1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup natural peanut butter

In a large bowl, stir together egg, peanut butter, honey, banana, and olive oil.
Stir in flour and oatmeal; mix well.
Transfer dough to a parchment-lined board. Kneed several times until dough is smooth. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness with rolling pin. Cut out desired shapes with cookie cutter and placed on prepared baking sheet.
