Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


Who doesn't love cookies? I mean they take 10 minutes to prepare and are the perfect little sweet treat.

I have been on a pumpkin kick lately, preparing all baked goods with Pumpkin, (because tis the season) but I had two over ripe bananas laying around and thought why not throw them in with some cookies. I scrounged up a delicious recipe on Pinterest and threw it together! I could not get over how flavorful the cookies were. Anything with nutmeg in it is my jam! Here is the recipe for you guys to enjoy.


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (I added a little extra)
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup butter or shortening
  • 2 ripe bananas mashed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 3/4 cup quick oats
  • 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

2. Combine dry ingredients

3. Add in butter and stir to combine

4. Add in banana, egg, and oats. Blend together.

 5. Mix in chocolate chips.

6. Scoop tablespoon sized dough drops onto cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes (I like my cookies on the softer side so I did 8 minutes)

7. Enjoy! 

Live Blissfully!
