So I just found this new recipe and tried it. All I can say is wow, wow, wow, it is sooo good... and super-duper simple, too!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;">You need</span>:<br>
2 cups of oats<br>
3/4 teaspoon baking soda<br>
1 teaspoon cinnamon<br>
4 medium over-ripe bananas<br>
1/4 cup sunflower seeds<br>
1/4 cup chopped dates<br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Here's what to do</span>:<br>
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cookie sheet by spraying w/cooking spray or line w/parchment and spray parchment w/cooking spray.<br><br>
Blend the oats in a blender or food processor into a fine (or whatever courseness you desire) flour (OR-buy oat flour). Add baking soda and cinnamon. Transfer to a mixing bowl.<br><br>
Blend banana in processor/blender until smooth. Add it to the mixing bowl w/the oat mixture. Add the seeds and dates, mixing well.<br><br>
Use a 1-oz cookie scoop (or spoon) and drop onto prepared cookie sheet.<br><br>
Bake for about 12 minutes. When done, take out of oven and let stand on sheet for a few minutes to set. Transfer to cooling rack to cool completely. Enjoy!<br><br>
(Next I will make a batch for dd2 without the seeds, dates or cinnamon.)<br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Now... This is a variation that we used as a special treat:</span><br>
We omitted the cinnamon, sunflower seeds and dates. We added some dairy free chocolate chips in place of the seeds and dates. Instant yummy-ness! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:

thanks for posting this. I love sweets and treats but I really need to watch what I eat <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> so these might come in handy.

Finally got around to making these.<br><br>
I used sunflower seed butter instead of chopped sunflower seeds, date spread instead of chopped dates --just what I had on hand. I also added some vanilla because it isn't making cookies unless I add vanilla<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"><br><br>
Absolutely delish! Thanks so much for the recipe! We'll be making these a LOT, and trying all kinds of variations.<br><br>
I have lots of apples and wonder if apple butter could sub for bananas, for example....

I make one that's really similar. I don't grind the oats or blend the bananas though. Just dump it all together and mix it up. My dd used to love to mash the bananas with a potato masher when she was little.<br><br>
Oatmeal Banana Cookies<br><br>
3 ripe bananas, smushed<br>
1/3 cup oil (I use pb and just a little oil when I'm not making them for babies)<br>
2 cups quick oats<br>
1/2 cup nuts (I leave out)<br>
Can add up to a cup of dried fruit and/or chocolate chips.<br>
1 teaspoon vanilla<br>
3/4 teaspoon salt<br>
1 teaspoon baking powder<br><br>
Mix all ingredients together. Bake at 375 for 20 min.<br><br>
These won't flatten or spread while baking so you need to press them into cookie shapes as you put them on the cookie sheet.
