Banana Cookies

These cookies are a definite favorite with my kids! They’re sweet and soft and use very basic ingredients. Let’s go!


Banana Cookies


  • 3 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 4 egg whites
  • 3 cups oats
  • 2 tbsp. whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 chocolate chips or nuts (if you wish– I’ve made them plain, with nuts, or with choc. chips… they’re good no matter what!)


  • Mix first 3 ingredients together in a large bowl. Add egg whites and mix. Add remaining ingredients except nuts or chocolate chips. After dough (more like batter, really) is mixed, add nuts or chips.
  • Batter will seem too liquid, but drop on cookie sheet by tablespoon anyway.
  • Bake at 350 for approx. 12 minutes.


  • I often make a whole batch of these, but I’ve cut it into a third before and used only one banana and one egg white. That worked! Each banana used seems to yield about a dozen cookies.
  • If I use nuts, I prefer walnuts or pecans for this recipe.
  • Don’t know what to do with those egg yolks? I have another kid-friendly recipe coming up that uses just yolks!
