3-Ingredient Cookie Haiku: "Odd but good 'cookie', want to swap chocolate chips, but for what, dunno." I had a squishy brown banana on the counter, a near-empty bag of mini chocolate chips, and quick cooking oats, so blammo, this recipe was easy for my young daughters to throw together. If it wasn't for the chocolate, I would make these a breakfast treat. I wish the recipe submitter mentioned in the notes how well and long they keep - wrapped, covered, refrigerated? For now, we just ate them all. A bit smooshy, but tasty nonetheless. Read More

I had my first thru second grade club students make these cookies because they were so simple. The kids loved it. We found that this recipe size made just a few cookies which was perfect for our group size and timing. Personally I found the cookies to be a bit bland. A dash of salt, vanilla and cinnamon will likely give these cookies the flavor boost they need. I will make these again in club, but not likely at home. Read More

I decided to try this because it only had three ingredients but couldn't resist adding a few things I had in the cupboard. I added slices almonds protein powder peanut butter and dried cranberries. just a tablespoon or two of each. I also added an egg and a bit more oatmeal based on other reviews. So I didn't try the original recipe but I really liked it with the way I made it. Read More

This was pretty yummy. I added more oatmeal (another quarter cup) and an egg which definitely solved the consistency complaints someone else mentioned. Instead of chocolate chips I mixed in a little butterscotch almonds and dried cranberries. My bananas were very overripe which I think is the secret to adding no additional sugar. These were so sweet. I probably don't need the butterscotch though it went great. Without the candy this would be so healthy. VERDICT: Would bake again. Read More

Instead of chocolate chips I used dried coconut and they turned out quite good! They are super easy to make and I will probably make them again! Though they did take a while to bake. And when they came out they looked kinda rubbery but I took one bite and loved 'em! Read More

A completely easy and healthy tidbit. It s not exactly my idea of a cookie but it definitely works as a little sweet snack. I added a few tbs of chopped walnuts a little salt vanilla and cinnamon plus a bit more oatmeal then a sprinkling of flour because it was still too wet. Read More
