2 Ingredient banana cookies

Yummy 2 ingredient banana cookies
I recently had some girlfriends rave about these 2 ingredient banana cookies on Facebook and couldn’t wait to try them myself. They definitely didn’t disappoint. Don’t expect them to taste like a regular cookie in terms of texture and consistency, they’re more like a no bake energy bite in that regard.

They’re quick, easy to make and quite tasty. Also, one of the great things about them is that they’re pretty healthy, so you don’t feel that bad about continually popping them in your mouth or giving them to your kiddies for snacks and/or dessert. Which is a good thing, because let’s face it, they’re quite addictive.

banana cookies


  • 2 very ripe organic medium bananas
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • Optional: 1/4 cup chocolate/cinnamon chips, dried fruits (like raisins, craisins, figs, dates, apricots, pre-soaked dried goji berries), nuts, hemp or sunflower seeds, ground flax seeds etc. Also, feel free to add in spices like ground cinnamon or nutmeg.


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. and spritz your baking sheet with some non stick baking spray.
  • In a bowl, mash the bananas, add in the oats and mix until both ingredients are fully incorporated.
  • Grab a tablespoon and scoop little balls of the batter onto the cookie sheet.
  • Bake for about 13-15 minutes until a golden colour appears.
  • Remove from oven, place cookies on a rack and allow them to fully cool.
  • Optional: I like to sprinkle on a tiny bit of cinnamon sugar as soon as I get them out of the oven, it adds a certain je nais se quois.

  2. I love this recipe! We made some with twice the rolled oats, 2 tbsp ground flax seeds and 1 tsp cinnamon. Since my daughter is learning about 3 dimensional shapes at school this week I shaped them into rectangles – they where a big hit in her snack box! 🙂 Keep to great ideas coming Char.
