2-Ingredient Banana Cookies (and Neither Is Sugar)

Two Ingredient Banana CookiesI’ve seen versions of this cookie recipe online in many places, so when it was my family’s turn to bring a snack to my 4-year-old’s preschool class, we gave it a shot. What a hit! It’s the only time we’ve ever come home with an empty bowl, to my toddlers’ total dismay. They were really looking forward to eating those leftovers and I don’t blame them because there are many things to love about these cookies.

First, they’re simple. You mash up two very ripe bananas with old-fashioned oats and bake. That’s the whole technique right there. But you could also add things to your liking: walnuts, raisins, almonds, chia seeds (which we used), dried cranberries, etc. Add whatever mix-ins your kids enjoy (whatever you want them to eat more of in a perfect world). Second, they’re sugar-free. And third, they’re full of great-for-you ingredients.

We have a fresh bunch of bananas sitting on our counter right now, just waiting for a brown spot or two to appear before we whip up a new batch to keep for ourselves.

    There is a huge difference between sugar free and no sugar added. Ripe bananas are rather high in its natural sugar. Still much better than adding it.

    The sugar in the banana also has the fiber of the banana to help balance it out. It's gentle on the body, unlike table sugar. I love making these cookies with a hearty dose of cinnamon, vanilla, and a pinch of salt.
