Quick & easy oat cookies – just 2 ingredients

This healthy recipe for easy oat cookies is one of my favourite biscuit recipes. I’m using the Australian definition of biscuit here, by the way. I believe you folks in the U.S. would just say cookies.

 Anyway, these cookies can be whipped up in no time with just two main ingredients: banana and oats.

They’re really versatile, because you just add whatever else you have on hand or feel like at the time. Nuts, seeds, dried fruit, coconut or even fresh berries are perfect.

Are these easy oat cookies healthy?

I like to say that they’re a healthier alternative to traditional biscuits and cookies. They don’t have any refined flours, white sugar, or oil in them.

I love making these oat cookies for an afternoon snack. They’re so quick to make, and they can be baking while you brew a pot of tea – rooibos or green, of course!

Then you’ve got fresh baked, still warm from the oven cookies with a refreshing afternoon cuppa.

I like to add chopped fresh strawberries to mine.

If you’re giving them to the kids for an after school snack, throw in some nuts and choc chips.
