Make Banana Oatmeal Cookies without added Sugar

If you want to go completely without added sugar for these peanut butter banana oatmeal cookies, here are a couple of ways to do it:

First, you can simply omit the coconut sugar here. I have tried this cookie recipe without the coconut sugar a couple of times. They are still so delicious and plenty sweet from the ripe bananas.

And the riper the banana, the sweeter the cookie.

Second, use 100% Dark chocolate chip or you can omit the chocolate chips altogether. I personally love the 70% dark chocolate (with a little bit of added coconut sugar)

Peanut Butter

When it comes to choosing what peanut butter to purchase, my number one tip is:

The FEWER ingredients the BETTER.

My favorite Peanut Butter has only one ingredient – Organic Peanuts.

There are no hydrogenated oils, added sugars, or any other ingredients that I can’t pronounce.


Instead of peanut butter, you can use almond butter, cashew butter, or sunflower butter. Similar to choosing peanut butter, you would want to buy the nut butter that has a very minimal ingredient list.

Store Peanut butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Once the oatmeal cookies cooled completely, you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Certainly, you can double the batch and freeze them for a couple of months.
