Quick and easy these banana and oat biscuits are perfect for when friends drop around with tea and coffee.
This makes an excellent cookie. My mother used to make a cookie like this when I was a little girl. I can't remember if her's was as cake like but I think it was close. Either way, we really love these. I did a few things different. I replaced over half of the butter with applesauce and I used brown sugar as well as white and added in some walnuts for crunch. I think the applesauce, oatmeal, and bananas makes it a good cookie to give children. It's a little healthier than your normal chocolate chip cookie!

I revised the receipe. Instead of chocolate chips I have used dried cranberries and dried blueberries. Everyone loves the cookies. Another thing I have learned is cook all of your cookies on parchment paper and never melt your butter in the microwave. - 28 Jun 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
When I made these cookies I used 1/4 tsp nutmeg in place of the cloves. I kept the cinnamon the same amount. It turned out great, they are moist chewy cookies. I took them to work and they were gone. I've had several requests for this recipe. - 16 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
