Banana Cranberry Oat Cookies- No refined sugars!

I have been reading up on refined sugars and how bad they are for us. Plus I figured out that I am allergic to refined sugars(they make me fat!). So this recipe is pretty darn good for having no refined sugar in it. It's sweetness comes from pineapple juice concentrate and honey. Let me know what you think!
Banana Cranberry Oat Cookies

1 C white flour
1 C whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 C olive oil
1/4 C pineapple juice concentrate
1/4 C honey
2 lg egg whites
1 C mashed banana
1 tsp vanilla
2 C quick oats
1/2 C chopped pecans
1/2 C craisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine oil, egg, juice, honey, bananas, and vanilla and mix well. Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and oats until well blended. Stir in craisins and nuts. Bake for 10-12 minutes. These cookies probably taste even better the next day once the flavors have a chance to mix, but the kids were eating them like crazy straight from the oven.
