Renal nutrition

These cookies are low in sodium because there is no salt or lifting agent.

Chocolate

Chocolate chips aren’t the healthiest ingredient, but if you’re like me, sometimes you crave for it.

So, the trick is to consume it in small doses. For this recipe, I greatly limited the amount of chocolate, but I left just enough to be able to enjoy a little with each bite!

Sugar

Even if there is a little chocolate, the sugar quantity per serving remains low since there is not much and there is no addition of sugar.

Renal variations

Only 2 ingredients

If you want to simplify this recipe, it is possible to make these cookies with only mashed bananas and rolled oats.

To do this, you just need to mix these 2 ingredients, shape cookies and bake them in the oven. You’ll get a nice batch of chewy banana oatmeal cookies!

Divide to conquer

Want to feel like there’s more chocolate without adding more? It’s possible!

Just replace the chocolate chips with the same amount of miniature chocolate chips! The chocolate will thus be better distributed in the biscuits.

Nuts, seeds and dried fruits

In this recipe it is possible to replace chocolate chips with nuts, seeds and dried fruits.

I personally tried with pecans and dried cranberries and it was excellent!

Type of oats

For this recipe, I used rolled oats. I cooked different versions and the ones made with this type of oats were clearly the ones with the best texture.

On the other hand, this recipe can also be made with quick oats. The only difference is that if you use this type of oats, your cookies will be more firm.

Spices

If you want to customize this recipe, you can add spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg or ginger.

More fibers

If you want more fibers, you can easily add 1 tablespoon of chia or flax seeds in this recipe.

Conservation

Note that these cookies will turn brown due to the mashed bananas, which is quite normal.

Room temperature

These fluffy banana and chocolate oatmeal cookies can keep for about 3 to 4 days at room temperature in an airtight container.

Refrigerator

These cookies can easily be stored for 1 week in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Freezer

These cookies can be frozen for up to 3 months! It’s ideal for making a few batches in advance.

My favorite way to store them in an airtight container or freezer bag is by separating the cookie rows with waxed paper or parchment paper.
