Recipe: Banana Oatmeal Cookies


I've been loving my new found joy of baking lately, you may recall my Coffee Drop Cookies or the Old Fashioned Sour Cream ones from the McCall's Cookie Collection... these Banana Oatmeal cookies were PERFECT when I had some brown bananas that I just didn't have the heart to throw in the trash. I usually whip up a loaf of banana bread but this easy recipe may just work it's way into my regular banana rotation! 

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

1 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup soft butter or margarine
1 cup of sugar
1 egg
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup raw quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts


Sift Flour with salt, baking soda, nutmeg and cinnamon; set aside. In a large bowl, mix  butter, sugar and with handheld mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in bananas and vanilla extract until smooth. Gradually stir in the flour mixture and oats until well combined. Stir in nuts and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and grease your cookie sheet. Drop batter by the round teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto the cookie sheets. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden. Let cool before enjoying!
