Easiest Cookies Ever!

I know I know, there are a lot of very easy cookie recipes. I guarantee this is the easiest one out there!! All you need is two ingredients. And guess what?!? You don't even need an oven! A microwave will do just fine :) I told you...EASY!

Quick oats and a super ripe banana is all you will need. 
Simply take 1 cup oats and mix it together with your banana. Mash it up good! Hands work best for the part.
Your dough is ready to bake at this point! You can also get creative with add ins here. I chose cinnamon and raisins. 
Ok, up to four ingredients, but still! EASY! You could also add chocolate chips, crushed nuts, pumpkin pie spice, blueberries, cranberries, sweetener,  vanilla, a little peanut butter...use your imagination. Just be careful not to add too much or your cookies will fall apart. 

Form into balls and squish them down a bit. I got 7 little cookies. 
Put parchment paper down on a microwave safe plate. It would probably work without parchment but I haven't tried it. Now for the "baking". Microwave for about one minute. Watch them closely! Depending on add ins they might need a little more or less time. I did 1:20. 
And done!! Super easy and healthy cookie! Great for a breakfast on the go. They are so chewy and moist!
And yes, I ate them all! Only about 400 calories for the basic cookies. A little more depending on what else you add. 
Leaning tower of breakfast cookies!! So that's it!! Easiest cookie recipe ever :)

What's your favorite breakfast on the go??


  1. Yummm! These sound delicious, and SOOOO simple to make! I'm totally going to have to try these soon! So many possibilities!

    1. I know right?! I can't wait to experiment more with them :)

  2. can i use applesauce instead? bananas are kinda carb dense. I will try them tonight because they look so good!

    1. I am pretty sure applesauce would work! I have used canned pumpkin before too and that works great! Pumpkin is lowest in carbs. Banana has 29, applesauce has 26, and pumpkin only has 22 :)

  3. How much pumpkin would you sub for the banana?

    1. 1 cup works great! I actually like them best with pumpkin. Add some white chocolate chips if you're feelin crazy :)

  4. I just made these (with extra cinnamon) and they are delicious! And so simple! But, the whole batch without raisins is not 240 calories, it's 400 calories, 11g Protein/ 80g carbs / 5g fat

    1. Awesome! Love cinnamon! Woah, good catch! Fixing that typo now! Thank you!!!
