Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line one or two cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

Mash the bananas in a large bowl. Add the oats, dates, oil, vanilla and cinnamon. Mix well. Set aside for 15 minutes.

Drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets. These cookies will not spread, so you can shape them, if you like.

Bake cookies for 20 minutes or until they are golden brown. Leave them on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
