Banana Oat Cookies
1/2 cup organic peanut or almond butter
1/4 cup sweetener of choice (pure maple syrup, honey, organic cane sugar, brown sugar)
1 egg or flax egg
1 ripe banana
1 cup rolled oats
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
*1/3 cup raisins (optional)
Preheat oven to 325 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or Silpat mat.
In a medium bowl, cream together nut butter and sweetener with an electric mixer. Beat in egg and banana. Add oats, cinnamon, baking soda and raisins and mix with a spatula.
Drop by large spoonfuls or roll into 2 inch balls (depending on consistency) and place on lined baking sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cookies are slightly browned.
Cool on wire rack. Super yummy with peanut butter on top!
