Yeah you heard right, three ingredient cookies (two if you’re not fussed about adding chocolate, but I definitely am), which means this is the simplest and quickest recipe I think I’ve ever put on my blog! I was looking for a way to get a chocolatey baking fix that wouldn’t take too long, as I’ve been so busy recently that I don’t really have time to go all-out, then I stumbled across this article on BuzzFeed: http://www.buzzfeed.com/peggy/34-insanely-simple-two-ingredient-recipes – and just yes, yes to all of the recipes!
Bananas and oats are both dead cheap as well, so I don’t really feel bad about making a batch of nine cookies and eating them all in half an hour… I can make more, let’s not judge.
Please do try these, I know most of you who read my blog just use it as food porn and like to look but don’t really try a lot yourself, which is fair game, I really appreciate your support and it’s great that you like my site – but seriously, try these if you try nothing else, they’re so easy and taste lovely, and they’re pretty damn healthy as well!
Two very large handfuls of rolled oats
Some chocolate chips, or any other mix-ins you fancy, like cinnamon or nuts (just don’t use too much or they won’t bind together very well)
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius and grease a baking tray.
- Mix all of the ingredients together into a smooth consistency, then bake for 15 minutes until golden and firm.
Makes about 9
Quick update, even though I posted this about an hour ago – I just bought a banana and made a batch AGAIN for when I get back from the theatre tonight (it’s the dress run of Sweeney Todd tonight, ahh). I’m such a chocolate fiend, it’s a wonder I’m not obese.
