Peanut Butter Oatmeal Banana Cookies
I did a hunt for a cookie recipe that didn't call for any granulated sugar because I didn't have any left in the house and really wanted to make some cookies for our picnic at the park today. I've also been concerned with the amount of sugar that is in toddler snacks and cookies too and these were very easy to make. I didn't have any Soy milk so I just used homogenized, used whole wheat flour, and added some chocolate chips.

* 1/3 cup peanut butter
* 2 ripe bananas (overripe is fine)
* 1 tsp vanilla
* 2 tbsp soy milk
* 2 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
* 2 ½ cups quick cooking or rolled oatmeal
* dash cinnamon (optional)
* 1/4 cup flour

In a large bowl, mash bananas with a fork until smooth. Add peanut butter, soy milk, vanilla and maple syrup and mix well. Add remaining ingredients and stir until well combined.

Drop spoonfuls of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake 13-16 minutes at 350 degrees, or until done.

Note: This recipe is only truly sugar-free if you used unsweetened peanut butter and unsweetened soymilk, so read the ingredients list and look for soy milk that says "Unsweetened" right on the label.
