banana oatmeal power cookies

I have a confession to make: I love cookies. I know some of you will always choose cupcakes, pastries, donuts, or some other sweet treat instead, but I have this undeniable love for cookies. More specifically, warm, just-out-of-the-oven cookies. Mouth-watering! So you can imagine my skepticism when I came across The Burlap Bag's recipe for 2-ingredient cookies using ripe bananas and oatmeal. How can they be that easy to make? I had to try it, and they are so delicious. Just the right amount of sweetness and chewiness. 

They cover all areas, really. Breakfast, lunch, dessert... I would eat these any time of the day. And, bonus, they're healthy! I call them 'power' cookies because they're perfect to save for later and grab one on the go. Add in nuts, raisins, chocolate chips, cinnamon, or even almond butter for a little extra flavour. Just try not to devour the whole batch in one sitting ;) Have a sweet Wednesday! xo

Two ripe bananas
1 c. Whole grain oats
Handful raw almonds, chopped
+ Anything else you choose!

Add the oatmeal to the bananas in a large mixing bowl and mash until oats are coated. Mix in the almonds or any other add-ins that you wish. Scoop onto a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Makes about 15 delicious (and easy) cookies!


  1. They look totally yummy! I am a cookie nut too but use my self control to not make or buy them. These look too good to be true...I will have to cave in....

  2. These look so good! I have the WORST sweet tooth so anything I can disguise as a treat, but is actually healthy, is always good :) Definitely need to try these out!
