You guys. These are real! And clean. And amazingly yummy. And beautifully simple and quick to make. I guess I’m pretty drawn to simplicity when it comes to recipes… If its healthy, tastes good, and fast… Give it to me! In this case, its a fun bonus that I get to say I’m eating cookies for breakfast!
The Only Ingredients:
2 large bananas
2 cups oats
Optional Add-In Ideas:
Dried cranberries (that’s what I did!)
Chopped nuts of any kind
Milk or dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Blend oats in food processor until they become the consistency of flour.
In a large bowl or food processor, combine mashed bananas with oats until smooth. Add in half a cup or so of your favorite add-in. I used dried cranberries and it was delicious!
Spray baking sheet with nonstick spray. Drop dough in large tablespoons onto cookie sheet and flatten with a rubber spatula (these cookies do not naturally flatten in the oven. Learned that the hard way, as you can see!).
Bake 9-12 minutes or until cookies are set.
Remove, let cool, and enjoy!
Makes 12-16 cookies.
