Three - or four - Ingredient Cookies
So, another pair of over-ripe, brown bananas on the counter. Again. You know the story. I always look out for ways to use them up (just eating them is not an option), and somehow I rarely re-visit my old recipes, preferring to try new ones. And ideally fairly healthy ones, since I'm mostly baking for the kids. (I'm not that fond of bananas myself, actually.)
Pille of Nami-Nami just posted about these amazing cookies, and I had to try them. Three ingredients? Really? Just bananas, oats and whatever mix-ins you want? It kind of sounds too good to be true, but alas, it is true. They really do work.
Being a constant rule-breaker, I couldn't decide on just ONE mix-in, so I used a few spoonfuls each of raisins and dark chocolate, and they turned out great! They're so quick to make, and really quite reasonably healthy. Success!
The Three-Ingredient Cookie
2 ripe bananas, mashed
200 ml oats
small handful of mix-ins, like raisins, chocolate or nuts
Mix everything together, and shape small balls on a cookie sheet. Bake at 175°C for about 15 minutes, until lightly golden.
