    mixing together ingredients for healthy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

    Only 3 ingredients!

    Banana: Ripe bananas are sweeter, which is important since this recipe doesn’t use any sugar. So make sure your banana is ripe enough!

    Oats: This recipe calls for quick oats, which have a finer consistency than old fashioned oats. They also cook a little faster.

    Cinnamon: I love to add cinnamon for extra flavor. You don’t need a lot, only about 1/8 teaspoon. You can always add more if you want!
