C is for Cookies!

I thought I would share with you this great cookie recipe that I got from my aunt; who got it from one of the women in her quilting group. It's a great use for an over ripe banana and you could in theory make these sort of healthy by adding dried fruits and healthy nuts. I didn't say I made them healthy though I just said you could.

Breakfast Cookies

Mix together
1 Cup peanut butter
2 sticks (1 cup) butter/margarine (I use butter...)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar (I have use both light and dark and it doesn't matter)
1 large banana
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

stir in
2 1/2 cups quick cook oatmeal
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

okay so this is when you can get creative because you can add what you like and in any amount you like. I used for this batch some coconut, chopped peanuts, some mini chocolate chips, and some butterscotch chips. You could be healthy by using dried fruits (chopping them if needed), various other nuts, or even candied fruits. really you can use anything as long as you can chop it into small bits.

preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place on to ungreased cookie sheet by small tablespoon. Bake 10-12 minutes. Enjoy!
