Banana Bow Wow Cookies

Yields between 5-6 dozen cookies based on the size of cutter used

Ingredients:
-4 cups whole wheat flour
-2 cups rolled oats
-4 tablespoons ground nutmeg
-2 cups mashed bananas (about 5 medium bananas)
-3/4 cup water
-2 tablespoons vegetable oil
-2 tablespoons honey

Method:

Preheat oven to 325°F.

Stir together flour, oats, and nutmeg until well combined. Add in remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Roll out dough on a floured surface to a 1/4-inch thickness. Using a cookie cutter cut out into desired shapes. (I like to use dog-shaped cutters.) Combine dough scraps and continue to roll and cut shapes until all the dough has been used.

Place the cookies on ungreased foil-lined baking sheets and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.

Note: I have found that this dough freezes well so if you only want to bake off a smaller amount I recommend forming the dough into a log and rolling it in one layer of parchment paper followed by one layer of tinfoil. Twist the ends to secure.
