Two Ingredient Healthy Banana Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe

Banana Oatmeal raisin cookie recipe

I would prefer a bag of salty potato chips over cookies any day of the week however I’m officially addicted to banana oatmeal raisin cookies!  Easy to make, takes little to no effort, only TWO natural ingredients and no processed sugar.  I made them a few weeks ago and have been eating them non-stop.  I’m already on my fourth batch…not sure if this is a good thing (lol)?  Yes they are THAT delicious.  It’s like banana bread and oatmeal raisin cookies all in one.  Yummy!

I wouldn’t even call this a recipe.  It’s basically mixing two simple ingredients (plus optional add in) in a bowl and throwing them in the oven.  It’s really that easy.  If you lack cooking or baking skills, this is fool proof.  I’m always trying to think of healthy alternatives for Milan and I to eat (still nursing) and don’t want to deprive her of fun things like cookies.

I don’t feel guilty giving these to her because there aren’t any processed boxed ingredients that you can’t pronounce.  It’s all natural, gluten free (use gluten free oats), nut free, vegan and vegetarian.  It’s a great snack to pack in the car or have for breakfast when you’re in a hurry.

Here’s how easy it is:

Ingredients:

– 2 large or 4 small ripened bananas

– 2 cups of organic old fashion gluten free oats (I use THIS ONE)

**FYI – I use all organic ingredients but this is not necessary**

Optional ingredients:

raisins

– vanilla extract

– chocolate chips

– coconut flakes

Steps:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Put bananas and oats in a large mixing bowl and mash by hand with a fork. Mix until it becomes a smooth consistency. (you can leave small chunks of banana – super yummy)

3. Add 1/2 cup of raisins or your choice of add in. (I use these measuring cups)

4. Use extra virgin coconut oil as an alternative to non-stick spray and spread with a paper towel onto your cookie sheet.

5. Use a large spoon to scoop out round dough balls onto cookie sheet. Flatten with your hand or spoon. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cookies look slightly golden (I like mine a little crispy on top). Remove from oven and let cool.

6. Enjoy and try not eat the entire batch in one sitting (just kidding).  For reals, it will be hard not too!  Store in a air tight glass container if there’s any left (lol).

    attempt to get the hold of it!
