Servings: 30 larger cookies


  • 1 stick butter or one half cup or 8 tablespoons softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 bananas mashed
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats uncooked


  • Cream butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla extract with mixer in a large bowl. Mix in mashed bananas. In a smaller bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Combine with first ingredients and continue mixing with mixer. Pour in oats and mix all together. Drop by spoonfuls onto a sprayed or greased baking sheet and bake in preheated 350 degree oven 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Makes about 30 large cookies.(I use about 2 tablespoons of cookie mix per cookie because we like them large) You can easily get 36 smaller cookies from this.


You can add peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, nuts, white chocolate chips, raisins or even coconut to these cookies. These banana oatmeal cookies are very versatile. I usually divide my batter into 3 bowls and add all kinds of chips, nuts, etc. to make the cookies more interesting.
