Flourless, Banana Breakfast Cookies

I found this recipe on pinterest. It was fast enough that I could throw them together Sabbath morning before church! Even my "I don't like bananas" kid liked them! Here's the recipe, with my notes for next time.

2-3 overripe bananas, mashed (I used 2 large bananas)
1 1/2 c rolled oats
1 c unsweetened applesauce
a large handful of dried cranberries (my girls said we need more next time)
cinnamon to taste, I added quite abit (I thought), and it needs more . . .
it also needs salt

drop in spoonfuls onto baking stone (or baking sheets, but you'd probably want to grease them, or use parchment paper, these almost stuck to my baking stones). Bake 35 min at 350 degrees.

Crockpot Taco Soup

This is a quick, easy lunch that we enjoy. It's roughly based on the recipe on this site, but we don't have a "large family" so we've adapted it.

1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can corn
1 can black beans
1 can some other kind of beans
1 can tomato sauce or diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp oregano

Mix in crockpot, cook on high, 2-3 hours.

Serve with sour cream, shredded cheese, fresh cilanto & tortilla chips
