These incredibly simple cookies have very little sugar and no flour. You could easily make them 100% sugar free by leaving out the chocolate chips, but don’t because chocolate is wonderful.
This recipe is a blend of two great recipes – one is from Shauna Niequist’s book “Bread & Wine” and the other is from bloggerShannon Lim.

by New to the Table
Yield: 12 cookies / Total Time: less than 20 minutes
- 2/3 cup quick oats
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 large very ripe banana
- 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 350º and line a baking sheet with parchment or silicone baking mat.
In a medium bowl, mash the banana with a fork. Add peanut butter and stir until well combined. Stir in vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine oats and baking soda.
Add oats to peanut butter and combine well. Fold in chocolate chips.
Use cookie scoop or soup spoon to drop large rounds of dough onto prepared sheet. Do not flatten dough.
Bake for 9-11 minutes or until cookies are golden brown. Transfer immediately from cookie sheet to rack to cool.
I hope you enjoy these! I certainly have a much happier tum and am ready to dive head first into more homework.
