Eggless Banana Cookies



I baked these cookies this afternoon to use up some large bananas that were over-ripe.  I like to experiment and try baking treats without using eggs and have found that mashed banana can be a good substitute.  These cookies are light but full of flavour and filling, just perfect for an afternoon pick me up or after school snack.

Eggless Banana Cookies

125g butter
220g sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
3 large or 4 small over-ripe bananas, mashed
225g self raising flour
45g coconut
45g rolled oats
Method:

Preheat your oven to 200C/180C Fan.  Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper.

Using a stand mixer or electric beaters, beat the butter, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon until pale and fluffy.

Add the mashed bananas then mix until combined.  Add the flour, oats and coconut then stir until thoroughly and completely combined.

Dollop teaspoonfuls of the mixture on to the prepared baking trays.  Make sure you leave room for the cookies to spread.

Bake for 10 minutes and leave the cookies to cool the tray for a couple of minutes before carefully transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
