So what’s so awesome about these cookies? Well, just two ingredients for a start. Their tasty and you can customize them with your own mix-ins. Last, but not least, fiber from the oatmeal and the bananas! Both good for you.
Here goes with the recipe!
Two Ingredient Cookies
1 cup oats (I eat lots of oatmeal anyway!)
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350.
Step 2: Grease a cookie sheet. It’s very important to grease it because there are lots of sugars in the bananas which will STICK to the pan.
Step 3. Dump the oats in a mixing bowl.
Step 4. Peel the bananas and add them to the oats.
Step 5. Mash the bananas and oats together until the bind. There will be some chunks of bananas, but don’t leave too many big chunks.
Step 6. Using a tablespoon, measure out the banana/oat mix onto the cookie sheet. These cookies will not spread, so an inch between them is fine. You can flatten them a bit with the tablespoon.
Bake at 350 for fifteen minutes.
I found the above mix made about a dozen cookies.
Now for the fun part. Choose something to mix in before you bake! We’ve added some peanut butter. Nutella. Chopped walnuts and craisins. Raisins. Also some butterscotch morsels. Of course, you can also add chocolate chips.
I think a good rule of thumb is about two tablespoons of mix-ins and nothing way too wet, otherwise the banana/oat mixture will not hold together.
Hope you enjoy today’s recipe!
