Another Easy Dessert

When Adam was a little boy he was allergic to chocolate, so his mom took the traditional recipe for "no bake" cookies that so many of us know, omitted the chocolate, added extra peanut butter and came up with a cookie that to this day is still a favorite for all of us. So the other night while watching tv when I saw an ad for recipes on chiquitabananas.com featuring a no bake cookie I was intrigued. Alex and I both love banana flavored things, and I can't wait to try them.

Chiquita Banana No Bake Cookies

3 bananas with brown spots
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup 2% milk
4 cups quick cooking oats
2 cups chopped walnuts
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 cup peanut butter or cocoa powder (optional)

Combine first four ingredients in sauce pan over medium heat while stirring for 3 minutes or until mixture has a smooth consistency. Remove from stove and stir in the remaining ingredients. Divide batter into 12 cookies, place on wax paper and let cool completely. Store in air tight container.
