Gluten Free Banana Oatmeal Cookies

I have a sweet tooth and if you read my blog you know this!  =)  So when I started the 21 Day Fix program one of my biggest fears was my sweet tooth and would I be able to go days without having something sweet?!  Well thankfully the program allows for you to make room for sweets and wine so it has been so easy to follow!  The great thing is that the sweets they offer are actually healthy for you!  Say what??  Sweet and healthy is my perfect combination!!  So the first one I tried was the Banana Oatmeal Cookies but I altered it a bit because I had to use gluten free oats and  I don't like raisins so I nixed those!  They tasted like banana bread and you could truly eat them for dessert or even as a breakfast!  My kids have been enjoying them all week long for an afternoon snack and I LOVE knowing that it's healthy for them!  Try them and let me know what you think!!

Gluten Free Banana Oatmeal Cookies


Nonstick Cooking Spray
1 cup gluten free oats
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. sea salt
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 golden raisins (optional)
1/4 cup chopped raw walnuts (you could substitute another nut if you'd rather, I used chopped almonds but I would prefer walnuts next time!)

Another yummy option would be to add 1/4 cup of chocolate chips!  Don't worry, they'll still be healthy, just don't eat the whole pan!  =)


  1. Preheat oven to 350. 
  2. Lightly coat baking sheet with cooking spray
  3. Combine oats, cinnamon, and salt and mix well.
  4. Add bananas, raisins, and nuts and mix well.
  5. Drop by heaping Tbsp. onto baking sheet and flatten cookies.  (As you can see, mine were NOT pretty so just flatten them a little and move on!)  =)
  6. Bake for 14 minutes or until firm.
