2 Ingredient Oatmeal Banana Cookie Recipe

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?

Make these delicious cookies with only 2 ingredients!

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?

      Hi TeeLee, I am sooo happy you tried these and that they were a hit! That makes me smile ;) Thank you so much for stopping by!

  3. Not sure if these were bad because I used 3 bananas instead of 2 I probably should have added an extra half cup oatmeal but they came out mushy and tasted like raw banana not good really bummed I wasted my bananas

    • Dawn Lopez says:

      Hi Jayme, oh man that is a bummer! I would suspect that the 3 bananas would be the cause of the mushiness! So sorry you had a bad experience!

    I have seen this somewhere before, but I forgot all about them, I made them then and they were great and so easy, no bananas here today, but this is worth remembering. Thank you for sharing, I love the fact that they use no eggs, or the like. Good for people who have problems with gluten.
