Two Ingredient Cookies + Mix-Ins of Your Choice (Healthy!)

Two Ingredient Cookies -- Pocketful of Sugar

Healthy cookies with just two main ingredients? And those ingredients are bananas and oats? Say what?! I swear, you are not being Punk’d. This recipe is the real deal. These “cookies” are sugar-free, egg-free, flour-free, and guilt-free. You could even eat them for breakfast! FOR BREAKFAST!  That’s how tasty and guilt-free they are for you.

After my last blog post about giving up sugar (ha!) I needed to make a realistic batch of something naturally sweet and good for me. This recipe is seriously just two main ingredients. Technically they can be three or four ingredient cookies because you can add in yummy mix-ins. I made mine four ingredient cookies by adding a dash of cinnamon and a small handful of mini chocolate chips to the “dough”. Here’s the simple and delicious recipe for these Two Ingredient Cookies + Mix-Ins of Your Choice:


2 large ripe bananas (the riper the better)

1 cup quick oats

*Optional Mix-Ins: chocolate chips, dried cranberries, raisins, cinnamon, pecans, walnuts, etc.

Two Ingredient Cookies - Pocketful of Sugar


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mash the two ripe bananas in a bowl with a fork and mix in the quick oats. Add in whatever mix-ins you prefer. Don’t add too many mix-ins as the “dough” won’t hold together very well. One or two mix-ins work just great.

2. Onto a greased baking sheet (make sure its greased! You don’t want to be scrubbing your pan for three days) place dollops of the “dough” on the baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes.

[Yields about a dozen cookies, depending on banana size]

Now this is the type of thing I can guiltlessly eat half a batch of. In six whole cookies, that’s only one banana and 1/2 cup of oats with a few chocolate chips. For six cookies?! I’ll take it.

  1. This sounds awesome! I live with a gluten free lifestyle, so I would definitely use gluten free oats. I love how you can pretty much dress them any way that you want with the add ins. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Fantastic idea! I would have never thought with just the oatmeal and bananas it would hold together. I’ll definitely be trying this recipe. Thank you for stopping by my blog yesterday! ~ April 🙂
