With trying to be all health conscious one of the most important things for me has been getting a good breakfast in every day. The other day I found a recipe for Healthy cookies that had three ingredients: oats, bananas, and walnuts. We had a banana that was about ready to go bad so I thought, why not? These aren't gourmet cooking or anything, but they do taste pretty good. They taste a lot like banana bread. Since I only had one banana I made only eight. They took just a few minutes to mix up and then it was just the baking time. Warm from the oven they are pretty good but I think they are just fine also a couple days later. Because of the banana they keep their moistness. They are perfect for breakfast as a lot of them can easily be made ahead and they keep well. The best part is they really are healthy. There are about fifty calories apiece. I like to have three.... and then close the lid so I can't have anymore. Try them out you might find you like them.

2 ripe bananas mashed
1 cup oats
1/4 cup crushed walnuts (I used pecans)
Mix together all ingredients and then place by tablespoon on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350˚ F for 15 min.
The author of the recipe suggested trying different ingredients like raisins, chocolate chips, cinnamon, or almonds.
