2-Ingredient Desserts That Are Simple and Delicious (and Easy on the Budget)

2 Ingredient Desserts

If you are anything like me, then you know how challenging it is to come up with creative cheap dinners every night, let alone adding a dessert to the dinner menu.

The good news is that there are lots of quick simple desserts you can make, even when the pantry is a little on the bare side and you find yourself wondering what to bake with limited ingredients.

Do a search for two ingredient cake recipes, and you will find all kinds of ideas, like this Flourless Nutella Cake from Kirbie's Cravings. You really need just two things to make this cake, Nutella and eggs. That's it! Forget about flour, sugar and baking soda.

Two Peas and Their Pod has an amazing Homemade Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream you can easily whip up. If you have bananas and peanut butter, you have ice cream! Unbelievable, right?  Seriously, you must try this recipe.

Make sure to save some of those bananas though. You will need them, along with a cup of oats (quick or regular, either type works) to make these 2-ingredient Oatmeal Cookies. Get the recipe at The Burlap Bag. Then please come back and let me know what you think!!

These easy 2 Ingredient Lemon Bars are so good, and so simple to make! I love having one or two  with a cup of coffee in the morning. (don't judge me, my sweet tooth makes me do it.)

These bars are my absolute favorite and not just because they taste so darn good. This dessert is easy on the old food budget. All you need is a package of angel food cake mix (the kind that just needs water) and lemon pie filling (22 oz. can.) And if you like, some powdered sugar to sprinkle on top. (don't worry, they taste wonderful without the sugar too!)

Two ingredient desserts are perfect for those crazy hectic days when you simply do not have energy left to make a multi-step dessert, but really want to treat everyone to a delicious sweet treat!
