banana oatmeal cookies

banana cookie brown sugar banana cookie baked

“Two ingredient” cookies have been taking the world- or at least pinterest- by storm, so I thought I’d give them a try. I adjusted them a little and tried them two different ways. Chocolate chips made them okay, but I have to admit that adding some brown sugar made them really seem like cookies and still be pretty healthy (top with brown sugar, bottom picture without). No surprise, in recent months since I made these, more and more ingredients have been added to them (peanut butter, cinnamon, coconut oil) because without oil or sweetness, they’re just a tad too bland.

Makes: 15-18 cookies

Ingredients:
2 overripe bananas
1 c quick oats (rolled will work too)
1/4 c chocolate chips (or more if you want)
1/4 c- 1/2 c brown sugar (to your tastes)

Directions:
1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet with either a silicone liner or spray with baking spray.
2) Mash the overripe bananas.
3) Stir in the oats until coated.
4) Add in chocolate chip and brown sugar (if using).
5) Drop by heaping tablespoons onto the baking sheet.
6) Bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove and cool on a baking rack. Store them covered.
