The 2 Ingredient Cookie Taste Test

2 Ingredient Cookie TestYesterday, we posted an article about the 2 Ingredient Cookie recipe from The Burlap Bag. The two ingredients are bananas and oats and the recipe is so close to foolproof, I had to make some and test them out on three cookie experts. So I made a batch and in an effort to suck-up to the judges, mixed-in some chocolate chips. Here are the results:

  1. Kid A: Too chewy. I can’t eat the whole thing.
  2. Kid B: It’s not bad. I could eat more but just not now.
  3. Kid C: Don’t like bananas. Not going to try it. (my l’il commie)

Personally, I loved the 2 Ingredient Cookies and I could even do without the chocolate chips. It’s a great, “on-the-go” and healthy snack you can stuff in your pocket as you’re leaving the house. Skip the Snickers/Granola/PowerBar and give the 2 Ingredient Cookies a shot. I may try this recipe with applesauce next time and see how it goes. You’ll be the first to hear about my success or failure.
