When one of my friends told me that she had made simple, healthy, and delicious cookies with only two ingredients, I was a little skeptical. I believed the simple and healthy part…but delicious? Really?
I was definitely surprised by how yummy these cookies were! All you need is two ripe bananas and one cup of oats. That’s it! You can leave it at that or add some mix-in options. Some of my favorite mix-ins are peanut butter (just a few spoonfuls), craisins, and white or regular chocolate chips. I’m allergic to most tree nuts, but I’m sure walnuts, almonds, or pecans would work well too if you like them!
Because all bananas are different sizes, sometimes you’ll have to play with the ratio of bananas and oats just a bit. You want to make sure that the batter is pretty wet, because otherwise after it is baked they wont taste very sweet…they will just taste like bland oats (and that’s not very yummy!) For that matter, don’t use too many mix-ins either, otherwise you’ll need to add more bananas. It’s important to use parchment paper or to grease your baking tray well to make sure they won’t stick. Use a spoon to plop the batter onto the baking sheet, and bake at 350°F for about 15 minutes.
Simple, easy, delicious! And because they are healthy, I don’t feel bad if I have two or three…dozen. Haha. Kidding! Maybe.
