Mostly allergy friendly no-bake cookies

I am lactose intolerant and hate peanuts...so when I want no bake cookies, I make these!

1 ripe well-mashed banana
1 cup of sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any other milk)
1/2 cup almond butter (or any other nut butter)
pinch of salt
tsp of vanilla extract or spiced rum
3 cups of oats (instant or old-fashioned...old-fashioned makes it chewier) 

Add banana, sugar, cocoa, milk, salt, and almond butter to pan. Boil all ingredients (except oats and vanilla) in medium saucepan and let bubble for about three minutes, stirring frequently, so it can thicken. 
Remove from heat and add oats and vanilla. Let mixture stand for one minute, then spoon onto wax paper. Cool and enjoy!

(tastes like a chocolatey banana cookie - almond flavor is very subtle)
