I found the recipe on allrecipes.com and adapted it based on people's suggestions:
Healthy Banana Cookies
3 ripe bananas
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup dates, pitted and chopped
1/3 cup applesauce
1/4 finely shredded coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a large bowl, mash the bananas.
Stir in oats, dates, applesauce, coconut, vanilla, and cinnamon.
Mix well, and allow to sit for 15 minutes.
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly brown.
This was my first time cooking with dates. I figured it would be easiest to chop them up in the food processor - and it was! However, I kept chopping and chopping them until they coagulated together and looked very much like a Larabar. So... don't over do it with the food processor. :) It made it more difficult to stir it all together.
They look granola-y but are really pretty soft. Perfect for Silver who just has her six teeth in the front.
