Need something sweet after a nutritious and delightful meal? Don't reach for a plate of chocolate chip cookies or a bowl of brownies. Instead, try baking something sweet and yummy, but at the same time very healthy. Homemade oatmeal cookies are a great dessert to satisfy your sugar cravings. 

For these Oatmeal Cookies you will need: 

  • 2 ripe bananas 
  • 1 cup of oats 
  • 1 cup of mixed nuts and raisins 
  • 1 bowl and 1 mixing spoon
  • 1 blender 
  • Baking spray 
  • Baking pan
