Elevated simplicity – Bite Sized Oatmeal “Cookies”


Sometimes in the morning, my standard bowl of oatmeal just doesn’t seem creative enough.  When I first heard of the magical 2-ingredient cookies I knew that it would be a fabulous base to transform my morning bowl of oatmeal into something even more spectacular.


The idea is simply mixing oatmeal and a banana together and baking them into “cookies”.  (Fair warning: these are not really cookies, so I try not to think of them like that – no cookie should lack it’s necessary butter and sugar, that’s my golden rule)  I don’t stop with the oatmeal and banana in this fun recipe, to make my little oatmeal bites I add in what I would to my usual bowl of oats!  For this example I added cinnamon and raspberry.  You could also add cocoa powder, chocolate chips, raisins (yuck), coconut, nuts, seeds – the combinations are endless!  The greatest part about this breakfast is that it feels like you’re eating a plate of cookies for breakfast, but you’re getting all of the amazing nutrients of a regular bowl of oatmeal!  I like to eat them accompanied with a glass of almond milk for added nutritional value to round out this cute, simple, and fun breakfast!


The Ingredients:
1 banana
1/2 cup oats
Desired mix-ins! (cinnamon berries, nuts, chocolate chips, coconut, nut butters, etc.)

The Method:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Mush a banana into a bowl and mix in oats until thoroughly combined
3. Fold in any desired mix ins
4. Drop 6 circles of the “dough” onto a greased baking sheet
5. Bake for 14 minutes
6. Enjoy!
