- 3 bananas, mashed
- 2 cups oatmeal, uncooked
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/3 cup low-calorie margarine
- ¼ cup skim milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- Preheat over to 350 degrees. You’ll need a cookie sheet, but do not grease it.
- Combine the ingredients and beat well. Let stand five minutes to allow the oats to absorb the moisture. Drop heaping teaspoons onto the ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Let the cookies stand for one minute on the sheet before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
