Hi Bold Bakers!

Sometimes, being Bold means keeping things super simple. My 3 Ingredient Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe is just that: simple and easy to make! They only take about 10 minutes to whip up, and another 15 minutes to bake. They’re made of 3 wholesome ingredients that you most likely have lying around the house, and most importantly they taste AMAZING. Who would have thought that all you need to make them are a few mashed bananas, some quick oats, and chocolate chips to whip up some crowd pleasing treats?

These cookies are a great take on the classic oatmeal cookie. They are sweet and satisfying, but basically guilt free. They are naturally gluten free, flourless, oilless, and are free of eggs, dairy or added sugars.  These are a great mid-day snack, perfect for your kids’ lunch boxes, and make a lovely dessert as well. I love them because they are really filling, and keep you satisfied for hours due to the oats and their slow releasing energy.

    Happy National chocolate chip cookie day. I had to make these (because they are way healthier than the normal ones 😛 :D) and they turned out absolutely amazing. My house smelled fantastic and all festive 😀
    However I did do a few tweeks.. Instead of chocolate chips, I added chopped chocolate. I also added a little bit of ground peanut flour to turn them brown, because I wanted them to look like chocolate chip cookies for today’s national chocolate chip cookie day. One last thing I tweeked was I added an egg into it adjusting the ratios appropriately. I did this because I did not wanted to risk it with just banana, plus with banana the cookie batter looked a little too dry and looked like it wouldn’t taste that great. And this time, remebering your technique to brush the parchment paper with some butter so that they don’t stick, I proceeded to bake. The result was just amazing and I am going to keep on making these. Thank you so much gemma for this lovely recipe (and also for everything else)

    P.S: I have added a photo of my crude creation 😛 😀

      Hi there,
      I will be going to the photos shortly, and am dying to see your results. Thank you for this great description of the recipe, and the changes you made too. I had a question today about PB powder, and this is a perfect application for this, well done you.
      Chopped chocolate has a couple of things going for it. It is better value to buy, and it melts in the bake, delicious!
      Gemma 🙂

    Hey gemma tell me one thing if i don’t want to add bananas in cookies…!! There is any substitute of bananas in this recipe??

    • Gemma Stafford on July 30, 2018 at 5:52 pm

      that’s a tough one because it is a main ingredient. I honestly don’t know a good substitute.

      Something that is thick and starching would work.

      Best,
      Gemma.

    How many calories are in each cookie would you believe?

    • Gemma Stafford on July 12, 2018 at 4:32 am

      Hi Laura,
      I will be guessing, but I would say 200 calories per 2oz cookie. (55g) or so.
      Not too far off I think. My Fitness Pal have great calculators online which you can use to double check this, I hope it helps,
      Gemma 🙂

    I LOVE the peanut butter cookie recipe. It’s good if you add chocolate chips too.
    I’m looking forward to trying the other 3 ingredient recipes, especially the macaroon recipe.
    Thank you for the recipes!

    • Gemma Stafford on June 25, 2018 at 4:58 am

      Hi Debi,
      Good, well done you to make this your own. Great tip,
      Gemma 🙂

    Tried this recipe today and the cookies are lovely. I always watch your videos. I love your recipes and will try to bake another cookies fromnyour recipes

    • Gemma Stafford on May 28, 2018 at 8:10 am

      Hi there Mellisa,
      That is very good to hear, thank you for letting me know. You can upload a photo here too if you wish,
      Gemma 🙂

  6. Lorilynne on May 24, 2018 at 8:47 am

    Can these be frozen?

    • Gemma Stafford on May 25, 2018 at 4:40 am

      Hi there,
      Yes! This will work well for you,
      Gemma 🙂

  7. Nicki on May 17, 2018 at 4:28 am

    I tried adding egg for more protein but they came out a bit spongy. Will try sans oeuf next time. Otherwise, great!

    • Gemma Stafford on May 19, 2018 at 12:02 am

      Hi Nicki,

      Adding anything to these cookies will change the cookie and the final result. I don’t recommend adding egg to these. Maybe try another one of my cookies that has egg in it already.

      Best,
      Gemma.

  8. Barbara S. on May 16, 2018 at 7:35 pm

    I loved the cookies and the kids loved them too!!!

    • Gemma Stafford on May 17, 2018 at 3:35 am

      I’m thrilled to hear that, Barbara.

      Thanks for letting me know.

      Best,
      Gemma.

    How about adding chopped nuts? I adore nuts even more than chips in my cookies but the family love chocolate. Would you suggest adjusting anything if I add chopped walnuts or pecans?

    • Gemma Stafford on May 9, 2018 at 1:08 pm

      Hi Rachel,
      I used to make a cookie with chocolate chips and hazelnuts, so delicious! The nuts will not change the recipe, you could add them to 1/2 the batter, just for you.
      I would toast the nuts lightly, to add to the flavor, then chop them when cooled. They do not absorb other ingredients, so are easily added to a batter.
      I hope you enjoy this, it is a great idea,
      Gemma 🙂

  10. Nancy on April 21, 2018 at 7:45 pm

    Tried this recipe today. NOT a fan, took one bite and threw them in the garbage. I like oatmeal, bananas and
    chocolate chips but this recipe is NOT for me!!!

    • Gemma Stafford on April 22, 2018 at 3:21 am

      Hi Nancy,
      I am really sorry to hear this. Thank you for letting us know. This recipe is designed for a particular reason, you may like other recipe here. type ‘cookies’ in the search bar, and it will bring up the list of all the cookies.

    This is not about a recipe I just want to complement you on your hair, I really like the dark brown you put on it, it makes your eyes stand out, & it makes you look younger.

    • Gemma Stafford on April 16, 2018 at 4:19 am

      hi Gloria,
      why, thank you! That is so kind. I am dark, and though I flirt with color the natural one seems to work best. Now I am doing my happy dance <3

    Hi again,

    Can I use rolled oats instead?

    What difference would it do?

    • Gemma Stafford on April 13, 2018 at 6:24 pm

      Hi Christine!

      Yes, rolled oats are perfect. They will be a bit bigger but will work well.

      Gemma.

  13. Andrea Lugo on April 7, 2018 at 9:21 pm

    Hi Gemma!, i was wondering if i could add some cocoa powder to this recipe?.

    Side note: i really love your recipes :).

    • Gemma Stafford on April 8, 2018 at 11:19 am

      Hi Andrea,
      Thank you, that is kind.
      Yes, certainly add some cocoa. 1 tablespoon of cocoa will flavor 4oz/125g of flour/oatmeal etc.
      Give it a try, it should work well for you,
      Gemma 🙂
