Healthy Cookies


I don't really know what to call these but they are cookie-like and healthy.  Well, the healthy part it up to you, depending on what you mix in.  This is the base.  I added dark chocolate chips to one batch and then to another coconut shavings and smashed pecans.  

Healthy Cookies

1 banana, mashed

1/2 cup quick oats

1 tablespoon natural peanut butter (or almond butter)

Add in's of your choice:  Dried cranberries, dried tropical fruits, raisins, chocolate chips, coconut, nuts, cinnamon, spices... 

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Mash banana.  Mix in oats, nut butter and anything else you've decided to throw in.  Form dough into small circles and flatten.  Arrange on a baking sheet lined with a silpat or lightly greased parchment paper.  (Cookies don't expand or flatten during baking so keep that in mind when shaping and spacing.)  Bake 15 minutes.  Remove and cool.
