It Takes Two, Baby!: 2 ingredient cookies

February 20th, 2013

Two ingredient banana oats cookies…  I want to try them!  How ’bout you?


Two Ingredient Cookies

2 large old bananas

1 cup of quick oats

Mix those two together. Old bananas are amazing for this, but you can use fresh ones too. I buy a bunch of bananas, let them get old on my counter, and then stick ‘em buy personal narrative essay all in the freezer.


Then add in what sounds yummy to you! (or nothing!) You may want to try:

-a handful of chocolate chips

-crushed walnut pieces



Since all bananas are different sizes, the needed measurements can vary. If it seems too runny and the cookies would flatten out too much, add in more oatmeal. And make sure to not add in TOO many mix-ins as the cookies won’t hold together very well. The ones in these photos have a handful of chocolate chips, a teaspoon or two or cinnamon, and 1/4ish a cup of crushed walnuts.


Makes appox. 16 cookies.  Cook at 350 for 15 minutes on a greased cookie pan.  Greasing the pan is very important!
