1 soft, mashed banana
3/4 cup rolled oats (not instant)
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
1/4 cup craisins, reconstituted in water, then drained
2 tablespoons unsalted almond, peanut or your favorite nut butter
Preheat oven to 350°
Mix all of the ingredients together in a medium-size bowl. Spoon by tablespoon onto a cookie sheet fitted with parchment paper. Flatten each mound slightly.
Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool on a rack.
Makes 9 – 12 cookies
Note: Chocolate chips may be substituted for the craisins. Nuts can be roasted whole, then chopped, for a more intense flavor. Great breakfast treat!
