The oatmeal banana and cocoa cookies

These cookies are really easy to make, super duper healthy (what else!) and can be eaten as breakfast or as a snack. I went for a very early run this morning so I had some time to fix myself some breakfast before going to work. I had made these in the past, but I upgraded the recipe a notch! My upstairs neighbour wondered what could possibly smell so good so early in the day!

It’ll take you about 3 minutes to prepare and another 15 to bake.

Ingredients (for 4 cookies)

  • Oatmeal, 3 tablespoon
  • Ripe banana, 1 large
  • (Raw) cacao powder, 1 tablespoon
  • Chia seeds, 1 1/2 tablespoon


Pre-heat the over at 180°C.

Mash the banana first and mix with the rest of the ingredients! Bake for about 15-20 minutes, let them cool down and enjoy!


Keep the banana and oat as a base, but you can chuck in there pretty much anything you like: nuts, seeds, dried berries, chocolate chips; the sky is the limit!
