Nope, with this recipe for Banana Oatmeal Cookies you can skip right to (d) and MAKE IT NOW! Because aside from black walnuts, I’m pretty sure you’ll have everything on hand.

So let’s talk about those black walnuts. Lisa created a recipe for cereal bars with Hammons black walnuts recently, and we’re excited to bring you another recipe today. This was my first introduction to black walnuts, and I was interested in some of the benefits that they offer. Black walnuts are bolder and earthier – yes, earthier definitely describes them. Nutritionally speaking, they deliver more protein than any other tree nut and also offer fiber and omega-3s. They are typically used in baked goods, lending themselves well to savory dishes, or as a crunchy topping on yogurt, oatmeal, salads, etc.

    I wanted to try this recipe but was feeling lazy & had a cranky toddler as my sous chef. So instead of using the blender or going the grocery store we did:
    2 bananas
    1/4 c butter, melted
    1/4 c maple syrup
    1 c whole wheat flour
    1 c oats
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 c walnuts
    1/4 c dried cranberries

    We followed all other directions except I blended the wet ingredients by hand. They turned out delicious & my toddler certainly approved!

    Excellent! So much better and so little sugar. I didn’t have oat flour but used a combo of whole wheat and white flour, used applesauce instead of butter as I can’t have it, and they turned out just fine. Any way to know the carb count as I am diabetic. Thanks for a good recipe.

  3. Thanks for this great simple recipe. I used 1/4 tsp of salt and 3/4 c of walnuts and choc chips combined (we don’t have raisin lovers:). Just the right amount of sweetness! And love having a homemade cookie that I feel good about giving to my kids.
