Banana Nut Oatmeal Cookies

Yummy and easy to bake! Our kids love it, and so do we. So indulge! Save up your points for it! Makes about 30 cookies.

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1  1/4 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter
1 cup mashed bananas
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 egg
1/2 cup chopped nuts of your choice (a little more if you want!)

Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt and sugar. Add in the butter and mix on medium for a minute. Add the mashed bananas, vanilla, cinnamon and egg and mix well on medium for 2 minutes. Fold in the nuts.

I like to line my cookie sheets with parchment paper. You can find that in the baking section of your store. It just makes cleanup a lot easier and also prevents the cookies from sticking to the sheet. Just drop the dough 2 inches apart, like so.

I also like to use a cookie dough scoop. Mush easier than using a plain spoon to drop the dough! You can find it in the baking section of your store. Mine cost about $ 3.50, so it was a good deal. It looks like this.

Now bake in a preheated 350F oven for about 12-15 minutes. Let cool for at least 30 minutes. Then enjoy!

About 3 points per cookie. So yummy, you might be tempted to eat 10 of them. Be careful! LOL!
