6 servings


  • 2

    medium ripe bananas

  • 1

    cup Oats

  • 1

    scoop Perfect Fit Protein

  • OPTIONAL: crushed walnuts, raisins, chocolate chips, dried cranberries


STEP 1: Mash your peeled bananas in a bowl with a fork ~ mash well! Add in the scoop of Perfect Fit and keep mixing. Depending on how ripe your bananas are, you may need to add a few drops of almond milk or water to make your dough the right consistency. Lastly, mix in the oats. This is also the time you can add any other toppings you like!
STEP 2: Use a spoon to drop the dough on your cookie sheet ~ be sure to coat it with non-stick cooking spray ~ and lightly press down to flatten. This helps it bake better! Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown! If they are still a little mushy, just bake for a little bit longer.
STEP 3: Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown! If they are still a little mushy, just bake for a little bit longer.


Other great takes on this simple recipe include pumpkin spice, pumpkin puree (half and half with the banana), pecans, carob chips… or even vanilla extract, almond extract or cinnamon.

  1. What ingredient/how much to use if we do not have the protein?! I love all of your recipes but don’t own your protein so I’m afraid if I replace it with something else they won’t turn out. Thank you!!

    1. I would just purchase protein from a nutrition store, but be careful and I would recommend checking out food babe’s blog on protein before you buy. Many of them on the market have high levels of scary things like lead, mercury, cadmium… One that I’ve found and like (from her list) is Tera’s Whey and I also picked up some samples of Sun Warrior protein that I’ve yet to try. Honestly though, I LOVE PFP (chocolate flavor). I find myself craving a big glass of it mixed into lowfat milk! It’s pricey, but no more than the rice protein at any nutrition store! It’s the same price per serving. I hope this helps :)

    1. In my experience they turn a suspicious white color after about a week (we bake them so they stay gooey in the middle, otherwise if they are fully cooked they get a bit dry and chalky lol).

  2. I added 1/2 tbsp. coconut flakes, 2 pitted dates finely sliced, a couple of almonds on top, cinnamon, and a sprinkle of pumpkin spice before putting them in the oven (I also halved the recipe). HELLO MEAL 1 TOMORROW :)

  3. Hi everyone!

    Just wondering, how many of these count as 1 serving? Does 1 cookie = 1 Meal 1 (a pre-workout snack in the morning) or as a Meal 2 (mid-morning snack between breakfast and lunch?)

    Is one cookie filling enough to be either a Meal 1 or 2 (as mentioned above) or would 2 be sufficient?

    Thanks so much for a great recipe Kat & Karena!


  4. I make something similar! We use 1/2 C oatmeal, 1 banana, 1 spoonful of natural peanut butter, 2 scoops chocolate protein powder and a handful of dark chocolate chips. Bake for 6 min at 350°F. I add coconut but my gf does not. They are DELICIOUS. I can’t stand protein shakes anymore so these are perfect for breakfast, afternoon snack or post-training. Makes 5 cookies (I usually double the recipe and freeze for the week)

  5. Making cookies right now!!! I added unsweetened coconut flakes, some chopped raw almonds and chocolate chips bitter sweet(62% cacao) so it kind of turned into a 6 ingredient almond joy cookie. Defintiely does the trick!
