Healthy 2-Ingredient Banana Oatmeal Cookies Recipe
With only two ingredients and in just 25 minutes, you could be staring at a fresh batch of these healthy oatmeal banana cookies!
Picture this: Work has never felt more tiring than it does right now. Karen, your boss, is on your ass for the presentation (or whatever the heck you do) that ought to have been ready yesterday. You sit on your chair, slouching ever so lightly, glaring at the stack of papers you have in front of you then the worst happens. Your stomach begins to growl.

The riper, the better! I used just two girthy overripe bananas for this easy recipe, and those were enough for roughly a dozen of these bad boys, but you can consider using more if you’re looking to make a bigger batch.
Just remember to increase the oats in the same proportion!
This recipe calls for rolled oats, but feel free to use some oatmeal or porridge oats if that’s what you’ve got handy.
