Vegan Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are incredibly easy to make, a filling snack, and low in sugar. They are my go to when I need a snack for work the next day. They are essentially granola made into cookies. The banana makes them moist and the oatmeal makes them filling. There is a slight sweet flavor from the maple syrup. Best of all, they only take 10 minutes to make!
