IMG_0088

The title says it all. We always have leftover bananas so instead of making bread or muffins, I tried cookies. These are a healthy, easy snack for all ages. Perfect! You can also add whatever else you want, like cinnamon, chocolate chips, nuts, etc. But here’s what you need…

Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
1 1/2 cups quick oats
3 ripe bananas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. In a medium bowl, mix together oatmeal and bananas until combined. Add whatever else you would like. I added cinnamon to my second batch and they were much better. Drop by spoonfulls onto prepared cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!

 

Super Easy Banana Muffins

I know I’ve made banana muffins before, but this recipe is so easy, hardly any ingedients and you will have all of them on hand. Husband is watching football (Go Bears!), child is sleeping, there’s a load of laundry going… what’s a lady to do? Bake of course! I need to make a baking supply run so I did not have much. I had exactly 2 very ripe bananas so muffins are what came to mind. Here is how to make these guys…

What you will need:

Muffin tin sprayed with non-stick spray

For the batter:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
Dash of salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 ripe bananas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl peel bananas and smush with a fork. In another larger bowl, mix together bananas, eggs and oil. Pour into dry ingredients and mix well. Evenly divide batter into prepared muffin tin and bake for 20 minutes. Let cool on wire rack and enjoy!
