Easy Two Ingredient Oat Bundle Cookies

Sunday was a whirlwind day of moving. We left early in the morning with a car and a cargo van packed to the brim with the belongings of three university students, and spent just about the whole day lugging boxes, mini-fridges, and various other belongings into my brothers’ new university dorms.

When my brothers finally felt settled, I left them to move into my own apartment. Thankfully my move was much less work, since I lived in the same place last year. Regardless, it still felt like it took hours and soon after I was done, I fell fast asleep.

This is my fourth year of living away from home for the school year, and I’ll admit that I still feel pangs of homesickness for the first few days. I try keep busy and think about other things, but we all know the best remedy when feeling a bit down:

Homemade cookies! Tuesdays this month will feature easy, healthy vegan treats that will satisfy your taste buds when you need a hit of sweetness. Today’s recipe uses two basic ingredients that you most likely already have in your kitchen, and only takes 30 minutes from start-to-finish (including clean-up)!

These may be the easiest cookies you will ever make (aside from cookie dough from a tube). Simply mash, measure, stir, shape, and place in the oven. Another thing I love about this recipe is that you can make them to suit whatever your taste buds are craving. This particular batch included dried blueberries and carob nibs. Feel free to play around with mix-ins and leave a comment with your favourite combination!

Treat Yourself Tuesday

Easy Two Ingredient Oat Bundles

Yield: 4-6 cookies

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 22 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 c. rolled oats
  • 1 large banana, mashed (approx. 1/2 c.)
  • optional: 1/4 c. desired mix-ins (eg. dried fruit, chocolate chips, coconut, nuts, seeds etc.)
  • optional: 1 tsp flavouring of choice (eg. vanilla, cocoa, spices, maca etc.)

Instruction

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, mash the banana until pureed.
  • Stir in oatmeal and optional mix-ins.
  • Shape small balls of dough on cookie sheet. Press dough into balls with hands well to avoid breakage.

Simple treats like these never fail to make me feel more at home. I hope they make you feel warm and fuzzy inside too :)

  1. I love oat and banana cookies! They are so easy yet smell and taste delicious

  2. Yay for homemade cookies and only two basic ingredients and 30-minute?! Yes! Honestly, a good American comfort food makes me feel more at home – vegan grilled cheese sandwich or cheezy mac n’ cheeze, or probably hot-&-sour noodle soup (hehe). I love snicker-doodles and dried cranberries in my cookies!

  3. I love your idea to have easy vegan recipes in under 30 mins! I love mixing oats with bananas to make cookies! I like adding in almonds and pistachios :)

  4. Wow, these cookies are so simple but yet so wonderful. Props, girl, props! I’m all for simplicity :)

  5. WOW!!!! I can’t believe just oats and bananas make cookies. This I have to try :)
