In case you haven’t noticed by now, I like to keep my recipes simple. My most popular post is my recipe for Easy No-Bake Oatmeal Peanut Butter Balls, and a search for “easy” on this blog will pull up several other recipe posts. I am always interested when I come across easy recipes on the internet, but I also am skeptical and worry that my family won’t fall for the shortcuts. Recently I tried three ridiculously easy recipes with 3 ingredients or less, and they all passed the family taste test.
Oatmeal Banana Breakfast Cookies
The first recipe I tried I call Oatmeal Banana Breakfast Cookies. I’ve seen several variations of this recipe, but I love raisins in my oatmeal, so I put raisins in my oatmeal banana breakfast cookies.
~ 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
~ 1 cup old fashioned oats
~ 1/3 cup raisins
~ 1 tsp cinnamon
(oops! does that count as a 4th ingredient?)
Preheat oven to 350F; prepare baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Blend bananas, oatmeal and cinnamon; stir in raisins.
Form into cookie shapes on prepared baking sheet.
Bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes.
Pufferfish Roasted Cauliflower
The next recipe is what Carla (or Tornado?) calls Pufferfish.
~ 1 head cauliflower
~ olive oil
Preheat oven to 450F; prepare baking sheet lined with foil.
Lightly baste cauliflower with olive oil, sprinkle with salt.
Bake at 450F for about 45 minutes.
I have a good from-scratch recipe for pumpkin brownies, but this recipe on Family Fresh Meals convinced me to try it using brownie mix.
~ 1 package brownie mix (19 oz size)
~ 1 can pumpkin (15 oz)
Preheat oven to 350F; lightly coat glass baking dish with cooking spray.
Blend brownie mix and pumpkin until thoroughly mixed.
Pour batter into prepared baking dish.
Bake at 350F for 35-45 minutes.
These recipes couldn’t be easier, and they all turned out well enough to make again.
Do you have any ridiculously easy recipes?
What would you put in your breakfast cookies?
Raisins? Chocolate Chips? Nuts?
All of the above?
None of the above?
