Quick Banana Cookies

Glacken Health Quick Banana Cookies

What to do with the over ripe bananas?  I don’t know why I always end up with one or two that I need to find a recipe for.  That is where this particular recipe came from.  I wanted a quick, healthy treat for the kids (and myself!) and there were extra over ripe bananas sitting around.  And, voila, a yummy cookie recipe was discovered!

3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 c gluten-free oats
1/8 c crushed organic walnuts
1 TBSP Shaklee Life Shake, French Vanilla
1/4 c cacao nibs
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all ingredients together, stirring until thoroughly combined.  Put tablespoonfuls on a cookie sheet.  Makes 12 large or 18 smaller.  Cook for 20-25 minutes.  Let cool for 2-5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.  In my house, these are gone within a day!
