Banana Oat Monster Cookies

I love making yummy, healthy snacks for my kids. They love snacking and so I always look for the best snacks to give them a boost of nutrients, not just empty calories. I came across a recipe for banana oat cookies a long time ago and have been making these for a while now.  I modified them to make them much more fun for my kids and named them Banana Oat Monster Cookies. (“Monster” because they are chock full of a bunch of yummy things!) They are great for snacks, but are also healthy enough to be a breakfast cookie.

What I love most about these is how healthy they are. They are made from just bananas and oats, then you can add in your favorite mix-ins to make your kids love them, too. There is no dairy, no eggs, no sugar, and no gluten, so these are great for anyone with food allergies.

2 cups Oats
2 Tablespoons Nut Butter (Optional, but holds them together better~ Can use Almond, Peanut, or Sunflower)

Extra add-Ins:
Chopped Nuts
Shredded Coconut
Dried fruit (Raisins or cranberries are good in them)
Chocolate Chips ( I like using mini)
Sunflower Seeds
Mash the bananas. Add in the oats and mix well. Mix in the vanilla and nut butter. Choose your extra add-ins. Add about 1/4 cup of each one you would like to add. Mix well.
Scoop onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or lightly sprayed with cooking oil.  Bake in an oven preheated to 375 degrees F.  Bake 10 minutes.
