Banana Cookies

After trying this two-ingredient (really 4) cookie you'll never look at two super overripe bananas again! I had seen this on Pinterest and thought it would be worth a shot since two overripe bananas happen more often than I'd like to admit. If Patrick liked banana bread then I may never had these cookies since I would have something to use the overripe bananas for. The two primary ingredients are the overripe bananas and oats. Then the additional ingredients are added to your liking/taste preference! For this particular batch I added pumpkin pie spice and mini chocolate chips. The pumpkin pie spice masks the banana flavor and fooled Patrick! Read on for how to make these...

Banana Cookies from the burlap bag
2 large old bananas
1 cup of  oats (quick or regular! if you use regular, we’d suggest chopping them a little so everything holds together better)
Mix those two together. Old bananas are amazing for this, but you can use fresh ones too.

Then add in what sounds yummy to you! (or nothing!) [The burlap bag] loves:
-a handful of chocolate chips
-crushed walnut pieces

Since all bananas are different sizes, the needed measurements can vary. If it seems too runny and the cookies would flatten out too much, add in more oatmeal. And make sure to not add in TOO many mix-ins as the cookies won’t hold together very well. We made 16 cookies with those measurements. We cook them at 350 degrees for 15 minutes on a GREASED cookie sheet.

What do you do with overripe bananas??

  1. only rarely make banana bread - it's not one of our favorites either. I mainly try not to buy too many at a time. But I will try this one.
