  • Whisk oats, almond flour (or almond meal), cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl. Mash bananas, almond butter (or peanut butter) and vanilla together in a large bowl until creamy and well combined. Add the dry ingredients and raisins (or dates) to the banana mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until combined. Scoop or roll level tablespoons of dough into balls and place on the prepared baking sheet, making 12 cookies per batch. Press with a fork to flatten slightly.

  • Bake until firm to the touch and light brown on the bottom, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Tips

Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.

To make ahead: Store airtight at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Equipment: Parchment paper or silicone baking mat
