I was inspired by this simple recipe for two ingredient cookies from The Burlap Bag http://www.theburlapbag.com/2012/07/2-ingredient-cookies-plus-the-mix-ins-of-your-choice/

These soft banana oatmeal bites are so versatile.

Other additions:

  • Nutella
  • Honey
  • Butterscotch
  • Dried fruit
  • Shredded coconut
  • 1/4tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1tsp brown sugar
  • Almond butter
  • Chopped nuts

You could divide up your mixture and make several different combinations in one batch.

They really are delicious, soft and chewy. You will have to resist the urge to polish them all off. They are so quick to make, I find myself making these again and again.

Keep smiling 🙂

    These look so yummy! So sad that I’m allergic to some of the ingredients or I would have been right up in there! 🙁 Will have to check out an adaptation of them!

    Yummy and healthy (great idea to add oats!) Also- no flour so that’s really cool.

    I can’t believe how easy this is! Bananas never get finished at my house, so we always end up with a lot of ripe bananas. My boyfriend is going to love this, be like banana-cinnamon-like things. I will also add a dash on vanilla extract.

    Oooo! I’m glad you came before me in the blog hop, I might have missed these otherwise. My youngest has special needs (including special diet) and these (minus chocolate) will make a perfect healthy treat… I’m thinking I can replace chocolate chips with raisons or blueberries.

    Thanks for sharing 🙂 #Weekendbloghop
