Oatmeal-Banana (ONLY) Cookies.

Our stove has arrived, and is doing splendidly. Right now, potatoes are cooking for Shepherd's Pie for the family coming over. Nice to have people to cook for (and hopefully they like it). :)

But. I wanted cookies earlier this week. So I decided to cristen our oven's insides with this wonderful recipe form The Burlap Bag, where the recipe below is basically copy/pasted from.

They were amazing! I doubled the recipe, and it made 32 cookies. See below pictures.

Banana- Oatmeal (Only) Cookies


Yes. For real. Two ingredients. (Yes, you can add other things if you want… but you don’t HAVE to!) Since all bananas are different sizes, the needed measurements can vary. If it seems too runny and the cookies would flatten out too much, add in more oatmeal. And make sure to not add in TOO many mix-ins as the cookies won’t hold together very well. The ones in these photos have a handful of chocolate chips, a teaspoon or two or cinnamon, and 1/4ish a cup of crushed walnuts.
INGREDIENTS
2 large old bananas
1 cup of oats (quick or regular! if you use regular, we’d suggest chopping them a little so everything holds together better)
Then add in what sounds yummy to you!
INSTRUCTIONS
1. This made approx 16 cookies
2. 350 degrees for 15 minutes on a GREASED cookie sheet.

So. Simple.

Bananas, Quick Oats, bowl.
Smash em together.
Grease your baking sheet well!
Stare at them baking for 15 minutes.
Close-ups. Yum.

No Sugar, eggs or flour. How wonky is that? Still a cookie? I'm not sure, I'm thinking they are more like taste oatmeal-to-go.
