Geneva’s Banana Oatmeal Cookies

¾ cup butter, softened

1 egg, beaten

1 cup mashed bananas

1½ cups flour

½ cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

½ t. baking soda

1 t.salt

¼ t. nutmeg

¾ t. cinnamon

3 cups oatmeal

½ cup nuts, optional

Mix butter, egg and bananas together. Add the flour, sugars, soda, salt and spices. Stir in the oatmeal a little at a time. Drop onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes until cookies are browned around the edges. Yield: 3½ dozen cookies.

Cook’s Notes: The cookies spread out a bit when baking, so allow space in between the drops of batter. Instead of adding nuts, I like to add mini-chocolate chips, so that there is a little taste of chocolate with the banana and oatmeal.
