3-Ingredient Banana Oat Thumbprint Cookies

3-Inredient Banana Oat Thumbprint Cookies – The easiest, quickest, healthiest thumbprint cookies ever! No fat, no sugar added – real brain food :). I use to make (and eat) these whenever I am not allowed to eat sugar and/or fat for health purposes. They are a particularly helpful source of energy during exam preparations and things like that, as they really help with staying concentrated and motivated.

Note that this recipe is very versatile: You can fill your banana-oat cookies with any jam you like or even with some chocolate or nut spread. But there is actually no need to fill them at all: just spoon the banana-oat-mixture onto the baking sheet and your cookies will come out delicious with or without a filling. You can also add chopped nuts, seeds, dried fruit, protein powder and/or chocolate to the mix – whatever you like. Ideas are welcome here.

Did you know: Bananas and oats (Avena sativa) may reduce the asthma risk in children, stabilize the blood sugar, reduce the risk of diabetes type 2, remove bad cholesterol, protect against heart disease and cancer, and improve immune system defenses. They further contain the amino acid tryptophan, which is a natural mood-enhancer and reduces stress levels.
