The Two-Ingredient* Cookie, a Total Pin-Win!

There's been a photo floating around Pinterest boasting a two ingredient (plus mix-ins) cookie.

That pin. That one up there. See how pretty it looks? See how freakin easy it looks??? It honestly was that easy.

I thought of this pin when I was at the grocery store, miserable because I couldn't find shredded coconut. So I went back to the hot cereal aisle, grabbed some quick-cook oats since I'm a rolled oats girl and didn't have any of the flaky kind at home and I was in business.

I won't bore you with photos of my cooking process as the ones in the pin and on the original blog are so much better, but I will show you my finished product!

So.. Darn.. Good.. I may have eaten 6.

I chose to mix in Guittard Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (my fave!) and some diced prunes. These cookies were SO YUMMY and I will definitely make them again!

2 Ingredient* Cookies [original here: The Burlap Bag] (15 cookies, ~20 min)

In a large bowl, mash together bananas and oats
Stir in mix-ins
