2 Ingredient “Cookie”

February 3, 2014

Hello!

I hope you’ve been loving Sarah’s posts as much as I have!  She is great at what she does.  I’ve been a little preoccupied with my new bundle of joy, but have had the opportunity to cook a little more due to this Polar Vortex affecting the country!  Unfortunately I haven’t taken nearly as many photos of cooking and baking as I should.  I did take pictures of this little treat, probably because it was so easy to make.  I do have to comment that it wasn’t terribly enjoyable… as a cookie for sure.  It might be good in yogurt or something else.

I was searching pinterest and found this little recipe: 2 Ingredient Cookies

I was really excited for a healthy recipe that used my old bananas!  Everyone on the website talked about how great these were; no complaints!  So I made a double batch… here’s how to make them.

Ingredients:
-2 ripe bananas
-1 cup oats (I used rolled oats, maybe that was the problem)

Optional ingredients:
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-Chocolate chips
-Walnuts
-Raisins
-Cinnamon

Procedure:
Mash the banana up with the oats.  Add a few mix-ins, don’t over do it or it won’t stick together.

Cook on 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  The other blog says to cook longer if you want them crispier… mine turned out chewier.

I’d repurpose these to be a crumble in yogurt or oatmeal.  On their own they were just kind of chewy… not the texture I like for cookies.

Let me know if you try these… I know I didn’t really sell them, but maybe with steel oats or another type of oats.

Good luck!
