In our house banana bread, muffins and the like are something we consider favorites so why not try some banana cookies?
I found this recipe (chef in training) and altered it a bit to my liking and they are delicious. Moist, light and chewy these cookies are delicious and cutting back on a little sugar and butter in the recipe did not alter the taste a bit.
Here is my recipe:
1 1/2 cups all purpose pre sifted flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup softened butter
4 oz. unsweetened apple sauce
2 bananas, mashed
1/3/4 quick oats
1/4 cup chocolate chunks (optional) I did half of the recipe with chocolate chunks and the other without.
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Place dry ingredients in large bowl or upright mixer. Add butter, egg, applesauce, bananas and oatmeal. Beat on low to medium until blended. Batter will be soft and spoon able.
Drop by tablespoons on parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until slightly browned.
8 oz. confectionery sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 to 4 T milk (start with a little at a time until desired consistency)
Using a wire whisk blend above.
Note: These cookies are very moist so allow to dry thoroughly before storing.
