These Banana Bread Nutmeg Cookies are so soft, so full of banana and nutmeg flavor and such a change from a normal cookie, that they’re just special. Special little cookies that taste just like banana bread.
I haven’t participated in thein awhile, and I noticed that their theme today was Banana and Nutmeg, and I thought “Oh! I have a recipe that fits that theme….” and decided I’d post it. Except I forgot to contact her ahead of time to let her know because I suck like that. I can barely remember what day of the week it is, let alone to email someone. haha It’s my fault, maybe next month I’ll do better. At any rate, I’m posting them because I needed a post today and these have been patiently waiting and they were so good you have to see them/try them. So just pretend I’m participating in the Improv Challenge. hehe Even though I guess I’m not.
A couple of notes about these cookies: These make about 3 dozen cookies, so we divided up the dough into thirds. The first batch we did was Banana Bread Nutmeg Cookies with walnuts. The second batch we made was Banana Bread Nutmeg Cookies with chocolate chips and walnuts. The last dozen we made were Banana Bread Nutmeg Cookies with chocolate chips.
I cannot even tell you which ones were better. They were all so delicious in their own way, and I recommend you trying it the same way. Banana Bread Nutmeg Cookies are great by themselves, but add in a few mix ins and you’ve more than taken it to the next level.
We made these as one of our new cookies to give as gifts for Christmas but we liked them so much, that we’ve made them a few more times with different add ins since then, macadamia nuts, white chocolate chips, raisins (a kids suggestion and I did not enjoy them!), dried banana and coconut.
