I got this recipe from a friend when I was in the tenth grade. She gave me one at lunch and I loved it! (I love banana bread, so this was perfect!) I asked for the recipe that day and I decided to post it! I hope you like it!
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 3⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3⁄4 cup shortening
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 cup banana, mashed
- 1 3⁄4 cups quick cooking oatmeal
- 1⁄2 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
- Combine first 6 ingredients (from the flour to the cinnamon).
- Cut in the shortening.
- Add the beaten egg.
- Alternately add the mashed banana and the oatmeal.
- If desired, add the chopped walnuts next.
- Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet (s) at 400 degrees F for 15 min (check at 9 min).
Really good cookies. Instead of shortening, I used 1/4 cup oil and 1/2 cup applesauce. It affected the consistency, making it a more cake-y type of cookie, but they tasted great. I'll definitely make them again.
Very nice cookie recipe! I added raisins and chocolate chips and omitted the nuts. They taste just like banana bread. They are more cake-like than cookie. I got 42 cookies and my bake time was 12 minutes. Thanks for sharing.
These cookies are great! Super moist and much like banana nut bread. Will make lots more. They did not last long in my home.
