Courtesy of Gladys Drew


6 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp heaping baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 medium egg
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup whole wheat flour (or spelt)
1/3 cup white grape juice concentrate
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup grated carrot
3/4 cup chopped nuts (walnuts, sunflower seeds, filberts, almonds)


Combine all wet ingredients, stir well. Sift together all dry ingredients, add stirring well. Add chopped nuts last, stir to mix in. Let sit for about fifteen minutes. Then drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes. Soft, cake-like cookies. You can freeze them -- otherwise, store them in a tight container in the refrigerator.
