I used to DVR and watch The Rachael Ray Show every day my fifth year in college, but I’m sure I’ve ever really watched it since, until last week when I found myself fascinated by Sunny Anderson’s Two-Ingredient Recipes segment.
Of course, I’ve heard about peanut butter oatmeal no-bake cookies before, but when Sunny said, “Once you’ve got two ingredients…
Until I’d gone from two ingredients…
5-Ingredient ‘Elvis’ Oat Cookies
(Makes 2 dozen)
- 1 1/2 cups dry roasted, unsalted peanuts
- 1 1/2 cups sweetened dried banana chips
- 2 cups quick cooking oats
- 3 Tbsp. (soy) bacon bits
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a food processor, process peanuts and banana chips until nut butter forms.
- Add oats and bacon bits to the peanut banana ‘butter.’
- Process until well incorporated.
- Pulse in chocolate chips. (They will start to melt.)
- Roll and press dough into cookie shapes.*
- Bake 10-12 minutes.
*Dough is a bit easier to work with if it is cold, so you can put the mixture into the fridge at this point and wait to preheat the oven until ready to bake if desired.
If these aren’t Strange But Good approved, well I’ll be knocked out of my blue suede shoes.
