The ideal three ingredient quarantine cookie recipe


Alyssa Deplaris

In only 22 minutes, I made three ingredient cookies that have immaculate flavor; especially fresh out of the oven.

Throughout quarantine, I have been determined to bake quick, easy and healthier cookies. Baking has never been my strong suit because I lose my patience and never follow the recipe word for word. However, I discovered the easiest three ingredient oatmeal cookie that excludes loads of sugar and hours of baking.

This recipe makes the ideal quarantine cookie because many people have the needed ingredients in their kitchen, which avoids visiting the hectic grocery stores. They are significantly healthier than your traditional chocolate chip cookie but will not fail to satisfy sweet cravings. If you are an impatient baker looking for a treat, this three-ingredient oatmeal cookie recipe is for you; there’s pretty much no way to mess this one up.

Three Ingredient Oatmeal Cookies

Prep time: 10 minutes

Baking time: 7-8 minutes

Total time: 22 minutes


2 ripe bananas

1 1/4 cups rolled oats

1/4 cup chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 400 Fahrenheit.

2. In a medium bowl mash the bananas. If you want your cookies to have zero chunks, mash until the bananas reach a smooth consistency.

3. Stir in the rolled oats into the banana mixture.

4. Add the chocolate chips to the bananas and oats, stirring the mixture to distribute the chocolate.

5. Form the cookies into 1” balls, placing them about 1-2 inches apart on the baking sheet.
