Banana & Oatmeal Cookies
It’s only normal to have a sweet tooth or craving from time to time and it’s entirely possible to enjoy a cookie without butter, added sugar, and other crazy stuff that makes you feel guilty. At minimum all you need is rolled oats, a banana and an oven. A non-stick baking sheet and parchment paper will help too.
1 Cup Rolled Oats
Whatever floats your boat
Heat your oven to 350 degrees. Mash your banana with a fork, a ripe banana is best. If you have a food processor use it to make a coarse flour with the oats. It’s not necessary to make a little four but I think it makes a better cookie.
Combine the banana and oatmeal. A one banana to one cup oatmeal seems to be the perfect ratio. Add any other ingredient you choose.
Shape the “dough” into cookies and place on a parchment paper lines baking sheet (it’s the best for non-stick and easy clean up). Bake for 15 minutes and enjoy shortly after removing the cookies from the oven. You can save them for a day or so but honestly they are best fresh. Only make what you need!
Sometimes it is okay to enjoy a little dessert. Enjoy these.
