Occasionally I stumble upon something on Pinterest that is actually as simple and tasty as it appears to be. (Simple means as few ingredients and prep time as possible. Tasty means it should be relatively healthy but makes me feel like I am eating something that is totally not.)
The other night while craving something sweet, I decided to look at some of my pins and choose something to actually try (as opposed to just hoarding pins on my “healthy food” board.) MUCH to my surprise I found the AWESOMEST cookies!
Are you ready for the recipe?
(2) Two ripe bananas (1) Cup oatmeal
Yep folks, that’s it! Mash em’ up and mix em’ together. You can add anything you want to jazz it up if you would like. The ones you see pictured have dried cranberries and slivered almonds (and were my afternoon snack along with a cup of french pressed coffee.) You could also add chocolate chips, coconut, or about anything else that you would deem appropriate. Can you say DELISH?
Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. (I flip mine about half way through for a nice little glow on both sides but that is totally not necessary.)

P.S. These cookies are totally breakfast worthy. Enjoy!
P.S.S. I am aware that “awesomest” is not a word but because these cookies earn high marks in the simple and tasty categories, awesomest was the best word choice.
