4 Ingredient Steel Cut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I usually make my quick oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with quick cooking oats but I had a container of steel cut oats that were going unused. If you want you can make this recipe with traditional quick cooking oats it will be great. The steel cut oats add more chew to the cookie and have to be baked a little bit longer because the Steel Cut Oats take longer to cook.

These cookies are about as healthy as a cookie gets. They have 2 ripe bananas, chia seeds, dark chocolate chips, and steel cut oats. That means no flour, no sugar, no butter, and no other ingredients. The banana acts as a binder and keeps the cookie together while also very moist.

I also love these 4 Ingredient – Steel Cut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies because I am indulging in a cookie yet they also keep me full. 1/4 cup of Steel-Cut Oats only has 140 calories, 5 grams of protein, 27 carbs, 4 grams of fiber, and 0 grams of sugar!

These 4 Ingredient Cookies are also fun because you can subsitute whatever you have on hand! Use walnuts, vanilla or even cinnamon.

Here’s what you need!

  • 1 cup of steel cut oatmeal OR quick cooking oats
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup of dark chocolate chip or semi sweet chips

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mash banana with a fork until soft, fold in the 1 cup of oats, chia seeds, and dark chocolate chips last.
  2. Use a cookie scoop to form 1 inch round balls and flatten down with top of cookie scoop. If using steel oats you will need to cook for 20-25 minutes or the oatmeal will still be hard and crunchy. If using quick cooking oats reduce cooking time and check to make sure they don’t burn.

I love how simple these cookies are. You don’t need to add any other ingredients to get a great and healthy cookie! The chocolate chips help if you are feeding them to kids! My nephew loves anything that involves chocolate.

If the steel cut oats do not seem like they have softened enough, keep baking. If you’re not sure about the texture – use quick regular oats!

Enjoy!

      Thanks Kristin! Just be sure to cook them a little longer because they are a little crunchy due to the fact steel oats take a while to cook! Let me know how it turns out!

      Hi Lynne, thanks so much for commenting back! I am so happy you made them and they turned out great. Did you use steel cut oats or old fashioned oats when you made them?
