Super healthy oatmeal cookies (9 pieces)

2 1/2 dl (0,9 cups) oatmeal
ca 1 1/2 banana (or one big)
For christmas I use cinnamon and ginger as added flavor, and also some dried cranberries. But you can choose yourself what you like and how much you like.
Mash the banana and stir it together with the oats, pour in your chosen flavours and form 9 cockies. Bake them in the oven (175 degrees celcius) for about 8-12 minutes and they are done. So easy to make!
