Sweet Indulgences - Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies {Gluten-Free}

I found myself with a few overly ripe bananas this weekend and instead of making one of my banana bread recipes, I decided to create a gluten-free cookie recipe with chocolate chips.  These Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies actually taste like banana bread in small bites, only chewy!

Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies {Gluten- Free}

Recipe by Laura Ashman Jolna

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 12 min
Total time: 17 min
Yield: 24 treats

  • 1-1/2 cup oat flour, gluten-free
  • 1/8 cup flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup mashed bananas (approx 2)
  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1 Tbsp molasses
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (or more if preferable)
Preheat oven to 350ยบ.

Mix all dry ingredients (oat flour thru salt) together in a medium bowl with a whisk.

Using a Kitchenaid mixer or hand mixer, combine banana, sugar, molasses, vanilla extract, egg white & canola oil; mix well.   

Add flour mixture to wet mixture a little at a time and mix until blended.  Stir in chocolate chips.

Refrigerate dough for at least 30 minutes.

Scoop on baking sheet coated with cooking spray using small cookie scoop.  Flatten with a wet fork.

Bake 12 minutes.  Cool on wire rack.  Enjoy!

I use Bob's Red Mill for the oat flour and flaxseed meal. I buy it at my local health food store, but you can also buy them at amazon.com:
I've also been buying regular oats and grinding them myself in my cuisinart.  I like this method as well because I can control the fineness or coarseness of the oat flour.
