2 Ingredient Cookie

After Little A started on solids, I have been hunting for a lot of quick and healthy recipes. Specially snacks and quick bites to be in particular. A always loved snatching biscuits from his cousin sis. And since store bought biscuits are not healthy for babies I was searching for some healthy cookie recipes. Was a little unsure in the beginning when I saw this 2 INGREDIENT COOKIE. Yeah you heard me right 2 ingredients. Hence I made a very small test batch of just 5 cookies. Well later I wished I had baked more. 

You need just 2 ingredients to make this cookie and you can add any add on to it. Like nuts, currents, choco chips etc. I made 3 with just the 2 ingredients and added some chopped chocolate on Big A's batch. The cookies were really good and Little A just relished it. He began asking for more pointing at the oven. So easy to make and the healthiest breakfast cookie you can ever have. 

Recipe Makes a Dozen

You Will Need:
2 large overly ripe bananas, mashed 
1 Cup of Oats, Regular / Instant anything

The Baking:
Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tray with parchment paper / foil. 
Place the mashed banana and oats in a bowl. Mix well until combined. Divide the mix equally into 12 portion and place them on the baking tray and press down. The cookie won't spread when baking you can make it as thicker or as thinner you want. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 - 20 mins. Once done remove and cool on a cooling rack. Once cooled store in air tight container. 

NOTE: The sweetness comes from the bananas. So its best you use a very very ripe banana. Those with blackened skin is what i used. And frozen and thawed banana too works perfect. 


Happy Baking!
