I want to eat more oatmeal because it is good for me, but I don't like actual bowls of oatmeal. I'm also on a diet so I can't eat a regular high calorie oatmeal cookie.

Well today I found & made this recipe for 2 ingredient cookies - just bananas and quick oats. They are so good! (for a super low calorie heart healthy snack, that is - don't want expectations to be too high!)

http://www.theburlapbag.com/2012/07/2-i ... ur-choice/

I will definitely be making these again. Has anyone else ever made them? What did you mix in?

This is what I had lying around to mix in:
handful of chocolate chips
1/4 C hemp hearts
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
about 3 tbsp almond meal, because my bananas were huge and the dough seemed a little wet

Thanks! I added that to my favorites. It sounds like an awesome breakfast option for my lazy asparagus.

I bet my kid would love these! I'm totally going to do this as soon as we're well enough to go buy bananas.

Did you try freezing these, out of curiosity? Wondering if I could make a batch and freeze some to pull out as treats...

No I just made them today but that might be a good idea. I have a lot left and one of the comments say they don't last as long as regular cookies.

I have been freezing muffins and cookies so I can pull one out for L without needing to eat one myself. She'll chew on them cold, which seems gross to me. Its been really helpful for watching my weight, because otherwise I tend to eat things so as not to waste them.

Holy freakin' cow!!! That scares me almost as much as putting beans in vegan brownies does. Not wait, a cat eating a penis definitely scares me more.

I don't know - I've tried a black bean brownie recipe before, and it was pretty horrific.

Yeah, I was just going to say that I'm pretty sure black bean brownies are worse.

This thread inspired me to make some banana oat cookies tonight. I added peanut flour and raisins. They turned out... not good.

Cats are obligate carnpenisivores! That is why they have pointy teeth! They didn't climb up the food chain to eat vegetables! They are the ultimate paleos, the noble caveman snacking on the penises of their meaty, meaty prey. Beans will kill you.

I made these, and added cocoa because...chocolate!
They were really nice but I found they went off REALLY quick (I guess makes sense, seeing as they're bananas)...In a couple of days they were mouldy :(

Yep one of the comments on the recipe page said that too. I put mine in the fridge, i figured that would help and so far so good. In fact I just ate one now.

I made them as soon as I saw this post. Ha! I added chocolate chips, a pinch of salt, and a pinch of cinnamon.

Ours were all gone pretty rapidly, so no mold, but I'll stick them in the fridge next time....

Too bad Tofulish's avatar is sorta poorly photoshopped because the light reflection doesn't seem quite right. I totally ran into the cat-eating-a-hotdog pic this is based off of.
