These oatmeal banana cookies are a great way to use up a pair of ripe bananas and boost the nutritional content of a kid's favorite treat ... cookies.

Oatmeal banana cookies are packed with fiber, protein, and natural sweetness from the bananas and honey, and they make a great treat for after school or as a snack on the go. I also love they are easy to make and can be customized with your child's favorite add-ins, such as chocolate chips or chopped nuts. Plus, you can feel good about your kid reaching for one of these instead of a less healthy treat!

  3. Add the oats, almond butter, honey, raisins, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt to the bowl with the bananas. Stir everything together until well combined.
