Peanut butter oatmeal raisin cookies

Hi Friends
This recipe for the cookies below were found at watching-what-i-eat.blogspot.com.au. They are delicious.
Peanut Butter Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast Cookies
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed until smooth & creamy
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg, well beaten
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (or more, to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups quick oatmeal  ~ uncooked
  • 1/4 – 1/3 cup raisins
Preheat heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix, in a large bowl ~ mashed banana & peanut butter until completely combined.  Then add in the applesauce, beaten egg, vanilla protein powder, cinnamon & vanilla extract ~ mix again until all are completely combined.
Add in the oatmeal, raisins & baking powder to the banana mixture & combine.
Let dough rest for 10 minutes.  Dough will be ‘thinner’ than my other breakfast cookies ~ more like a really thick batter.
Drop cookie dough/really thick cookie batter ~ by spoonfuls ~ onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.  Shape the cookies into circles, the batter should stay where you put it, if it’s just a tad too thin, add an extra tablespoon or two of oats.  The cookies should not spread when baking.
Bake cookies approx. 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown & done. (cooking time really depends on how big you make your cookies & if you like them a bit more soft in the middle)  Remove from oven when done & let rest on cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then move to cooling rack.
Cool cookies completely, then store in a covered container.
