RECIPE: BANANA OATMEAL COOKIES
These are the most simplistic cookies ever. Monkey made our first batch with just a little help from me to find and measure out the ingredients. You start with two ingredients -- bananas and oatmeal -- and from there the cookie is up to you. We added dark chocolate chips, cranberries and cinnamon for a yummy cookie that the kids devoured.
2 ripe bananas
1 1/2 cup of large flake oats
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup cranberries
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350◦F. In a medium bowl, mash bananas and add the oats. Add any additional ingredients you crave (dried cherries, nuts, etc.).
Using a tablespoon, scoop out the batter and place the balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 minutes, until the cookies are firm and turning golden brown around the edges.
