When someone on Twitter said there’s a cookie recipe that only called for 2 bananas and 1 cup of quick oats, I couldn’t believe it. I clicked on the link; it was a recipe from the blog The Burlap Bag. I didn’t read it wrong, so this two ingredient cookies really exist!
I didn’t have quick oats, so I used almond granola. It turned out great, too! One thing that is also great about this recipe is the fact that you don’t have to put sugar into the “dough”. The sweetness of the cookie comes from the bananas, so it is a totally guilt-free snack/dessert!
You will need:
- 2 bananas
- 1 cup quick oats (I used almond granola)
Also, you can add whatever you want to make it yummier: chocolate chips, raisins, walnut pieces, cinnamon, etc. I put some dark chocolate covered almond pieces. 🙂
Measurements can vary, since all bananas are different sizes. So if you think your “dough” looks too wet, add more oatmeal (or granola). Also be careful not to add too much stuff, because the cookies won’t hold together very well.
1. Grease your cookie sheet and preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Mix all the ingredients. When well mixed, make the cookies and put it on the cookie sheet. I measured like this: 1 tablespoon of cookie dough = 1 large cookie.
3. Bake them for 15 minutes.
And that’s it! Very complicated, right?
These cookies taste great! They are very healthy too, since you’re eating just bananas and oatmeal.
I made 8 large cookies with this recipe. But you can always make smaller ones and have more cookies.
Hope you like it! Tell me if you add something else on the recipe. 🙂
