Banana & Oat 'Cookies' [Matt]

2 - 3 Ripe Bananas
1~ Cup Oats

Optional (Pick a couple):
Dark Chocolate
Peanut Butter
Fresh Berries
Diced Apple
Chopped Nuts

These are the EASIEST 'cookies' to make in the world - easier than standard oatmeal chocolate chip cookies because there is no butter, egg, sugar or flour used. This also makes them a bit more 'guilt-free' pending what else you decide to throw into them.

First, take ripe bananas, mash them, add your favorite spices (I go with apple pie spice, ginger, vanilla extract), sprinkle of salt - then add in oats until you thicken up the 'batter' to match that of normal oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. The general ratio is 1 cup oats per 2 bananas, pending the size of your fruit (sup ladies).

Dump the mixture onto a baking sheet that has been lightly coated with cooking oil. Chop up your favorite chocolate (I use bakers 55% so it'll melt upon touch) and bake at 400f for 20 - 30 minutes depending how thick you spread your cookies. The 'cookies' are done once the oats begin to brown.
