Yes. For real. Two ingredients. (Yes, you can add other things if you wantâ€¦ but you donâ€™t HAVE to!) I made this up after seeing a â€œhealthy breakfast cookieâ€ that wanted me to add eggs, applesauce, baking soda, etc and I said NO!
And also, I hate those â€œtwo/three ingredientâ€ recipes where one of the ingredients is a boxed cookie mix. and the other is a can of pie filling. CMON PEOPLE.
2 large old bananas
1 cup of Â oats (quick or regular! if you use regular, weâ€™d suggest chopping them a little so everything holds together better)
Mix those two together. Old bananas are amazing for this, but you can use fresh ones too. I buy a bunch of bananas, let them get old on my counter, and then stick â€™em all in the freezer.
Then add in what sounds yummy to you! (or nothing!) We love:
-a handful of chocolate chips
-crushed walnut pieces
Since all bananas are different sizes, the needed measurements can vary. If it seems too runny and the cookies would flatten out too much, add in more oatmeal. And make sure to not add in TOO many mix-ins as the cookies wonâ€™t hold together very well. The ones in these photos have a handful of chocolate chips, a teaspoon or two or cinnamon, and 1/4ish a cup of crushed walnuts.
We made 16 cookies with those measurements. We cook them at 350 degrees for 15 minutes on a GREASED cookie sheet. Donâ€™t forget the greased partâ€¦. I did once and had to scrub my pan forever.
