Banana Nut Cookies

"These are so easy and so good! Like banana bread in a cookie size! Even better when they're frosted (mmmm...buttercream :). Can roll them and cut them out, or just roll into small balls and squish with the bottom of a glass. I've used the Betty Crocker and Mrs. White's muffin mixes with equal success. Have yet to try with Jiffy mix though since it's always out."

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I am a Colorado ski bum at heart, but am currently stuck in Miami, FL of all places working on my Doctoral degree in physical therapy at UM. I can't wait until I graduate and can get back to the mountains! 2 more years, 2 more years...I love to cook and find it a great way to relax and slow down after classes and I can't wait until I have more free time to be able to do it. I have been in the Air National Guard with Colorado and Florida for the last four years and have been fortunate enough to taste many different foods and stretch my palate. I have lots of recipes waiting to be posted and when I finally get the time I will, so stand by!
