Two Ingredient Cookies


'Sweet tooth' is definitely not ever anything that comes to mind for me, but I can definitely appreciate any healthy, wonderful mix of ingredients. I have a feeling you will not believe this recipe until you try it. With that said, the base of this cookie LITERALLY has two ingredients. Yup, you heard me right, two ingredients! You still have the ability to add your own 'chef' flare, however. In the recipe below, I decided to add chocolate chips and pecans as well. Have at it people!

Two Ingredient Cookies (Makes 12 small cookies)

3 Bananas

1-1 1/2 cups of oats (ready-made oatmeal)

.... That's it.

But I added:

1/4 cup of Chocolate Chips

1/4 cup of crushed Pecans

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

The key here is to use old bananas. However, who has time to wait for them to get old? Right? Right. So I would buy new bananas and stick them in the microwave for about one minute. Once they are slightly soft, mash them up with a fork. Add dry oats. Then, if you wish to cheat and add more ingredients like myself, this is where you would do so. I would recommend things like pecans, chocolate chips, pumpkin puree, caramel, and the list goes on.


Form the 'cookie dough' into whatever size cookie you would prefer on a greased (don't forget this) baking sheet. Pop these heavenly, healthy, knock your socks off cookies in the oven for about 15 minutes or until browned.

You can't go wrong with a cookie that weighs in at about 45 calories. Eat 'em while their hot, eat to your hearts content and serve with milk!



  1. Love this recipe! So easy and so many different ingredient options to mix it up! My favorite "add-ins" are chopped walnuts, peanut butter, and butterscotch chips :)

  2. Thank you Jessica! Awesome to hear the 'mix ups'. I need to try some of those :)
