Little Bites: Two Ingredient Cookies

Yes, I said two ingredient cookies.

I didn't believe it either. Seems like a trick or something I'd surely mess up!

The other evening while picking my son up at school, I was chatting with the director and Kane was demanding the "elephant book". I looked up and saw a stack of their magazine which does have the school mascot on the cover, Bubbles the Elephant. I absentmindedly handed it to him while I finished my conversation. When I got home, I flipped through it and saw that The Learning Experience was offering kid-friendly recipes in the magazine and the two ingredient cookie jumped out at me!

You literally only need two very ripe bananas (I know I'm not the only one with a couple of black bananas on the counter) and 1 cup of oats! I used steel cut quick oats because it's what I had here, but they do say to use the quick or to chop the regular ones. You mix that together and choose a mix-in (or don't). These can be raisins, coconut, cranberries, really anything.....I chose a big spoonful of peanut butter and a handful of chocolate chips (oink, oink!).

Mix that up and start spooning onto a greased cookie sheet or a Silpat mat. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 and enjoy about a dozen cookies!

These were a huge hit in our house, so I had to share.
