You guys, I love cookies. Love. Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite, and that recipe from The New York Times a few years ago is my go-to (they’re especially great for ice cream sandwiches, too). But I love sugar cookies, gingersnaps, peanut butter cookies, sandwich cookies–basically any kind of cookie, with the exception of those with dried fruit (ick!).
Now obviously, those kinds of cookies, especially when consumed in multiples, are not particularly healthy. So I was thrilled to discover these two-ingredient cookies on The Burlap Bag via Cup of Jo. All you need to make them is two old bananas and a cup (maybe a little more) of oatmeal–and that’s it. I added a handful of chocolate chips to mine, but they’re still really healthy and they’re irresistible, especially right out of the oven. Yum.
All you have to do is mash the bananas and oats together, then stir in whatever add-ins you like (walnuts would be good, and next time I’m going to add some cinnamon and a dash of salt to take the flavor up a notch). Bake for 10-12 minute and boom: Delicious, healthy cookies that you don’t have to feel bad about eating. Now that I can get behind.
