  • 3 small ripe bananas, mashed (~1 cup mashed)
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups quick cook 1 minute oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Brewer's Yeast Powder (optional for lactation cookies)
  • 2 Tbsp. ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips (plus a little extra for garnishing the tops of the cookies)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the mashed bananas, peanut butter, honey, egg and vanilla until smooth.
  • Then combine the dry ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl: oats, flour, brewer's yeast (if using), flaxseed, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
  • Fold the dry ingredients into the banana mixture with a rubber spatula until combined and then stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Use a cookie scoop to scoop dough onto cookie sheet, 6 cookies per sheet. Press the cookies down gently with the back of a spoon or measuring cup. Place a couple more chocolate chips on top of the cookies if desired.
  • Bake for 15-16 minutes or until edges are lightly brown.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Sprinkle flaky sea salt on top, if desired. Enjoy!
