Peanut Butter Banana Cookies

A cupful of dried banana chips that my grandson wouldn't eat were the inspiration for this recipe. I bet he'll go for the cookies!

Peanut Butter Banana Cookies
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 cup unsweetened dried banana chips, chopped
1/2 cup raisins - optional
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips - optional
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup organic granulated sugar
3 T flax seed meal
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 cup apple sauce

Preheat oven to 350ยบ
Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
Whisk wet ingredients together in a smaller bowl.
Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients to form a stiff dough.
Form balls of dough with a tablespoon and your hands. Flatten the balls onto a prepared cookie sheet (oil, parchment, or silicone baking liner).
Bake for about 13 minutes, depending on your oven and altitude.
