Banana Spice Cookies

Banana Spice Cookies

We had several over-ripe bananas that needed to get used ASAP, so I tried this recipe out. The cookies are very soft and light, and they taste like banana bread :)


  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 1/4 cup flour (I used 1 cup white flour and 1 1/4 cup wheat)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp cloves
  • 3 over-ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup nuts (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Beat butter or margarine with an electric mixer until soft.
  3. Add 1 1/4 cup flour, sugar, egg, baking powder, vanilla, cinnamon, baking soda, and cloves. Beat until thoroughly combined.
  4. Add remaining 1 cup flour. Beat in bananas and stir in nuts.
  5. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto a greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake in a 375 degrees F oven for 8 - 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool cookies on a rack.
  7. Frost with a butter frosting if desired.

Your recipe lists 2-1/4 cups flour total, yet you mention 2-1/4 cups whole wheat and 1 cup white. Is this right?

Editor's Note: It should be 1 1/4 whole wheat flour and 1 cup white for a total of 2 1/4. The recipe has been changed. Thanks for your help with this.
