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.
- 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.
