  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup mashed banana about 1/2 a banana
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips plus extra for topping


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a medium sized saucepan set over medium heat, whisk together the coconut oil, peanut butter, maple syrup and banana until melted and smooth. Bring the mixture to a boil and then remove from heat.
  • Whisk in the vanilla extract. Add the oats, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Fold together with a rubber spatula until combined. Let cool for two minutes, then fold in the chocolate chips. It's okay if the chocolate chips melt a little.
  • Using a 1 1/2 inch cookie scoop, scoop out the dough and place on the cookie sheet. Place the cookies in the refrigerator until set, at least 30 minutes. Store the cookies in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Enjoy!



  • Peanut Butter: Creamy natural peanut butter works best. You can also use chunky peanut butter, but the texture of the cookies may be different. You can also substitute with almond butter.
  • Maple Syrup: Adds a subtle sweetness and helps bind the cookies. You can also substitute with agave or honey, if desired.
  • Chocolate Chips: Enjoy Life chocolate chips are a great vegan and gluten free brand.
Store the cookies in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
