{Recipe} Banana Oatmeal Cookies

One of the things I like about the 21-Day Fix plan, is that you can trade out one of your yellow contains for a “treat”. I mean, who doesn’t deserve a treat from time to time, right?!

In the nutrition guide, there is a recipe for some yummy looking Banana Oatmeal Cookies. The recipe called for golden raisins and walnuts (which I’m not a fan of) so I swapped out some mini Enjoy Life chips and unsweetened shredded coconut instead!

Banana Oatmeal Cookies
Banana Oatmeal Cookies(Makes 8. Serving size is 2 and replaces 1 Yellow container on the 21-Day Fix)

Ingredients:
Nonstick cooking spray
1 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
2 tsp ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
2 medium ripe Bananas, mashed
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life since I have dairy issues)
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Lightly spray baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
3. Combine oats, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl, making sure to mix well.
4. Add mashed bananas, chips and coconut, mix well.
5. Drop by heaping Tbsp onto your baking tray. (I used the large Pampered Chef Scoop)
6. Flatten the cookies with wet fingers (so they don’t stick) or a silicon spatula.
7. Bake for 14-15 minutes, or until they are firm.
8. Cool and Enjoy!

The results were some seriously yummy cookies that I can eat for breakfast with my coffee, or have as a dessert on days when my sweet tooth kicks in.

What’s your favorite 21-Day Fix treat?

    Should these cookies be stored in the refrigerator? I made the other oatmeal cookies from the 21 day Fix eating plan book, and I’m trying to find out if they are best stored in the fridge. They use applesauce, which adds a lot of moisture. Thinking they fruit in the cookies might be an issue if left out. Thanks.

    My family and Myself can’t get enough of this cookies :) they are so delicious…I’m about to make some now ….yummy

  8. I thought that I had seen that you can’t have salt on the 21 Day Fix meal plan. These look so yummy, but I’m afraid to go off of the plan.

    • Hi Sarah! I’m so sorry for the delay in getting back to you! I somehow missed this comment :( – When doing the 21 Day Fix you are definitely cutting back on salt but I never cut it out completely. Salt is a vital mineral that we use to stay hydrate and to keep our electrolytes in balance. I would opt for a quality salt like pink himalayan or sea salt and just use it in moderation. I hope this information helps, even thought it’s late. If you have any other questions please let me know!
