  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium)

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Beat bananas, peanut butter, honey and vanilla until blended. In another bowl, combine next 6 ingredients; gradually beat into wet mixture. Stir in dried cranberries.
  2. Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls 3 inches apart onto greased baking sheets; flatten to 1/2-in. thickness.
