Oatmeal and bananas are ideal for cognitive function, thanks to their mineral mix of potassium, magnesium and iron. 

There are numerous variants of these cookies: you can replace the almonds with other nuts of your choice, the cocoa nips with cocoa powder, and the bananas can be replaced with sugar-free apple sauce.
