1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
I cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 cup butter
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2-3)
1 3/4 cups quick cooking oats
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
In a bowl combine the first 6 ingredients; beat in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add egg, bananas and oats; mix well . Stir in cranberries and walnuts.
Drop by generous teaspoons onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 11-14 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.
I baked cookies for the first time in at least 25 years. These were definitely worth waiting for. They’re just as good after they are a couple days old as they are hot from the oven.
Of course they also freeze well if you have any left to freeze!
