I know I’m not alone when I say both oatmeal cookies and banana bread are two of the best comfort food treats out there.  After all, they both have a sweet heartiness going on that seems to whisper, “Everything’s going to be ok.”  This is why it seemed totally necessary to morph these two into this one wondrous wholesome treat. The greatest part of all is that these cookies are made with three ingredients, since the base is a Peanut’s Bake Shop Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookie Kit.

Why this Recipe Works:

  • Created for use with my Peanut’s Bake Shop Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookie Kit, this recipe doesn’t require any of the usual cookie dough ingredients!
  • The banana not only adds a soft yet hearty texture to these cookies, but it actually replaces the oil traditionally used to make them.  This aspect makes the cookies healthier, all around.
  • The cinnamon, oatmeal, and banana combination is so warming and comforting. I can’t wait for you to try these!

Do these cookies really taste like banana bread?

  • They do in their own way. They still have the texture of a soft cinnamon oatmeal cookie, but have the lovely flavor of banana bread going on, too!  These cookies are truly a winner.

How to Make “Banana Bread” Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies:

1. First, preheat your oven to 350º. Then, in a mixing bowl, mash one large banana thoroughly with a fork. (Disregard the oil called for on the package.)

2. Open your Peanut’s Bake Shop Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookie Kit and pour the contents into the bowl containing the banana.

3. Add the water to this bowl too, and stir well until all flour is incorporated.

4. Drop 12 mounds of dough onto a parchment-lined or nonstick baking sheet.

5. Bake in the oven for about 12 minutes. It’s better to slightly under bake than over bake.

6. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for two minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack. Enjoy!

Top Tips for Making Vegan “Banana Bread” Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies:

  • This recipe was created using a Peanut’s Bake Shop Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookie Kit.
  • Make sure your banana is ripe. If it’s too green, it will be difficult to mash it to the degree that is needed.
  • If you feel like getting creative, try adding 1/4 – 1/3 cup of walnuts and/or non-dairy chocolate chips or chunks to your dough before baking.
  • These cookies are delicious eaten right out of the freezer!  I encourage you to try freezing yours and see if you agree.
