Chocolate Chip Walnut Banana Cookies (2-ingredient)

Easy 2 ingredient cookies (unless you add nuts and chocolate chips) that couldn’t be faster to make! All you need is quick-cooking oats and an over-ripe banana!

easy banana cookies with only 2 ingredients (we added chocolate chips and walnuts)

Let me first clarify that these ARE 2 ingredient cookies. Until I add the walnut and chocolate chips, and then they are 4 ingredient cookies.

Frankly, I think walnuts and chocolate chips are necessary when paired with anything banana. But hey, maybe that’s not your thing and you just want simple banana cookies. Than you need only two things…

  1. Over-ripe bananas.
  2. Quick oats.

Not joking with you here, it really is that simple!

These banana cookies are warm and cozy, sweet and savory and the PERFECT easy cookie for after school.

If you haven’t added these cookies to your recipe file, please let this be the day. You can make up several dozen of these in absolutely zero time.

In fact, we had these cookies made, the photo’s done, AND the video shot in less time than it takes to watch an episode of This is Us. Which, by the way, I have YET to watch a single episode. And from what I hear, I better keep it that way if I don’t want to have to watch them all in one sitting.

These cookies are for busy mom’s looking for a quick, homemade treat for their family that is healthy, sweet, and easy.
