Maybe you’ve heard of/baked these before, maybe you haven’t. The point is, these babies are proven craving satisfiers and you won’t feel guilty in the morning.
Go to your kitchen and look for a couple of bananas and some quick-oats (regular work too). Boom. You’re done. That’s it! You’ve now got the makings for a yummy Friday night in watching Love Actually and sipping on tea.
Usually the bananas are better when they are super ripe aka past the point of eating but not quite brown. I find they just have more flavour that way and are much easier to mush – yes, that’s a technical cooking term.
Quick oats work best because they are usually smaller. If you’ve got regular oats, just chop them up a bit, or leave them if you’re into chunky oatmeal cookies.
The best ratio is 2 large bananas and 1 cup of oats. This makes enough so you have a couple the next day. I will say these cookies are best eaten right out of the oven, but they are a fantastic mid-day pick-me-up too! Mash everything together!
Now, you’ll notice in the photos that I have included chocolate chips in mine. That’s the beauty of these, you can add A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G you want to them! Walnuts, raisins, pistachios… the list goes on. Form into a rounded shape – but really, form them how ever you want.
I go from this recipe if you really want to see one. But after you’ve set the oven to 350 and slide those babies in for 15 mins on a greased cookie sheet, a recipe you need not!
YUMMY! Happy baking and I hope you’ve enjoyed this.
