Need a quick make-ahead breakfast idea?

If your mornings will soon be filled with busy back to school routines, consider baking these portable Oatmeal Banana Breakfast Cookies. They are super simple with just two main ingredients and can be made with so many different add-ins to customize for your family’s taste.

For these cookies I added peanut butter and sliced almonds, but you could add raisins, cinnamon, coconut flakes, chocolate chips, walnuts, berries, and any other items you’d normally add to oatmeal.

TIP – For sweetness, make sure to use over-ripe bananas.

The recipe as is yields a cookie that’s not meant to be super sweet. It’s more of a baked oatmeal consistency. If it’s not sweet enough for your taste, simply add a little honey, brown sugar, or sweetener of choice before baking.

My family is crazy for anything oatmeal related and these are perfect to grab for a quick and satisfying breakfast.

I like them re-heated a little with coffee or a glass of milk. YUM!

    Sounds delish!! I’ve been craving oatmeal raisin cookies. Will need to try this recipe out. Sounds super easy.

  2. Ann

    can be frozen?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes I’m sure you can in an airtight container. Have not tried yet πŸ˜€

    This is the dish that made me discover my daughter’s peanut allergies. I was holding her when she was a few months old , took a bite of the cookie, had some crumbs fall down. Didn’t think much of it until diaper changing time. Apparently a crumb fell into her onesie…when i lifted her shirt to change her diaper, she was all red and hive-y. πŸ‘Ž she’s almost 3 and haven’t made these ever since.

    • Mom2boys

      I too have a little one with peanut allergy so I plan to try making them with sun butter so he can have them too!! Really needed some healthy breakfast ideas so Thanks Lina for the recipe!

      • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

        Sure! And yes definitely can change and omit nuts to accommodate πŸ˜€ Enjoy!

  4. Marie

    I made these last year when the recipe was floating around. They were gross! I hate wasting food but they went in the trash.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh darn – thanks for sharing πŸ‘

    • Laura

      They are delicious if you enjoy the taste of healthier snacks and treats.

  5. Christine

    These are literally in the oven as I type this… Finger crossed πŸ™‚

  6. MontanaMom

    Thank you for all the great portable/packable recipes lately! I am going to be SO prepared for school lunches and grab and go breakfasts this year!!!

  7. Liz

    I added some craisins, chia seeds and two fun size packs of m&ms and they taste satisfying and really good. Just had my four year old taste and he says it’s yummyπŸ‘πŸ‘

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      That’s so great! Thanks Liz πŸ‘πŸ»

  8. melloddie

    Skipped peanut butter, added raisins and some m&ms. My older kiddo liked it and younger one didn’t but it’s because my younger one doesn’t like oatmeal yet. I really liked it and was soooo simple to make. Thx so much!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh I’m glad! Thanks for sharing πŸ‘πŸ»

    • crystalsnow

      What did you use in place of peanut butter?

  9. Jeni

    Could and when could I add some honey?? Yummmmo!!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes I’d add it with the oatmeal and banana mixture πŸ‘

  10. Tricka

    Just made these about an hour ago with just the oats, banana and natural pb to see what they were like. My 8 yr old said they were nasty and would not take a 2nd bite. I ate 2 so far lol and liked them because I am a clean eater and used to healthy non sweet things but no one would eat these but me in my house. I’m sure if I added m&ms or something it would change that but then they are no longer healthy. So yes if you don’t enjoy healthy food it won’t work for you…now on to #3! Lol

    • Tricka

      Much rather use the bananas to make ice cream…now that’s yummy!

      • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

        Good idea!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Ya definitely adjust to taste πŸ˜€
      Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts Tricka!

  11. Whitney

    My kiddos start back to school in a couple weeks and these look like they’d be great for them to eat on the way to school!

    Can I use steel cut oats?
