Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

This recipe has been handed down in my family for generations. It's a good way to use overripe bananas. It's also a moist cookie that travels well either in the mail or car. This is usually the first cookie to disappear at my house.

I made these twice so far. The first time I omitted the nuts, added a bit more cinnamon, they turned out great, they stay soft forever. The second time I added dried cranberries and everyone at work loved them! I keep a sheet of foil a rack below the cookies so they don't burn on the bottom, as they have a longer cook time (15 mins was perfect). I'll definitely make these again.

We all loved these! I used ww flour. Instead of white sugar, I used a 1/2 cup of succanant with honey and 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Also used 1/2 cup of butter instead of the shortening. Great

excellent - had the ripest bananas ever and needed something to make quick... substituted half of the white sugar with brown sugar...added one tsp of vanilla, added lots of fresh blueberries! They were awesome - baked at 375 degrees for 16 minutes on baking stones = they were perfect.
