Oatmeal Banana Bites

iJules Oatmeal Banana Bites

These little healthy scrumptious bites are the easiest way to use up the last banana that everyone left for someone else.  It was inspired from a recipe that I had pinned on Pinterest called 2 Ingredient Cookies by Recipe By Photo.  I had over 2000 re-pins so I thought I better try them so I could answer the questions they were asking me, like it was “MY” recipe! I just pinned it for God’s sake!  Of course I had to add more than 2 ingredients because I always am craving something at the moment and have never followed a recipe in my life. I didn’t make a tutorial because they are just too easy to make.

Ingredients: 

  • 1 Banana {overly ripe is good}
  • 1/2 Cup Oatmeal {Bobs Red Mill Extra Thick} is my favorite
  • 1 tsp. Pure Vanilla
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut flaked {mine was sweetened}
  • 1 Tbs. Ground Flax Seed

Method to the Madness:

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mash banana in a small bowl, add all other ingredients and drop by heaping teaspoon onto a baking mat or parchment paper.  Bake 15 minutes until golden brown. This recipe made about 10 bites.  Store in a airtight container.  Recipe could be doubled by using 2 bananas etc. I wouldn’t recommend more than that.  I may use some cacao nibs next time just for the real cookie effect.  I’m sure you could make these in a dehydrator to keep them raw as well, maybe a high temp for 12 hours or so.

Bon Appetit
