    Serves: 18 

    • 250g butter
    • 1 cup (220g) white sugar
    • 1 cup (150g) packed brown sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon banana essence
    • 1 1/2 cups (185g) plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon bicarb soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 3 cups (450g) rolled oats
    • 2 cups chopped pecans

    Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C.
    2. Cream butter or margarine with mixer. Blend in whole eggs, sugar and essence. Add flour, bicarb soda and salt. When the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, add oats and pecans. Mix on lower speed until consistent.
    3. Drop pieces of the dough using an ice cream scoop onto an ungreased cookie tray roughly 10cm apart.
    4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Eight minutes would yield crispy biscuits with a chewy, slightly doughy center. For harder, crispier biscuits, bake longer. Cool on wire rack.

    Not too pretty to look at but tastes better than appearance lets on.  -  15 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I added extra banana extract for really yummy cookies. I got requests to make these again. Thanks!  -  25 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I have baked a lot of cookies over the years, but I have never had a cookie fall apart like these did.. They taste good, but most of them ended up a pile of crumbs. Maybe it needs more flour? I guess I will try one of the other recipes.  -  03 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
