Are you craving something sweet after a hard training day? Feeling strapped for time? Or are you just in the mood to try something simple and new?
Makes about 14 cookies
For the Cookie:
11/2 cup quick oats or Old Fashioned Oats
1 cup mashed banana (about 2 bananas)
Suggestions for add-ins:
1 tsp. of cinnamon, ginger, and/or nutmeg
½ cup dark chocolate chips
⅓ cup dried cranberry, raisin, or cherry
⅓ cup shredded coconut
⅓ cup crushed walnut, almond, or pecan
(We like walnut & chocolate chips)
Mix all ingredients together. If you used a lot of add-ins, you may need one more banana to keep it moist.
Place parchment paper down on cookie sheet.
Form the cookies and place them on the sheet. It doesn’t matter how close together they are – they will not expand!
Bake at 350° for 12 to 15 minutes.
Let cool for 5 minutes, and enjoy!
