We enjoyed these cookies and it was a great way to use the brown bananas. A little cinnamon is also a good addition. Made for ZWT6 and were decorated by DD.

They're like banana bread, in cookie form. I added nutmeg - they would also be good with cinnamon and brown sugar.

These were wonderful cookies - I'm rating as a 4 instead of a 5, just because I think you need to make sure the batter is a little thicker, or they'll come out a thin and spread more than expected. I love the flavour, and I did add 1/4 cup of cinnamon chips and the nuts used were walnuts. I used butter, too, so next time I'll try shortening (or 1/2 and 1/2) and up the oats/flour if needed. I think once you make these a couple of times and get the consistency down, they'd be the best thing in the cookie jar! Made for Zaar Stars - thanks, iewe!!!
