there’s fruit in my cookies

I like bananas a lot. But I have this habit of forgetting to eat them and watching them turn icky brown on the counter. I hate wasting food, so I’ve developed a lot of ways to use them up. Banana bread isn’t one of my favorites so I’ve started trying other alternatives, like this.

Tonight I opted for an oatmeal banana cookie recipe from

3/4 cup oatmeal
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 cup vegetable oil (I used apple sauce)
1 egg
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. nutmeg
2 very ripe bananas
2 cups flour

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Combine ingredients in order listed. Drop by the tablespoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet.

Bake 10 minutes or so, until edges brown.

  1. Ripe bananas— you can freeze them—–peel them, put them in a plastic bag and then
    use them for smoothies, banana bread or…….banana cookies!!!!
