When I first saw this, I was a bit skeptical. Cookies. Healthy. These two words don’t normally go together in my vocabularly…..but when I read through The Burlap Bag’s recipe for 2-ingredient cookies, it was like the sun came up and you can’t imagine how happy I was. COOKIES that could be….not that bad for you? That’s right up my alley!
2-ingredients. Banana. Oats. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees. DONE! Quick, Easy, and Genius. No added sugar or weird ingredients here. I can’t believe I never tried to do this before! The Burlap Bag added optional mix-ins to theirs–walnuts and a light sprinkle of some chocolate chips. I think I’d stick with those too. If I wanted to veer this recipe into more traditional cookie territory, I think I might sub the walnuts with chopped mac nuts. OOH and I’ll sub white chocolate chips too. I think we’re on to something beautiful here.
Please click through on any of the images to see the Burlap Bag’s easy-peasy recipe and their list of recommended mix-ins. (PS I have been on their site for the past 30 minutes–so many neat tricks, DIY, and recipes! I should make myself a batch of…4 ingredient cookies as a snack–I’m going to learn how to DIY a spice shaker)
