    These look great. My husband loves oatmeal cookies. He says they have a nice “texture.” From the looks of it I can sneak something like these in under the radar to see what he thinks.

    Hi there! How many cookies does this recipe make?

    I’m trying to calculate the nutritional content because I have a diabetic in the house. Thanks in advance :)

    • Poesy, The recipe makes about 22-24 cookies depending of the size of your cookies. Hope it is helping you. Thanks Marie

        I got exactly 24! I have half a batch still in the oven, but I just tried one and YUM :)

        These aren’t as chewy as your regular oatmeal cookies (probably because of the bananas) but they are just as good! I used cocoa nibs instead of chocolate chips and subbed spelt for the quinoa and brown rice flours because I don’t have those in my pantry.

        I’m sure I’ll be making these again and trying different add-ins! Thank you for these delicious little treats :)

    I found this recipe on Pinterest, searching for banana cookies. I will keep your site, I am always looking for healthy recipes. I just made these, I had two of the flours, and used all-purpose for the rest. They are nice, puffy cookies, and both chewy and soft! Fantastic! Next time I will try adding some toasted walnut pieces for some of the chocolate chips, these seem the perfect canvas for that addition. Thanks for a delicious, healthy recipe!

  7. hello, thank you for this tasty recipe, there is always a special for cookies, specially like this one, thank you for sharing, have a nice evening, liên
