Banana Oat Cookies

Banana Oat Cookies    
Makes 12 to 16 cookies
2 very ripe bananas, mashed ½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup oats, rolled or quick Dash of vanilla extract
Optional add-ins:  small handful high quality dark chocolate chips, or shredded coconut or chopped nuts, or dried fruit
 In a medium size bowl, mash bananas fairly smooth, a few small chunks is ok. Add oats and cinnamon, mix well.  Fold in any extras listed.  Lightly grease a cookies sheet. Place tablespoon fulls on the sheet in little mounds. You can also flatten them a bit if desired. (They don't spread out when baking.)  Bake in oven for 15 -25 minutes depending on the size.
Notes: These are not bread-like but yummy just the same! Due to the bananas they may darken a little after a day or so. Doesn't hurt them a bit!
