Healthy Banana Cookies

Amazingly, these can be made with only two ingredients, AND are a good way to use overripe bananas.  Great texture, no added sugar, very good.  I add nuts for a bit of crunch.
Follow this link for the recipe: 
Healthy Banana Cookies

  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed. Very, very ripe is best.
  • 1 cup of uncooked oats (quick or regular, but not steel cut)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped nuts

Night before:  
Set oven to come on at 350°F in the morning. 
 Spray a non-stick cookie sheet with cooking spray or use a Silpat.

In the morning:
Combine the mashed bananas and oats in a bowl. Fold in the walnuts and place a tablespoon of each on the cookie sheet.
Bake 15 minutes.   Serve warm.
 Notes:Add any or all of the following:

  • 1T sugar
  • vanilla
  • cinnamon
  • egg
  • mini-chocolate chips
