EASY BAKE 4-INGREDIENT COOKIES

Ever get a craving for freshly baked cookies? This quick and healthy recipe only uses four ingredients - which I bet you have on hand right now! Not a fan of chocolate? Simply substitute raisins, cherries, coconut or whatever mix-ins you like best.

Ingredients

  • 1 large, ripe banana
  • 1/3 cup (85g) nut butter
  • 3/4 cup (105g) oats
  • 1/4 cup (37.5g) chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350oF / 180oC
  2. Mash banana in a bowl. Combine nut butter, oats and chocolate chips with banana.
  3. Scope out 14-15 cookies onto a lined baking sheet (if you skip the chocolate chips you will have fewer cookies)
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until firm

Note: Depending on the type of oats you use, sometimes the cookies are a little chewy. Simply put the cookies in a container with a lid when warm to allow cookies to absorb the moisture. They will be less chewy within 30-60 minutes. If they last through the day, I typically store them in the refrigerator, so they don't go bad. After all, they are made of fruit.
