Miraculous Banana Oat Cookies

I used to love to bake cookies.  I would also eat lots of those cookies while baking them so I stopped.  But I recently realized that I could still bake cookies if I did two things:

  1. A) Find recipes that did not include tons of sugar and unhealthy fats.
  2. B) Bake smaller quantities.

Hence the Miraculous Banana Oat Cookie recipe.  Technically these cookies only require two ingredients and the name says it all;  1 medium banana and ½ cup of rolled oats.

Of course there are endless variations.  Here is one:

1 medium overripe banana, mashed

½ cup old fashioned rolled oats

1 Tablespoon ground flax seed meal

½ t. vanilla

½ t. cinnamon

Mix the ingredients together,

drop by teaspoons onto baking sheet (greased or cover with parchment paper) and bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.

There are less than 300 calories in the entire recipe so you can eat them all with no guilt. Which I did. For breakfast.
