These are pretty much cookies at first, banana bread the 2nd day. When they come out of the oven they are like warm chocolate chip cookies. The next day, after they set a bit, they become a little soft, more like a bread then a cookie. These have a lot of moisture, so they would be great to freeze and pop out when you're ready to eat them. If you don't freeze them, make sure to eat them within a couple of days.
The best part about this recipe besides it being super healthy and easy, is you can switch it up any way you like. You can add chocolate, dried fruit, nuts, etc. There is no added sugar, butter or flour! Just good ol' bananas and oats.
- 2 large bananas (ripe works best)
- 1 cup quick cooking oats
- chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°
In a medium bowl, mash the bananas until smooth. Add the oats and chocolate chips; stir until combined.
Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper (these will stick!) and scoop 1 tablespoon of the "batter" onto the sheet. It should make approximately 16 cookies.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. Enjoy right away or freeze for later. Easy peasy!
