2-Ingredient Banana Cookies (Neither Is Sugar)

Nothing is better than a healthy snack for kids. Except when you find a fast and easy snack for kids that happens to be healthy too. I also love these banana cookies because they’re so versatile. Just start with whole oats and ripe bananas, then add anything (or nothing) at all.

How to Make 2-Ingredient Banana Cookies:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper, butter or a silicone liner. Simply mash the bananas in a bowl the add the oats and stir. If you choose to include more add-ins, throw ’em in. Form the “dough” into little mounds, about 2 inches across, and note: they won’t rise or change shape in the oven. Bake for 12 minutes.
