Oatmeal Banana cookie


Now a days my picky eater (my son Vishvak) drives me crazy. Whatever I give him its a big noooo. If I give him food in plate that’s the last thing he wants to taste, but if he see anything in carpet, he gets super excited to taste it. If This is the story with food, fruits oh mannnnn. Though eating fruits directly is always best, at times I feel it’s better if he tastes something in a different form instead of rejecting it fully. Decided to give fruits in some other form, so far have succeeded with muffin and pudding (Recipe coming soon).

I was searching for the toddler friendly recipes and got inspired from Wholesomebabyfoods. Good thing about banana cookie is no fancy ingredients, its super easy and most importantly even we liked it

Checkout my other cookie recipes,

Banana Oatmeal Cookie


Banana – 2, around 1 cup mushed

Oats – 1 cup, I used quick oats

Raisin – 2 tbsp



  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the parchment paper on cookie try and grease it with cooking spray/bultter
  • In a mixing bowl, add oats and banana; mush the banana and combine well into a dough. Add raisin and mix well.



  • Take a tbsp of dough and make a small round shape cookie and place them in parchment paper
  • Bake for 13 – 18 minutes (mine took 14 minutes) or until light brown on the bottom. Cool completely before eating



My Notes:

  • Can use chocolate chip, almonds, pecans,walnut or any other nuts of your choice
  • Spices like Cinnamon, nutmeg can be added
  • I didn’t add sugar as it was sweet because of banana. Sugar can be added if you feel so
  • If you are using old fashioned oats coarsely pulse it once
  • Watch on eye after 13 minutes to avoid over cooking
  • Can mash and add bananas
  • If you don’t like raw oats flavour you can saute the oats for 3-4 minutes and add it
  • Can pulse the oats and add it

    Awesome recipe! I love stuff like this. Presumably it’s good for grown-ups as well, because I can easily see the recipe being adapted using different types of fruit. I’d rather make my own oatcakes than buy them from Sainsburys, so thanks for this. I’ll give them a go. What could possibly go wrong? 😉

    What a wonderful mum you are! We are treated to a 20-minute show every evening by our 3-year-old, all singing all dancing, only to then watch her eat her food without any further issues. Most of the time, anyway …
