Ginger Oat Cookies

Courtesy of Ellen S I find this cookie delicious, and I think it would be a very nice 'clif bar' type base. I've been meaning to try adding dried apricots, dried plums, or dried nectarines to make a heftier snack. I love these cookies!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 jars baby food (w/bananas)
1/2 cup molasses
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup wheat flour
2 cups oats
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ginger
3 tsp cinnamon

Directions:

Mix and bake at 350 F 10-15 minutes. The above makes 42 tiny cookies at 25 cal, .8g fat, .3g fiber each.

For the 1 1/2 jars baby food, sometimes I just use pure banana, though I think I like it better with baby food. Use your favorite combination of banana/applesauce/prune puree. If I use only banana, I make sure it's ripe, obviously, and nuke it first to make it more liquidy and easier to mix.
