These healthy 3-Ingredient banana and oatmeal snacks are so easy, perfect for using up ripe bananas. It’s a great recipe for “little hands” in your household to help put things together before you put it in the oven!


  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • Optional: 1/4 cup of any of these:
    • dried cranberries
    • walnuts
    • peanut butter
    • raisins
    • chia seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare baking sheet with a non-stick silicone liner or parchment paper.
  2. Mash the bananas with a fork, add the oats plus other add-ins and stir. Once it’s all incorporated, drop 1 1/2 inch balls on the baking sheet and press down (like peanut butter cookies but without the fork). They won’t rise or change shape in the oven so make them the size and shape you want now. About 2 inches across works best. Bake for 12 minutes.
  3. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
