Banana Cookies

I got this recipe from Chet Day's newsletter, and I like it, so you might too! I invited you to visit his website as well.

Banana Oatmeal Cookies
2 cups mashed ripe bananas
4 cups oatmeal (soak them!)
1/2 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup chopped peanuts
1/2 cup applesauce
Cinnamon to taste (about 1/2 to 1 tsp)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl till everything is uniformly moist. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls on an ungreased cookie sheet. The dough will not spread, so flatten it to desired cookie thickness. Bake for 15 minutes. Eat warm or after cooling. Store in an airtight container.
For a variation, you can substitute the nuts with just about anything: raisins, dates, or if you want to be less healthy maybe some chocolate or carob chips.
