Directions

1. Set baking racks in top and lower thirds of the oven. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat 2 baking pans or cookie sheets with oil spray.


2. Whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and allspice in a mixing bowl. Mix in oats, raisins and nuts.


3. In a blender on medium speed, mix egg white, butter and sugar until smooth. Blend in banana and vanilla until mixture is smooth. Pour banana mixture into bowl with dry ingredients, mixing with spatula until well combined. Batter will be fairly stiff.


4. Drop batter by walnut-size spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets, spacing cookies at least 2 inches apart. Flatten them slightly with the back of a wet spoon, wetting spoon frequently between cookies, to make 2-inch cookies.


5. Bake 10 minutes. Switch position of pans in oven. Bake an additional 5 to 8 minutes or until cookies are golden brown and almost firm in the center when pressed with a finger. Transfer cookies to a baking rack and cool. Stored in airtight container, these cookies keep up to 1 week.


Makes 24 servings.

    Very good more banana bread then oatmeal cookies, nice and moist. I did not use walnuts or all-spice and substituted butter for smart blend. The cookies came out great. I will be making this recipe again. I did not get 24 cookies, I got less than a dozen so the cookies are pretty small. - 9/27/08

    Had a beat-up banana I didn't want to toss so just made these and they are quite good. I used the whole egg, half quick, half old-fashioned oats and twice as much allspice (accidentally). They are soft, came off the cookie sheet well and taste great. Thanks! - 8/7/09

    Made these this morning. I used whole wheat flour and no nuts or raisins. They were good. I already ate too many of them. I agree - cook less time. I cooked them about 12 min. - 3/27/09

    How many cookies is 1 serving? 1 cookie isn't worth the calories even though they sound quite yummy. - 1/16/08

    Not quite as good as grandmas with more butter in them. Successfully made this recipe with whole grain spelt flour for flour, 1.25tsp Stevia liquid for sugar, 1/4c egg substitute for egg white, and coconut oil for butter. - 4/18/07

    I've made this recipe twice now in 3 days and doubled the ingredients each time to make more ..... my hubby and girls just love them so much. I used almonds instead of walnut - very good. - 12/31/08

    These were good. We live at such a high altitude that I needed to add more flour, but they were still moist. I agree with other comments in that they have more of a
    banana bread flavor. - 10/30/08

    Great cookies - my roommates all love them, and they don't even know the health benefits of them. I substituted 1/4 cup of wheat flour instead of purely unbleached - yummy! - 11/17/07

    These are terrific! I used regular Quaker Old Fashioned oats (instead of quick oats) because I had them on hand and it worked out just fine. I got about 20 cookies per batch. Great recipe! - 5/5/13

    Very moist! Tate just like a banana bread. My husband loved them. I cooked at 400 and let them cool and they cam out perfectly. Any less time and I think they would have been underdone! - 1/15/09
