Peggi's Banana Breakfast Cookies

Submitted by: BJMOOMEY

Introduction

These are a delicious treat or on-the-go breakfast.. If done in the dehydrator, they are like homemade granola bars.
*****
The original recipe called for quick oats, but we like the chewyness of the regular ones and use those instead.
*****
Any chopped nuts work well, but walnuts are easiest to find in Michigan.
*****
The original recipe calls for 1/2 tsp. salt, but my husband and mother are salt sensitive, so we leave it out.
*****
The original recipe does not call for cinnamon, but it's our favorite spice flavor, so we added it. My sister adds 1 tsp.; I add 2.
