Banana Bread Cookies! These are a lovely little cookie, cross banana bread, hence the name. They’re soft inside, a little like cake in texture, and a little bit crispy on the outside. The recipe itself is very straightforward and doesn’t take long to make. It’s also flexible in that if you wanted to add raisins, or nuts, perhaps some dried apricot or cranberries, chocolate chips, then go ahead! For this recipe, we’ve added chopped walnuts. They always seem to be a lovely pairing with banana.
This recipe was created by one of our great cooks, Carina. When Carina made these over the weekend, the first thing hubby said when he tried one was “it taste like banana bread but in a cookie!” Anyway, Carina got the thumbs up from hubby for the recipe and he went on to devour another few cookies with his coffee! Carina decided they’d call them Cari’s Breakfast Yummies!
They’re great for snacks, breakfasts, lunch boxes, picnics, gosh, the sky’s the limit with when you could eat these. Really… anytime is a good time for Banana Bread Cookies!
Carina says this recipe is now a ‘keeper’ and wanted to share it with everyone here to enjoy too! So please enjoy!

1 1/3 cups All purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup chopped walnuts, raisins, chocolate chips, dried cranberries etc. (you choose what you prefer)
1. In a bowl, add the wet ingredients and combine.
2. In a separate bowl, add all the dry ingredients and combine
3. Add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet mixture and combine. Chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
4. Preheat oven to 350 F, Line a baking sheet with parchment or grease / spray with non stick oil
5. Use a tablespoon and drop the mixture on the baking sheet in spoonfuls.
6. Bake for about 13 – 15 minutes. Allow to cool on cooling rack.
NOTE: These are quite a soft cookie, and a little crisp on the outside. If you want a crispier cookie, leave in the oven for a couple of minutes longer. However, they will harden slightly as they cool, so if you are not sure, remove one after the stated time and see if it is to your liking.
