Ingredients

  • cups quick oats
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ cup dried cranberries chopped
  • ¼ cup pepitas (green pumpkin seeds) toasted (see note)
  • cup chopped pecans toasted (see note)

Instructions

  • In mixing bowl, mash bananas well with a fork.
  • Add peanut butter, honey, vanilla, salt and cinnamon, and stir until well-mixed.
  • Stir in oats, chopped cranberries, pepitas and pecans.
  • Drop by heaping teaspoon onto baking stone or lined baking sheet. Flatten slightly with back of spoon. Note: These cookies don't spread, so you can space them close together.
  • Bake at 325° for 14-16 minutes until tips start to brown.

Notes

Toasting the pepitas and chopped pecans:
This step is optional, as they can be added raw/untoasted, but toasting enhances their nutty flavour. To toast, add both to a frying pan and heat over medium heat, stirring often until fragrant and browned. (Approx 10 mins.) 
Substitutions and other options: 
  • Regular peanut butter can be used in place of natural peanut butter. 
  • Dried cranberries can be replaced with raisins.
  • Feel free to replace the pecans with walnuts, almonds, peanuts or to add chocolate chips, toasted coconut, or any of your personal favourite add-ins.
