Happy National Oatmeal Cookie Day! In honor of this special cookie holiday I made that infamous 2 ingredient cookie recipe that’s been around since the dawn of time (or Pinterest, I’m not sure exact dates). But I made this batch of cookies super amazing by adding chocolate chips. Yeah, you can add raisins but… um, why?
This cookie recipe is super easy, doesn’t have any processed sugar and can be made gluten free (make sure you get gluten free oats if you have an allergy). Since they’re pretty healthy, I think adding in chocolate chips is 100% necessary to be officially considered a cookie.
The next time you have super ripe bananas… add in some oats and chocolate chips and you’ll have a delicious batch of chocolate chip oatmeal cookies in about 15 minutes!
3 ingredient oatmeal cookies recipe…
1 cup oats (quick cook)
2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup chocolate chips (or raisins)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Smash banana, mix in oats. Add chocolate chips.
*Spray baking sheet with nonstick.
Form cookies (roll into balls and gently press down) and place on baking sheet.
Bake for 9 to 15 minutes or until firm. (Baking time depends on how big you make them.) They are a soft, not crispy cookie.
Store leftovers in refrigerator.
Tip: Carefully heat leftover cookies in the microwave for a few seconds before eating for optimum deliciousness.
*It’s important to use non-stick spray or a silicone baking mat since these cookies don’t have any added fat and may stick to the pan.
