2 Ingredient Cookies

Here is another post for you busy stock trading moms especially those with young children. I’ve been making these since my baby could eat and he loves them. They look like cookies but they’re way healthier. With just 2 ingredients they couldn’t be any easier and who doesn’t have overly ripe bananas sitting around now and then? When I do I just whip up a quick batch of these gems and throw them in the freezer.


  • 1 Banana
  • ¾ Cup Oats

Oven Temp 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes

GREASED (learned that one the hard way) cookie sheet.

That’s it. Seriously.

Just mush up the banana and grind up the oats a little (if they are instant oats you can skip the grinding part). I throw my oats into my baby bullet to grind them up a bit but you could use a food processor or blender too. It’s okay if there are still some big oats. Then I just mix them together and if I want I add a few mix-ins. Some possibilities include, raisins, walnuts, cinnamon, shredded coconut, almonds, chocolate or cinnamon or butterscotch chips, vanilla, almond flavoring or anything else your little heart desires.

So many possibilities but this time I decided to add almonds and shredded coconut.

Here they are about to go into the oven after a quick little fork smoosh (everyone knows what a smoosh is right?)

They taste best right out of the oven but can keep a couple of days on the counter. I throw most of mine in the freezer and take them out when I need them. Especially when we’re on the run to the park, doing errands or on the way to a play group and I know I’ll need a quick snack for the little guy. A few seconds in the microwave thaws it out in a hurry or just about 15 minutes at room temp does the trick too.

And I’ll let you in on a little secret…adults kinda like them too. Especially when considering how healthy they are compared to a typical cookie. Great for a quick breakfast on the run too.

You can see here they passed the taste test.

Quick Easy Recipes for the Stock Trading Mom

Let’s face it, some days are just plain hectic for any mom but when you add the stock market in there it can get down right crazy.  Maybe the market looks like it’s about to bounce and several stocks may be approaching great buy points plus the baby is teething and won’t take his nap.  Then to top it off my husband might text and ask me if it wouldn’t be any trouble to bring some lunch out to the field.  Of course not.  I’ll be there in 30 minutes.  It’s on days like this I can use one of my ‘go to’ quick recipes to quickly feed my family and get back to focusing on the markets as soon as possible.

The Quick Breakfast- Breakfast Quiches To Go
These little make ahead crescent roll quiches come in so handy.  The easy recipe makes 16 mini quiches that freeze great and can be thrown right into the microwave for about a minute.  These are a MUST to have on hand for those mornings when the market demands all your attention.  Can be used for any meal or snack really.

The Quick Lunch- Mexican Tortilla Pizzas
I made up this little ‘go to’ recipe years ago.  I just take a tortilla (whole wheat or white) whatever you have on hand and slather refried beans over the entire tortilla.  Then I top with any kind of shredded cheese and put it in a 375 degree oven until hot and cheese is melted.  It’s that easy!  Feel free to throw some diced tomatoes or green peppers on top if you have them around and serve with sour cream and salsa if desired.

The Quick Supper- The Whole Bird
This recipe couldn’t be any easier.  Take any giblets out of your chicken.  Cut a large onion up into chunks and put it on the bottom of your crock-pot.  Season your chicken any way you’d like or use the seasoning recipe below.  Put the seasoned bird on top of the onions.  Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 8.  No need to add any water.  This chicken comes out so moist and perfect.  Just falling off the bone.  To make it a whole meal add some potato chunks and green beans to the bottom of the crock-pot with the onion.
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon each salt, garlic powder and thyme
½ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon each cayenne pepper and black pepper


How ’bout you?  Please share any quick easy recipes that are your favorites.  Heavens knows I could use them! 🙂
