Number of Servings: 20

Ingredients

    Dry ingredients
    1 cup whole wheat flour (a pinch more depending on the moisture of the mix)
    1 1/2 cups of Large Flake Rolled Oats (smaller flake is ok too)
    1/2 c brown sugar
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 Tbsp Cinnamon (I actually use about 3 Tbsp--got to love cinnamon)
    1/2 tsp Nutmeg (optional)
    Wet ingredients
    1 banana, mashed
    1 Tablespoon Molasses
    1 egg (beat with 1 Tbsp Water)
    1 tsp Vanilla
    1/2 cup raisins
    1/2 cup walnuts

Directions

Preparation:
In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together.
In a medium bowl, mix all the wet ingredients together.
Mix the wet stuff with the dry stuff. Add the raisins and walnuts and mix. If the mixture seems too wet, add a bit of flour. If it isn't binding together very well, you may wish to add an egg white.

Preheat the oven to 335 degrees (lower temperature due to the honey in the recipe which will burn more easily).
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto your baking sheet (I recommend lining the baking sheet with parchment paper). Press down with a fork to ensure even cooking.
Bake for about 15 - 20 minutes or until golden on the bottom of the cookie. The cookies freeze very well and make a great snack! Enjoy.

Feel free to add a bit more sugar or honey, as these cookies aren't too sweet, or add more raisins. To make them vegan, they also come out fine without egg.
