We're all bananas for bananas



For the letter B, I made banana cookies. These cookies were an oatmeal cookie with mashed bananas. They were a soft cake like cookie. No disasters with the banana cookies...they were tasty, "healthy" (ah, somewhat I suppose) and were eaten up quickly!

Banana Oatmeal Cookies
. 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
. 1/2 cup white sugar
. 1/2 cup brown sugar
. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
. 1 teaspoon salt
. 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
. 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
. 3/4 cup butter
. 1 egg, beaten
. 1 cup mashed ripe bananas
. 1 3/4 cups rolled oats

DIRECTIONS
. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves.
. Cut in butter until almost no lumps remain.
. Stir in the egg and bananas; mix well (I used electric mixer here).
. Finally, stir in the oats. Drop by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for approximately 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are browned. Remove from pans immediately to cool on wire racks.
