Wholesome Banana Oatmeal Drops

Today, I decided to do some festive baking. Enjoy! 🙂

You will need:

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp anise seeds
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup mashed bananas
  • 1 cup oats
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a small bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and anise.
  3. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until smooth and creamy. Add egg, vanilla and bananas and beat until well blended. Add flour mixture and mix well. Stir in oats.
  4. Drop by tablespoonfuls (15 mL), about 2 inches (5 cm) apart, onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately transfer to wire racks to cool.

Makes about 4 dozen.
