Healthy Coconut Oatmeal Haystack Cookies

This week bananas are on super sale, so I am swimming in yellow deliciousness.  Since, I need to use up all the bananas I purchased, there’s no time like the present to make some recipes I’ve been meaning to make.  Today’s treat is not only delicious, but easy, quick, healthy, so simple to make even your kids could do it on their own.
Have you heard of the 2 ingredient cookies?  These cookies are just oats and bananas.  Talk about easy, right?  To keep these cookies fresh & exciting, each time I make them, I do something different.  This version, I added cinnamon and coconut.  Next time who knows, maybe lime zest and pomegranates.
These cookies never last long in our house.  And no that isn’t because I’ve got 5 kids.  Well, partly, but also because they are so good, you can’t eat just one.  Which is fine with me since I’ve got 3 bakers who can whip these up in the matter of minutes.

Have you made these cookies before?  If so what kind did you make?

  1. Hooray! Another way to use ripe bananas. I usually cut them into chunks and freeze them for smoothies, but we already have plenty of frozen, so I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the ripened bunch sitting on our counter. I’m going to make these cookies right now!

    • Bananas are great frozen for smoothies. You csn also take frozen bananas in a blender and it turns into banana ice cream. We love doing that in the summer mo the. How did the cookies come out?

  4. I tried these cookies today and added some dried blueberries. Very easy to make, very healthy-no sugar added and all healthy ingredients!! I ate them with some of the chocolate I made with raw cocoa powder, definitely a bit of chocolate to yum them up even more 🙂 Thanks!!

  11. oooooooh! Lime zest and pomegranate seeds! This looks like my favorite kind of recipe – one that’s more of a process that you can change up each time you do it for something new and amazing! Thank you so much for sharing with the Healthy Living Link Party! #HealthyLivingLinkParty

    • Me too. I love recipes that change depending upon a few ingredients. I can’t wait to do lime zest & pomegranate seeds, since it kinda just came to me while I was doing these. Thanks for visiting and commenting. 🙂
