I saw some two ingredient cookies on Instagram, then on Tumblr. I didn’t see THESE two ingredient cookies, let’s be clear, I saw banana plus oatmeal cookies. That version, which inspired my banana coconut cookies, is pretty common in vegan circles but I thought when I saw them that coconut would work just as well. I was right!
Here I present: Yes. Truly. Two ingredients (of course, you can add other things if you want… but it’s not necessary)!
These are the perfect thing when you want something like a breakfast cookie, but not the complication of specialty flour, eggs, baking soda, etc. Plus these Banana Coconut Cookies have the fact that banana + coconut is just an A+ flavor combination going for them. Really, Mother Nature is doing all of the work here. Just throw the two ingredients together and let the magic of the oven do its work.
Also let the record state: I hate those “two/three ingredient” recipes where one of the ingredients is boxed cake mix, and the other is a can of pie filling. Both gross and cheating, is what those are! And unnecessary, when something as delicious as these banana coconut cookies can be made from two simple, real food ingredients. 🙂
- 1 banana
- ¾ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- Preheat the oven to 350° F. Grease a cookie sheet, set aside.
- Pulse the two ingredients for a few moments in a food processor until very well combined.
- Shape into discs, then set on the greased cookie sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or until golden.
