Just last week, I stumbled upon a blog post by The Burlap Bag that boasted a recipe for 2 ingredient cookies…that were healthy and delicious.
AND I WAS SKEPTICAL.
I like to cook, but baking is really not my forte. With that said, sweets sure are. And given that I’m always watching what I eat, the idea of a healthy and tasty treat really intrigued me.
So I decided to give this recipe a try…all the while doubting that the cookies would be all that good.
1 cup of quick oats and two smooshy bananas (plus craisins) and I was in business.
I preheated the oven to 350, threw the first two ingredients in a bowl…
AND SURPRISINGLY, THEY WERE GOOD!
The banana flavor is obvious and the oats give a really dense and chewy consistency. For me, the craisins provided a pop of flavor…but I’m certain I would have enjoyed them just as much with chocolate chips. : )
I’ll definitely be stopping by The Burlap Bag blog again sometime soon, but I won’t be doubting their recipes. These healthy little cookies were enjoyed by me on Saturday night and again by my sis and her BF on Sunday. I was surprised by the good flavor and by how easy it was to whip these up. Sometimes, you’ve just got to try something new and let your tastebuds impress you!
Linking up with Tasty Tuesday, because these healthy trips really were quite tasty!
