Banana Apple Oatmeal Cookies

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 3/4 cups oatmeal
1 cup mashed bananas (2-3 bananas)
1/2 cup nuts
1 apple, grated

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. Reserve in a medium bowl.

Cream together the butter, sugar and egg in a separate small bowl. Blend the creamed butter mixture into the medium bowl with the dry ingredients. Add the oatmeal, mashed banana, nuts, and grated apple and fold together. This batter is like a muffin batter and with muffin batters you just blend until mixed, do not over beat the mixture.

Drop a scoop of batter onto a greased cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees F for about 15 minutes. Cool and store in a plastic container, or cover with a clean dish towel to maintain a more "muffin like" top crust.
