  • Author: Allison
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 12-15 cookies 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


The simplest power cookies made with just five ingredients! Perfect for an energy boost in the afternoon or as part of a breakfast.


  • 3 medium-large very ripe bananas
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup smooth natural peanut butter (sub sunflower seed butter for nut-free option)
  • 8 pitted Medjool dates, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • Pinch of fine sea salt (omit if using salted peanut butter)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line one large or 2 medium baking sheet(s) with parchment paper.
  2. Mash the bananas in a large bowl. Stir in the oats, peanut butter, dates, chocolate chips, and salt, if using. The batter will be quite sticky.
  3. Scoop even portions of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet(s), making 12-15 cookies.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes and let the cookies cool on the pan for a couple of minutes before transferring to a wire rack and cooling completely.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days or in the freezer for a month.
