Ingredients

Nonstick cooking spray
1/2
cup mashed banana (about 1 large)
1/2
cup chunky natural peanut butter (unsalted and unsweetened)
1/2
cup honey
1
teaspoon vanilla
1
cup rolled oats
1/2
cup Gold Medal™ whole wheat flour
1/4
cup nonfat dry milk powder
2
teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4
teaspoon baking soda
1
cup dried cranberries or raisins

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly coat two cookie sheets with cooking spray; set aside. In a large bowl, stir together banana, peanut butter, honey, and vanilla. In a small bowl, combine oats, flour, milk powder, cinnamon, and baking soda. Stir the oat mixture into the banana mixture until combined. Stir in dried cranberries.
  • 2 Using a ¼-cup measure, drop mounds of dough 3 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. With a thin metal or small plastic spatula dipped in water, flatten and spread each mound of dough to a 2¾-inch round, about ½ inch thick.
  • 3 Bake, one sheet at a time, for 14 to 16 minutes or until browned. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 2 months; thaw before serving.
