I originally shared the first version of this recipe on Pinterest. To my surprise, I got quite a bit of interaction on it. People were commenting to let me know they tried it, any changes they made, and what they thought about it.

Being that the first recipe originally included peanut butter, I wanted to create a version that was more allergy-friendly. These gluten-free banana oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are dairy-free, corn-free, nut-free, soy-free, and so on! Plus, they are a fantastic way to use up our ripening bananas.

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Line two baking sheets with a baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.

  3. In a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer or a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, combine the shortening/butter and sugars, mixing until smooth. Add in the egg, vanilla, and the mashed banana, and mix until combined.

  4. Slowly add in the flour mixture and mix on a low speed until just combined. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.

  5. Using a medium cookie scoop, drop the dough on the prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart from one another.

  6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden around the edges but still soft in the center. Remove the tray of cookies from the oven and let the cookies sit on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes. It is important to not skip this step so the cookies can be set on the tray before transferring.

  7. After the 5 minutes, transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and cool completely.
