I love bananas, I love oats, and I love peanut butter. So does Jane’s 13 year-old daughter, Crile, who ate seven of these in one sitting. Teenage approval. That says a lot about how good these cookies are.

Ingredients

3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 tablespoon vanilla
¾ cup natural chunky peanut butter
3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 cups old fashioned oats
½ cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt (optional)
½ cup non-dairy chocolate chips or raisins

*to make gluten free eliminate whole wheat flour

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper

Mix bananas, vanilla, peanut butter and maple syrup into a creamy consistency in a large bowl

In another bowl, combine oats, flour, baking powder and salt

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until they are well combined -the batter should be slightly sticky

Fold in the chocolate chips or raisins

Place rounded, heaping tablespoon-sized balls of the batter onto an ungreased baking sheet

Bake for 15-18 minutes

Gobble these up while they are still warm
