can be served with tea, coffee and an after-meal dessert. The crunch and crumble of these oatmeal cookies are delightful.
