"These cookies received rave reviews from my husband's friends, who dropped by as the cookies were coming out of the oven. They loved the spices. I made a few tweaks to the recipe. I used freshly ground soft white wheat for the flour. I, also, used a whole egg instead of the white. Because I live at 7,800 ft., I used 1/4 cup shortening and 1/2 cup butter, instead of margarine. Next time, I plan to add nuts. Walnuts, pecans or even sunflower seeds would be great."
Preheat oven at 375. Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray. In a mixing bowl, combine margarine, bananas, egg white, and vanilla. In another mixing bowl, combine sugars, flour, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, baking powder, and rolled oats. Drop by tablespoons 2" apart onto prepared baking sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden. NOTES : These are a soft cake like cookie. Recipe by: The Banana Lovers Cookbook Posted to T.nt (sdm-marked) - Prodigys Recipe Exchange Newsletter by Catherine
Jackiechan042003 1y agoIt has its pros and cons. I added peanut butter and chocolate chips which was good. Very soft cake-like cookie. Something seemed to be missing though. Can't put my finger on it, all in all good recipe.
MaggzD 1y agoI substituted applesauce for the fat... The result was an excellent cake-like cookie with fewer calories.

bindi13 2y agoYum! It was a rainy day and we had some over ripe bananas - so made this with my 3 year old. They are a huge hit! Added some dates and sultanas we had in the cupboard which was nice :))
debbieferriday 3y agoFab, will make again, better a lots of small cookies rather than fewer large ones.
tamsimnew 3y agoI think these are simple and great! I amped up the vanilla and cinnamon (because I always do) and used one banana and half a cup of applesauce. These are wonderfully addictive!
csunshine7313 3y agoI'm sorry but I thought these were not good at all. No one in my family liked them. I ended up throwing them away. What a shame they sounded really good.
