Oatmeal Banana Cookies

  I love oatmeal banana cookies, and it's a healthy snack to have with a cup of tea.
  The sweet taste of bananas with the spice of cinnamon is delicious.

Recipe: (From the Taste of Home's Complete guide to Baking)

1 cup butter-flavored shortening (I used normal butter)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flower
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
3 medium bananas, mashed
2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips (I skipped this one)

1. In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and cloves; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in the bananas, oats and chocolate chips. (I mixed by hand, with a wooden spoon)

 2. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Immediately remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: about 4 dozen.
