Alright, I admit it: This morning I woke up and realized I didn’t have a pin test planned and I really didn’t feel like going to the grocery store, so I went through my boards until I found something I could make with only the ingredients I had on hand.
Good thing I had a brown banana and an almost-empty thing of oatmeal or I wouldn’t have been able to make 2-ingredient cookies.
Normally, this would not constitute “food,” and I would be forced to make a Taco Bell trip for lunch. But if Pinterest says you can make food out of it, who am I to question?
Also, I didn’t have anything delicious to mix in. The chocolate chips and Rolos are long gone, compadres. (I was on my period. Shit happens.) But I did manage to dig a box of yogurt raisins out of my purse from when I took my nieces to the museum last week and needed emergency snacking supplies.
(The Auntie of the Year Award goes to me because I took them out for gelato instead of making them eat yogurt raisins.)
Does not in any way resemble cookie dough:
Still doesn’t, even mooshed and with yogurt raisins in it. (I don’t know why I thought that would help.)
I admit, here, to straying from the directions. Spraying the cookie sheet is an important step, guys. Don’t skip it. But I skipped it because I was using this awesome stoneware cookie sheet that I love and nothing ever sticks to the damn thing. It’s magical.
I was still not confident in how these would turn out, as they sort of looked like piles of cat puke.
They didn’t look all that much better when they came out of the oven.
Maybe slightly older piles of cat puke.
Also? They stuck to my fucking cookie sheet even though it’s magical and nothing ever sticks to it. Fine, cookies. You win. You will stick to anything.
I managed to pry them off the cookie sheet with only minimal damage, except for losing most of the yogurt raisins out of them.
And they tasted about like you’d expect: bananas, oatmeal, and yogurt raisins smooshed together and slightly dried out. Not like a cookie. More like bananas. And oatmeal.
I do admit to eating all of them because I was hungry and still too lazy to go to Taco Bell. And, on the plus side, eating all of the cookies only means that I ate a banana and half a cup of oatmeal, plus some stray yogurt raisins, so I don’t have to run a penitent mile or two later (ha, like I would anyway).
