1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour*

1 cup sugar

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

3/4 cup margarine (softened to just melted)

1 egg, gently whisked*

1 cup mashed bananas (which equates to roughly 3 small bananas)

1 3/4 cup dry oatmeal*

1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans*


  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Sift the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon into a large mixing bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, smash the bananas. Then add the melted margarine and then egg. Mix well.
  • Add the banana mixture into the flour bowl and mix well with a big wooden spoon.
  • Mix in the oatmeal and nuts until thoroughly blended.
  • Drop from a teaspoon onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Immediately remove from pan and allow to cool on a wire rack.

SERVING: The best thing is that the recipe yields about 3 dozen and they store really well in a sealed container stacked between sheets of parchment paper.
