TikTok Recipes in Action: Easy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


Caterina Koch, Staff Writer

We are all at home these days because of the pandemic and remote school, and the way many of Gen-Z has been aiding this boredom has been with using the popular social media app TikTok. The short sixty-second clips featuring a variety of topics including dances, fitness, pets, singing, and cooking/baking. 

Recently I saw a TikTok of an easy oatmeal chocolate-chip cookie recipe, containing only five ingredients! 

Ingredients: Recipe yields 12 cookies

– 2 cups of oats, oat flour, or both

– ½ cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips

– 1 ripe banana (mashed)

– splash of almond milk (about ¼ of a cup)

– honey/maple syrup 


Step 1: Mash banana

Step 2: If you would like more of a cookie consistency use oat flour (if you do not have oat flour, you can use a blender and blend the whole oats into a powder consistency; I split the recipe, ½ oat flour, and ½ whole oats)

Step 3: Combine mashed banana and oats of your choice 

Step 4: Add a splash of almond milk

Step 5: Add sweetener (optional) 

Step 6: Combine ½ cup of chocolate chips

Step 7: Roll each part of the dough and press down into a circular shape 

Step 7: Cook on a non-stick baking sheet at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15 minutes
