Banana Nut Cookies, sugar and gluten free

Submitted by: MANDAHOP


Number of Servings: 20

Ingredients

    2 1/2 cups rolled oats
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 - 1 tsp. cinnamon
    1/4 c. walnut or vegetable or coconut oil
    3/4 c. chopped walnuts, pecans, or macadamia nuts
    2 1/4 c. sliced bananas, lightly packed
    Chocolate Chips (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Combine rolled oats, salt, and cinnamon. Add oil and toss to coat. Set aside.

Mash bananas with a fork or liquefy in a blender. Add nuts and bananas to the oat mixture and mix well. Add choc chips, if using.

Scoop out mounds of dough and place on foil covered baking sheets (the original reciper says ungreased, but i had some trouble with them sticking, so i used a tiny bit of cooking spray)

Flatten the mounds with a spatula

Bake on a high rack for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and press each cookie flatter with a fork. Return cookies to the oven and bake another 8-10 minutes.

You can make this recipe with as little as 2 tablespoons of oil. But since the cookies aren't very sweet, the added richness enhances the flavor and texture.

Note: You may add cake flour to this recipe - just mix a small amount with the rolled oats until you achieve a drop cookie batter consistency. You can substitute all purpose flour, but the cookies will not be quite as tender.

Serving Size: makes 15 big cookies or 20 regular cookies
