I got this recipe from a sparkpeople email I received today. I signed up for sparkpeople a while ago and have done nothing with it but saved a few recipes. I was in the mood to bake a little tonight but didn’t want to have a ton of cookies laying around calling my name all weekend either!
The recipe said 24 servings and I made exactly 24 small cookies. I think they’re good, but they do taste kinda healthy.
3/4 c flour (recipe calls for unbleached, I used all-purpose)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1 c quick cooking oats
1/3 c raisins (I omitted)
1/4 c chopped walnuts (I omitted)
1 large egg white
3 tbsp butter, cut in 1/2 in pieces
1/2 c packed dark brown sugar
1 small banana, cut in 1 in pieces
1 tsp vanilla
Set baking racks in top and lower third of the oven. Preheat oven to 400.
Whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and allspice in mixing bowl. Mix in oats, raisins and nuts.
In a blender on medium speed, mix egg white, butter, and sugar until smooth. Blend in banana and vanilla until smooth. Pour banana mixture into dry ingredient bowl, mixing with spatula until well combined. Batter will be fairly stiff.
Drop batter in walnut sized spoonfuls onto baking sheets, spacing cookies about 2 in apart. Flatten them slightly with the back of a wet spoon, wetting spoon frequently between cookies.
Bake 10 mins. Switch position of pans in oven. Bake for additional 5-8 mins (5 mins was more than plenty for in my oven) or until cookies are golden brown and almost firm in the center. Transfer to cool racks. Can be stored in airtight container for up to 1 week.
