Oatmeal Banana Cookies

These are an odd creation that I'm not sure meet the requirements in my mind to be called a cookie. They did not rise at all, so they looked quite odd. The flavor was OK, but this is probably not worth repeating.

Oatmeal Banana Cookies
1/3 cup peanut butter (original recipe called for butter)
3 ripe bananas, peeled and mashed
2 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats
1/4 cup skim milk
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Melt peanut butter in a microwave-safe dish. Add all remaining ingredients except milk. Add milk last to make sure you only add enough to create a moist mixture, not a soupy one.

Let stand for 5 minutes until oats are wet. Lightly grease a cookie sheet. Spoon by tablespoons onto the greased cookie sheet. Bake 15-20 minutes.

Let cookies cool on cookie sheets for one minute, and then cool completely on wire racks.
