Sometimes I just want something yummy without all the pizzazz and added fat and calories. I’ve been trying to get rid of some bad habits and am in the process of cleaning up my diet. That’s where these super simple 2 Ingredient Oatmeal Banana Cookies can be a big saver, because whether I’ve invited it or not… cravings always come knocking! Why not have a go-to recipe on hand that can be made anytime?
If you haven’t guessed already by the name of these cookies, the two ingredients are simply Quick Oats and Ripe Bananas. You can add 1 Cup Quick Oats and 2 Over Ripe Bananas and mash them up to form a simple cookie to bake. This is also an awesome way to use up those bananas that you might usually be getting ready to throw away and a whole lot lighter than a traditional banana bread recipe.
Bananas offer the perfect amount of sweetness for these cookies and oats give them a great consistency and filling power to satisfy! Why not give them a try?
