We've talked about my competing love for dessert and lack of ambition to make it. Which I consider a good thing, because you'd have to roll me out of my house if I liked to make sweets as much as I enjoy cooking savory foods. But when something only takes a few minutes and three ingredients, I can totally be talked into it. These cookies are fluffy and light with just a hint of delicious banana flavor. Fair warning though, you're going to have to give them away quickly, or lock them in a high cabinet because they are so addicting!
I made these banana cookies with the kids and picked up some cute greeting cards to go with them. I feel like the art of handwritten notes and card giving is waning, and that makes me sad. I don't know if we'll single-handedly revive it, but I'd like to be able to say I at least introduced my children to the concept.
3 Ingredient Banana Cookies, Ingredients:

3 Ingredient Banana Cookies, Directions:
- Combine ingredients in a bowl and whisk with an electric mixer on high until all ingredients are incorporated and batter is starting to get fluffy.
- Spoon batter onto parchment lined baking sheets (you should get about 30 medium/small sized cookies) and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 10 minutes.
- If icing, wait until cookies are cooled, then dip in icing then sprinkles.
We decided on banana cookies because I found this ridiculously cute Minions card at Walmart and everyone knows Minions love bananas! The card even came with a fun little Minions clip that I'm hoping my friend will put on her purse (or give to me).
Would it be terrible if I gifted the cookies and card to myself? "Hey, April! You're kicking butt at parenting this morning! Love, April" - Okay, maybe not, but I might sneak a cookie (or three) before bringing the rest to my Minions loving friend!
I also grabbed several birthday cards and "just because" cards from the Hallmark $.47 section. I've fallen out of the habit of leaving little love notes around for my husband, and this is just the motivation I needed to get it going again. I think I'll leave some under the kids' pillows too, I know they'd like that!
What type of greeting card would you like to send?
