1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
3/4 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 med. very ripe banana, mashed
1 egg, at room temperature
1/2 cup dried cherries
1 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease 1 or 2 baking sheets. In a bowl, stir together the flour, oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In a large bowl, cream the brown sugar and butter until fluffy. Add the banana and egg and beat with a fork until blended. Stir in the flour mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time, and then stir in the cherries, chocolate and walnuts.
Spoon the dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing the cookies about 2 inches apart. Bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool on on a rack for about 5 minutes.
Makes about 18 cookies.
