Start the Week with Something Sweet

After Friday's burst of vitriol I thought it was best to post something sweet today. So I made up a recipe.
Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Preheat oven to 350°

In a large bowl, cream together:

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter

When well creamed, add:

1/2 cup peanut butter
1 well mashed ripe banana

Combine and add to the creamed ingredients:

1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp almond milk (or milk)

In a separate bowl, sift together:

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose (white) flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp powdered ginger
1/8 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinammon

Add to the wet mixture, beating until smooth, then add:

1 cup quick rolled oats
1/4 cup coconut

Beat the mixture well.

Drop by the teaspoon full onto baking sheets lined with bakers parchment and bake until bottoms and edges are light brown - approximately 10 minutes.

Makes about 2 dozen cookies.


I would have used almond butter, but it's a new jar, and, frankly, I didn't feel like stirring it. It takes forevvvver and I always end up with oil everywhere.

Raisins would be nice. I didn't have any. Sad face.

I think the sugar could be reduced. And, the butter too. That might make them too healthy though. Ewwwww!!!!

Hope you enjoy.
