Muffin Top Cookies~Banana Nut




Everyone knows the best part of the muffin is the top, some company was even smart enough to make a pan that JUST makes muffin tops. I don't have one of those, so I made some changes to my regular Banana Nut Bread recipe to try it out cookie style! Turned out amazing, the kids LOVE them!

Ingredients
1/2 C softened butter
1C Sugar
1/4C Brown Sugar
1 egg
1 egg white
1 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp Baking Soda
3 ripe bananas
1 1/4 C AP flour
1 C Oat Flour (or whole wheat, whatever you have I am sure will work)
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice (or you can do clove and nutmeg, whatever you have)
1C (or more if you like) Chopped Walnuts

~Directions~

Preheat Oven to 350*
Line Cookie Sheet with Parchment Paper (if you have it, I did mine without and they turned out just fine)

Combine butter and sugars well, until fluffy.
Mix in egg and white to mixture, and vanilla

In a seperate bowl
Mash bananas
Sprinkle baking soda over them
let sit while you mix dry ingredients

In another bowl
Combine Flours, salt and spices.

Combine bananas with sugar and butter mixture until well combined.
Then add flour mixture.
Once combined fold in nuts.

 I used a cookie scoop to drop them on the cookie sheet in little circles, I did 8 at a time because I wasn't sure how much they would spread.
bake for about 14 minutes, let cool before transfering.


They are SO good! The kids love them and they ARE just like the muffin tops!  Hoping there will be some left after our visitors today so I can freeze them! If they freeze well, I'll let y'all know!
