Servings 12 cookies

Ingredients  

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (or other nut butter)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 1/4 cups quick oats
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries or raisins
  • 2/3 cup chopped nuts, such as almonds, walnuts or pistachios

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the peanut butter, honey, vanilla extract, mashed bananas, salt and cinnamon.
  • Add the oats, dried cranberries and nuts and mix until combined. Scoop about 1/4-cup mounds of the cookie dough onto the baking sheet, flattening each cookie slightly. (The cookies will not spread while baking, so you can space them relatively close together.)
  • Bake the cookies for 14 to 16 minutes until they’re golden brown but still soft. Remove the cookies from the oven then allow them to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a rack to cool completely.
