This recipe is incredibly versatile! The flavor combinations are almost endless, and best of all, they're nicely sweet without any added sugar! All you really need are the oats and bananas, but I've incorporated some of my personal favorite add-ins to the recipe. I also find they stay more moist and delicious if they're kept in an airtight container after cooling.
Place oats in a food processor or blender, and process until they resemble the texture of flour (I've skipped this step before and just used the whole oats. The cookies still come out tasty, just a different texture).
Combine raisins with oats to minimize raisins sticking together.
Combine all other ingredients in a bowl, then add the oat raisin mixture. Mix well. Drop cookies onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. They will not change shapes as they bake, so you may want to flatten them into circles a bit.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. Let them cool then store in an airtight container.
