Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly coat two cookie sheets with cooking spray; 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. 2. Using a ¼-cup measure, drop mounds of dough 3 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. With a thin metal or small plastic spatula dipped in water, flatten and spread each mound of dough to a 2¾-inch round, about ½ inch thick. 3. Bake, one sheet at a time, for 14 to 16 minutes or until browned. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 2 months; thaw before serving. 'Zonya's: Breakfast in a Cookie' 1. Preheat oven to 375*F. Spray cookie sheets with nonstick spray. 2. Mix oat bran and OJ together in a small bowl and set aside to soak for 10 minutes. 2. Meanwhile, combine in a large bowl ingrs: applesauce thru orange extract, using an electric mixer, until smooth. 3. Measure flour and leaveners into a sifter and sift over applesauce mixture. Add the soaked oat bran and remaining ingredients to the large bowl and mix thoroughly with a strong wooden spoon. 4. Drop by slightly heaping tablespoons 1" apart. (To save time, load cookie sheets up with as many cookies as possible, baking 2 trays at a time. Stagger trays 1 to the left and 1 to the right, to allow air circulation around each outer edge.) 5. Bake until lightly browned or 12 to 14 minutes. *If you don’t have whole-wheat pastry flour, you can substitute with 1½ cups whole-wheat and 1½ cups all-purpose flour.
