Microwave Chocolate Chip Banana Oatmeal Cookie

I have baked a similar cookie before using a recipe from Dr. Fuhrman's website (see blog post) using an oven. I saw a Facebook post with a recipe for this cookie using a microwave and I decided to try this approach.  The base of the recipe is the combination of banana and oatmeal.. You then can add anything you want.  I opted for chocolate chips (or morsel) and raisins.  The chocolate chips give the cookie the comforting gooey chocolatey taste and the raisins enhance its sweetness.  Both of course have excellent nutritional values.

Note no sugar or sweetener was added.  The sweetness comes from the banana itself and the raisins and chocolate chips.  You can add chopped apples and nuts also if you want.  I decided to add some sprinkles for color to brighten the cookie and also my day.  I just had this for breakfast.  My husband, the picky taster, gave this the thumbs up before he left for work.

Microwaveable cookies are excellent as far as portion control is concerned.  You take one serving and microwave it anytime you want a cookie.

Microwave Chocolate Chip Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Servings 8 (1 cookie per serving)


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup oatmeal (quick cooking)
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chip 
  • 1/4 cup raisin
  • sprinkles for decoration (optional)
Mix thoroughly the ripe banana and oatmeal with a fork in a small bowl.  Add the chocolate chips and raisins. Divide the dough into 8 portions.  Shape one portion into a circle and place it on a microwaveable plate. Microwave this cookie for 40 seconds  at 100 % power (I have 1000 watt microwave).  Put sprinkle on top for decoration if you want.  Save the rest of the dough in the refrigerator for later when the craving for a chocolate cookie strikes.

Note:  The nutrition facts below do not include the sprinkles.
