We spent the month of March studying cooking and baking. This cookie recipe is another pinterest find. It’s perfect for getting young ones involved in the whole process. It’s insanely simple, cheap and rather yummy. All you need are TWO INGREDIENTS! (Though you can add yummy mix-ins)
All you need are two bananas (the more ripe, the better) and a cup of oats (quick or regular).
My son decided he wanted to add chopped organic gummy bears. What can I say, he’s brilliant! Loopy got to do so many steps with this recipe. Peeling the banana, measuring and pouring the oats (it doesn’t need to be exact, and mashing the bananas into the oats. Pretty much all there is to it.

Many thanks for the Italian bread recipeTrying it right now
Will let you know of my success
how many did this make? I’d love to do this as a baking lesson with my preschoolers but there are 16 of them. I’m thinking I’d have to at least double the recipe.
I’m not sure. I think a dozen. Good luck!
Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas of receipts with us
I was drawn the simplicity of this recipe & I had some bananas that needed to be used so I gave them a try. They were super easy & customizable. But I don’t think I could get my kiddos to buy-in on this being a cookie. The texture is “different”. I’m going to call them banana balls & see how they like them. Wish me luck…
