These super simple Banana Nut Cookies are soft, cinnamon-spiced, and flecked with toasted pecans for an easy snack, yummy breakfast, or healthy dessert!


  • 3 ripe bananas (325g)
  • 1/3 cup (55g) coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup (70g) nut or seed butter ((I used almond butter))
  • 2 cups (220g) oat flour ((*see notes for grain-free option))
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts ((I used pecans))


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Add the bananas, coconut sugar, and almond butter to a blender. Blend until no large chunks of banana remain.
  3. Add the baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and flour. Blend until combined. Do not over-blend.
  4. Add the nuts and stir/pulse them in.
  5. Drop spoonfuls of batter onto the pan leaving room in between as they will spread some. Sprinkle extra nuts on top if desired.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes at 350F or until the bottom edges are golden brown.
  7. Remove from the oven and cool for at least 10 minutes before eating. Enjoy!


*For the grain-free version, replace oat flour with 2 cups almond flour (220g) + 1/2 cup tapioca starch or arrowroot starch or cornstarch (70g).
