Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat two cookie sheets with cooking spray or line with parchment paper; set aside. In a large bowl, stir together banana, peanut butter, honey and vanilla.

  • In a small bowl, combine oats, flour, milk powder, cinnamon and baking soda. Stir the oat mixture into the banana mixture until combined. Stir in dried cranberries.

  • Drop dough by a rounded measuring tablespoon 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Flatten dough mounds slightly. Bake, one sheet at a time, for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.


To make ahead: Store in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag up to 3 days or freeze up to 2 months; thaw before serving.
