Mosaic Monday - Cookies!
Joining in with Mary from the Little Red House for another Mosaic Monday. Check out the Little Red House for lots more fun mosaics from some very talented people!
There's always a load of leftover bananas here and how many banana breads can you post about? So I googled and ended up with Banana Bread cookies that I found at Buns in my Oven, hers looked so good, I couldn't resist. They actually turned out great and I didn't burn a pot holder, a cookie or myself this time. This one's a keeper!
I pretty much followed the recipe, except I added walnuts and left out the cloves. Surprised myself that I could actually bake! Mr. Griller helped. He had the first taste!
Banana Bread Cookies

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 ripe bananas, mashed
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In the bowl of your mixer cream together the butter and sugars. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Add the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon to the creamed mixture and mix well. Mix in the bananas, oats, walnuts and chocolate chips until well incorporated. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto a greased or parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
and last but not least...
Why are bananas never lonely?
Because they hang around in bunches.
Go ahead and groan!
