These cookies require only THREE ingredients and are done in 15 minutes! Kids and adults love them and they are ridiculously easy to make. Great use for ripe bananas!


I'm thinking it would be convenient to have a swear-word version of Lorem Ipsum to insert here. Who @#&^% *%#@ knew that creating a new website could cause so many problems? I am slowly fixing the print buttons. I apologize for sending out random (old) newsletter posts to my subscribers (what the heck?!). My to-fix list is large and overwhelming, but I'll get there. Thank you for being here AND for being patient with the glitches.


A few weeks ago I found my countertop, once again, laden with geriatric bananas. If I did not have a food blog, I'd make the same delish banana bread and muffins over and over. Or maybe these Banana Bars, which is one of my favorite desserts of ALL-TIME. Since I do have a food blog, I always feel the need to come up with something new. On that particular day I needed simple and quick and this recipe could not have fit the bill any better. I was shocked at how delicious these cookies were! Three (or four, if you want to add chocolate) ingredients, 20 minutes and a yummy, healthy cookie was in my hungry, busy fingers.


I can't decide between watching American Horror Story and fixing website glitches tonight. Ok ok, I'll do both. Have a great week, friends!
