Cranberry-Banana Cookies

(adapted from Daina Kalnins & Joanne Saab)

1/2 c. dried cranberries
1 mashed banana
1/3 c. butter
1/4 c. apple juice
1 egg
1/2 t. vanilla
1 c. oats
1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 t. baking soda.

Mix together the banana, butter, apple juice, egg and vanilla. Add the oats, flour, brown sugar, and baking soda. Fold in the cranberries. Place mounds on baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.

(VARIATION: Today I made these using peanut butter instead of butter, and dark chocolate chips instead of cranberries. They came out pretty good [certainly not Toll House, but not bad for a healthy cookie], and were totally butter/oil-free!)
