Banana Oatmeal Cookies with White Chocolate and Nutella

Super Yummy!

Those are the words my daughter used to describe these cookies.

I had 3 very ripe bananas on my counter and I wasn’t in the mood for my go to ripe banana recipe – The Best Banana Bread.  I thought about Banana Bars or Banana Cupcakes but none of those really did it for me.  I decided a banana cookie was in order.  A Super Yummy banana cookie.

Banana Oatmeal Cookies with White Chocolate and Nutella

Banana cookies combined with oatmeal, white chocolate and Nutella is near profection

I wanted a nice moist cookie but I didn’t want it to be too cake like.  I used 3 ripe bananas and oatmeal.  It gave it just the right  texture.

I also used cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice for seasoning.  Yum!

The crowning touch was the addition of white chocolate chips and a drizzle of nutella on top (thanks Lizzy for the nutella suggestion!)

Pretty much perfection for a banana cookie!

Be sure and push down on the cookies a bit before you bake them.

After the cookies cool drizzle them with the nutella.  I warmed the nutella up in the microwave until it was thin enough to drizzle with. Be sure to stir it well to get it drizzling consistency.  I put it into a plastic baggie and snipped off the corner and drizzled

So if you need to incorporate more fruits into your diet may I suggest Banana Oatmeal Cookies with White Chocolate and Nutella!?

    I made these last night and they taste amazing. Only complaint I have is that they are so soft they fall apart quite easily. Any suggestions for how to firm them up a bit or where I went wrong? I like a soft cookie, don’t get me wrong, but I have a hard time getting them off the rack without them falling apart.

    After you bake and drizzle with nutella, do you bake again? What is the bake for 9-1 as the last line? Help! Making these today :)

      No you don’t bake them again – that was just some left over typing – not sure why? Haven’t noticed it before so thanks for letting me know. I have deleted it.
      Enjoy!

  1. […] We love baking cookies, especially my oldest since cooking means getting out of math lessons once a week!  I love it because they ask so many questions and I learn by looking up the ones I don’t know the answer to (like the difference between baking soda & baking powder).  Over the next few weeks we’ll go on a cookie baking spree, trying out new cookies before we start our actual holiday baking.  Here are 25 of the cookie recipes that made our list! 1.
