I had purchased a couple of large bags of fresh cranberries when they were in season, and froze them so I could have them throughout the rest of the year. The frozen cranberries work beautifully in this recipe.

  • 2 bananas, very ripe
  • 1 1/2 c gluten-free rolled oats
  • 2 1/2 tbsp dates, pitted, chopped
  • 2 1/2 tbsp walnuts, chopped
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon, ground
  • 1/8 tsp ginger, ground

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper.

In a large bowl mash the bananas with a fork.
