Banana anything is always great in my book, and these cookies are certainly no exception. Soft and chewy and authentically banana flavored…I am pretty sure you could win many people over with these. They couldn’t be easier, and chances are, you will have most ( if not all) of the ingredients on hand.
I didn’t add any spices to these, but you can. These cookies are like tiny little banana breads, just a tad chewier. And, I prefer my banana bread boring and banana-y. But if you like a little spice.. add away!
They really remind me a lot of these “mini” banana nut muffins I would get as a kid. Except these taste waaay better… of course.
Banana Walnut Cookies
- 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
- 1 cup cold Earth Balance margarine
- 3 tsp EnerG egg replacer frothed with 4 tbsp warm water
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 large banana, ripe
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- spices, any you choose (optional)
- 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts for tops of cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a couple of cookie sheets.
Mix all ingredients except flour and walnuts together in large bowl. Gradually stir in flour. Your cookie batter will resemble this:
Drop by spoonfuls, about 2 inches apart, onto greased cookie sheets. You will probably have to coax them a little to make them into circles. But, make sure they are still in mounds because they will spread during baking.
Sprinkle chopped nuts on top and bake in preheated oven for about 13-15 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet.
