Banana-Oat Breakfast Cookies

Make a steaming cup of tea or coffee and enjoy it with a healthy breakfast cookie!

Banana-Oat Breakfast Cookies
Doc Oz. Magazine recipe adapted
Makes 11 cookies

3           ripe bananas
1 & 1/2    cups rolled oats
1/4       cup almond or peanut butter
1          tablespoon agave
1          teaspoon vanilla extract
            pinch of salt
1/2       teaspoon cinnamon
1/2       cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/3       cup nuts, such as walnuts, almonds or pistachios, roughly chopped
1/3       cup dried fruit, I used dried cranberries

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork.  Stir in the oats, almond butter, agave, vanilla, salt and cinnamon until well combined.  Fold in the coconut flakes, nuts, and dried fruit and let the mixture sit for 10 minutes so the oats absorb some liquid.

Drop by quarter cupfuls onto a parchment lined baking sheet.  Flatten cookies with a fork and bake 22-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool on a baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
