3 Ingredient Banana Bread Cookies

Anyone else play the game "do my most ill-fitting jeans still fit" and lose?

Just me?

Well, if you still need some comfort food whilst reigning things in a bit, these can do the trick.  There are only 3 basic ingredients needed but you can add a few others for extra flavor.

2 medium overripe bananas
1 1/4- 1 1/2 quick cook oats
1/3 - 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Optional Extras
1/8 tsp salt
Dash complimentary spice like cardamom, allspice, cinnamon, or nutmeg

Preheat the oven to 350F/177C.

In a bowl, mash two medium overripe bananas, add 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 cups of quick rolled oats (steel cut will not work for this), and stir until combined.  Add 1/3-1/2 cup chocolate chips.  (I used Ghirardelli 60% but regular Nestle bittersweet taste really good too) and stir.

Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray or use a silicone baking sheet and make 6 cookies and mash down slightly with your hand or fork as cookies will not spread much as they bake.

Bake for 13-15 minutes or until cookies are set up.  Allow to cool for 5 minutes on the tray. 

Never feel guilty about having a few cookies during this time for breakfast again.  😉
