Flourless Whole Grain Banana Raisin Cookies

I'm writing this recipe on the August Full Moon, which just happens to be the Grain Moon. I didn't plan it, but sometimes perfection just happens. These cookies are flour free, sugar free, oil free, and gluten free if you so choose. We love them, and I love making them for my 2-year-old grandson, so he can have a treat without getting all sugar-crazy. I'm that kind of grandmother.

Whole Grain Banana Raisin Cookies
makes 12-15

1 very ripe banana, mashed
2 cups cooked grain, such as quinoa, brown rice, or any combination you like
2 flax eggs (2 T flax meal + 6 T water, chilled for 15 minutes)
1/2 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 350º.
Line a baking sheet with parchment.
Mix all ingredients together, and place in large spoonfuls on the baking sheet.
Flatten the cookies slightly and shape the edges. They won't change much as they bake.
Bake for 45-50 minutes at 350º, until the bottoms are golden brown.
