INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Coat a cookie sheet with nonstick spray, or cover with parchment or a nonstick pad.
  2. In a food processor combine all the main ingredients (no add-ins yet). Pulse until the oats are broken into small pieces, the banana is no longer visible, and the whole thing has formed a thick paste.
  3. If you are using any add-ins, transfer the dough to a mixing bowl and add your mix-in of choice. Use a fork to gently fold into the batter until evenly distributed.
  4. Roll into 2-inch balls and evenly space on cookie sheet. Press down gently to flatten balls slightly.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes and cool completely before serving or storing.

NOTES :

Store in an airtight container for up to five days, or freeze for up to three months. This recipe originally appeared at www.buttercreamfanatic.com
