Banana Nut Bread Cookies

What you need: 

1 1/4 cups flour (I use unbleached, all purpose)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil (I use canola)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
4 tablespoons nondairy milk
1 banana, mashed
1 teaspoon baking powder
handful walnuts, crushed

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix together flour, soda and salt in a small-medium bowl and set aside. Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
2. In a large bowl, mix together oil, sugar, milk, and vanilla. Mix in mashed banana and baking powder. Add ingredients in the small bowl and stir well.
3. Once it is well stirred, lightly mix in the crushed walnuts. Drop by tablespoons onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake 9-12 minutes (depending on your oven).
For a less greasy mixture, I'm sure you could add more milk and less oil, but I haven't tried it yet. And this recipe only makes 12-13 cookies for me, but I like to make giant cookies (heaping tablespoons for me!).'

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I just made these for my partner and he thought they were either too "baking soda-y" or too salty. They were good but I would cut down on the salt, and add cinnamon.

I threw these together as an extra thing to bring for a potluck since my frozen banana stockpile is getting a little out of hand, and they were super popular! Subs: I used white whole wheat flour, brown sugar, primarily coconut oil (and a bit of canola) and added cinnamon and some chopped raisins. Didn't have any issues with the batter not holding up - it definitely wouldn't make for sculpture building material, but it didn't spread out on the sheet too much at all.

I subbed all applesauce for the oil - I am just anti oil, as much as I can be, in baking. They turned out so soft and delicious, kinda cake-like which is the perfect cookie to me!! Great recipe, thanks so much for sharing.

I added choc. chips and 2 tablespoons of ground flax seed..oh and Cinnamon. My only regret is not doubling the recipe...now stop reading this and go make em! CHEERS! :)>>>  :)>>>  :)>>>

These are fantastic! soft and banana-ey, but tasty and holds together like a cookie should. I used chocolate chips in place of walnuts, but they'd be delicious with both added in. I made a double batch. I used 1/2 cup of canola oil and 1/2 cup of applesauce, I used less than double the amount of salt, and less than double the amount of baking soda and powder, and 3/4 cup of sugar. Everything else I just doubled, and they turned out lovely. I wish I could tell you exactly how many cookies a double batch made for me, but quite a few of them got snatched up right out of the oven :3. I will certainly make them again. Thanks!

yum yum yum! i made these to share at the Bold Native showing in Seattle tonight. The only thing I changed was used half coconut oil and half apple sauce instead of all oil, and used blueberries instead of walnuts. They are super pretty, and even more delicious than they look!

These were incredible. They're the only cookies I can make that turn out amazing that my friends will eat. I use just under a half cup of oil though to make them less oily, and added 1/4 more of flour. If you're just making them for the first time, don't freak out that your "dough" doesn't look like regular non-vegan dough. It'll be kinda thin, but they'll still fluff. Also, I made a batch with an added half tablespoon of cinnamon, and they were also fantastic. I'm sure everyone else knows this, but they taste best with a really old banana :) Thanks for the recipe!

YUM! i made these to the recipe (except eyeballing the baking powder & soda, i am a bad baker). thought they were a bit greasy, so i am going to sub applesauce next time, and i added a bit of coconut on the last two cookies just for shits and giggles. It was also nice, might i add.. that i was able to let my daughter go at the raw batter as she pleased.. and she did please.
