Total Time 22 mins
Servings 1 cookie


  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 medium banana very ripe
  • 2 tbsp avocado very ripe
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 4 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 4 tbsp old fashioned oats not instant
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup raisins or other dried fruit
  • 2 tsp chia seeds or ground flax seed - optional


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a small cookie sheet with parchment paper, silicone liner or lightly grease/use cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl add the egg then slice the banana and add the avocado and mix/mash it all with a fork until smooth
  • Stir in the vanillia and chia or flax if using, then add the flour, oats, and cinnamon. Stir just until everything is wet.
  • Add your dried fruit and stir just until mixed in.
  • Place a ball of dough in the center of the prepared cookie sheet, press down to spread it out just a bit and bake 14-16 minutes. The edges should appear dry, the center still soft.
  • Let cool a few minutes on the cookie sheet and eat warm or let cool completely and store in an air-tight container for later.


2 tablespoons of peanut butter or other nut butter can be substituted for the avocado with some wonderful results. For those looking for an option to commercial protein bars, try adding 1/2 scoop of your favorite protein powder with the other dry ingredients as well.
