Banana Nut Butterscotch Drop Cookies

"These are yummy and quick to make. I buy bananas while on sale, let them ripen, then freeze them in their own skins. when I am ready to use them I just thaw and pop them right out of their skins"

  • Mix dry ingredients together set aside.
  • Cream sugar and butter, add eggs mixing in well, stir in bananas and flavoring, add dry ingredients and oatmeal fold in nuts and chips (The dough may seem a little sticky and you may be tempted to add more flour, but first try baking off a few. Found that adding more flour made them dry after baking, the oatmeal seems to swell some during the baking process).
  • Drop onto lightly greased baking sheet, bake at 375°F 10-12 minutes.

    These cookies were delicious...nice and moist...texture resembled banana cake and the butterscotch chips added the sweetness. I agree that the mixture did look wet, but just leave it and drop them on the cookie sheet...they turned out great!!! Thanks for sharing. Anita (Ontario)

    Delicious cookies! I followed the recipe as posted, but left out the banana flavoring (didn't miss it). I agree that the entire 11 oz bag of butterscotch chips makes for a very butterscotch chip-dense cookie, but if you love butterscotch, this is just fine! The cookie is very cake-like and moist. Didn't refrigerate the dough (which was very wet) before I dropped the cookies, but I didn't find it hard to work with. Baked for 12 to 13 minutes. Good use for ripe bananas! Thanks for a great, easy recipe.

    A great use for ripe bananas. After reading in the directions that the dough could be sticky, I allowed for that by putting the dough in the refrigerator for about 1 hour to cool completely. For the spices, I used my recipe #145505. The nuts were pecans and for the 1 bag of butterscotch chips, I used a 6 oz bag. A mixture of Splenda and sugar worked very well in this recipe.

    These cookies really are very easy to make. Even my son, who doesn't like bananas, liked these. I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup all purpose flour. I left out the banana flavoring and walnuts. I used 1 cup of quick oats and 1/2 cup old fashioned oats. To cut back on the sweetness, I only used 1/3 cup butterscotch chips. They're great, and I'll definitely make them again!
