All-Natural Oatmeal Banana Cookies made without refined sugar
Ingredients
  • 1/3 c. butter (I used salted)
  • 3 ripe bananas, pureed in blender or well mashed
  • 2 c. uncooked quick-cooking oats – important to use quick cooking. Old Fashioned probably tastes too “oat-y”
  • 1/4 c. skim milk – I omitted this completely because my batter was plenty moist
  • 1/2 c. raisins – or Craisins or chocolate chips
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt butter or margarine in a microwave-safe mixing bowl.
  3. Add all remaining ingredients, but watch the milk because you may not need all of it.
  4. Let stand for about 5 minutes, until oats are wet.
  5. Lightly grease a cookie sheet or line with nonstick foil.
  6. For each cookie, spoon out about 1 T. of dough and drop it onto the greased cookie sheet.
  7. Bake the cookies for 15 to 20 minutes.
  8. Let cool on the cookie sheet for about 1 minute.
  9. Move the cookies to wire racks or a towel to cool.
