2 INGREDIENT COOKIES ~ for Blood Type Os
Yes. For real. Two ingredients. (Yes, you can add other things if you want… but you don’t HAVE to!) I made this up after seeing a “healthy breakfast cookie” that wanted me to add eggs, applesauce, baking soda, etc and I said NO!
And also, I hate those “two/three ingredient” recipes where one of the ingredients is a boxed cookie mix. and the other is a can of pie filling. CMON PEOPLE.
2 large old bananas OR 1 cup applesauce
1 cup of quick oats
Mix those two together. Old bananas are amazing for this, but you can use fresh ones too. I buy a bunch of bananas, let them get old on my counter, and then stick ‘em all in the freezer.
Then add in what sounds yummy to you! (or nothing!) We love:
-a handful of dark chocolate chips, toffee chips
-crushed walnut pieces
-raisins, craisins, dried pineapple, dried cranberries, chopped fresh apple
Since all bananas are different sizes, the needed measurements can vary. If it seems too runny and the cookies would flatten out too much, add in more oatmeal. And make sure to not add in TOO many mix-ins as the cookies won’t hold together very well. The ones in these photos have a handful of chocolate chips, a teaspoon or two or cinnamon, and 1/4ish a cup of crushed walnuts.
We made 16 cookies with those measurements. We cook them at 350 degrees for 15 minutes on a GREASED cookie sheet. Don’t forget the greased part…. I did once and had to scrub my pan forever.
Calories: 2 bananas= 210 calories, 1 cup oats uncooked= 330 calories, 540 total in 16 cookies= 33ish calories per cookie… plus any mix-ins.
If the baked cookies are too soft, just bake a little longer. Next time smash the batter down to make it a thinner cookie.
Make frozen banana “ice cream” which consists of a blended frozen banana and these cookies.
