Banana Nut Cookies

Banana bread meets oatmeal cookie……

3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 ¼ cups oats (quick or regular)
1 teaspoon baking soda
¾ cup brown sugar
1 egg or ¼ cup egg substitute
¼ cup margarine
3/4 cup mashed banana
½ cup nuts
1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)


Note: This dough is best made the day before and refrigerated for at least 8-12 hours ahead of time.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix flour, oats, and baking soda in a small to medium bowl. In a larger bowl, mix the brown sugar, egg, margarine, banana, and vanilla. Slowly start adding the flour mixture to the larger bowl with the egg/sugar mixture until a soft thick dough is formed. Stir in the nuts and drop the cookie dough in rounded spoonfuls (or use a small ice cream scooper) onto a baking sheet to make 24 cookies. Bake for 12- 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
Makes 2 dozen cookies
