Healthy Cookies make it to the Cookie-jar

Banana Bread Cookies -

Did you know you can take your banana bread recipes and make cookies? Yes sir, you can. Here's one of mine as I have a few kicking around. You will need....1/2 cup of white sugar, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1 cup butter, softened, 2 eggs (I use free-range brown), 1 tsp vanilla extract, 2 cups all-purpose flour (can also use whole wheat flour) 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 3 ripe bananas (mashed), 2 cups rolled oats, 1 cup walnuts & chocolate chips if desired.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Cream together butter and sugars. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Add the flour, soda & cinnamon and mix well. Mix in the bananas, oats, walnuts and chocolate chips until well mixed. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto a greased or parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes. While still warm place in a covered tupper-ware container to keep them soft. ENJOY!

For all you dish lovers the plate is a Noritake - Bone china called Shenandoah.


  1. I love banana nut bread=it reminds me of my childhood...I never thought about making cookies our of it!!

  2. That recipe sounds great. I'll have to make that. Hey I also love your dishes and how you tell about them.

    I make homemade candles in Vintage Teacups that I buy off the internet. Im waiting for the mood to strike me and make another batch up. But when I do I will let you know when I make some more and I'll send you one. Plus the candles are wonderful too, smell a whole room up.
