These are soft, delicious cookies that taste just like banana bread. Kids love them as a quick breakfast or as a 'grab and go' snack. The bananas are complemented (and not overpowered) with the True Cinnamon, Mace and Clove spices. Just the right combination of spices to enhance the banana flavor. It's an easy-to-make treat everyone will love!
1/2 cup butter (one stick), room temperature
1/2 cup sugar (white)
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup mashed bananas (about 2 1/2 large bananas)
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp True Cinnamon (reserve 1/2 tsp to sprinkle on cookies before baking)
1 tsp Mace Powder
1/4 tsp Clove Powder
1 cup chopped walnuts
Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a small bowl, mix the mashed bananas with the baking soda. Set aside. In a medium sized mixing bowl cream the butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until fluffy. In a separate bowl blend together the flour, salt and spices. Add the banana mixture to the butter mixture and blend until combined. Add the flour mixture and blend together. Fold in the walnuts. Drop the batter in small mounds on the lined cookie sheet (cookies will spread some). Sprinkle the tops of each cookie with the reserved True Cinnamon mixed with a little sugar. Bake for about 12 minutes or until the cookies are golden around the edges. Cool the baked cookies on a wire rack.
