Banana Oat Biscuits (& photoshoot sneak peak!)

 This recipe is courtesy of Maria, my workmate's wife, who saved the day last week.

The radio station I work for, 96five, is doing a giveaway for the duration of the Ekka, of a "Mums In the Kitchen Showbag".  It includes an apron, oven mit, tea towel, shopping list, radio and Romeo the Radio Dog toy - pretty cool!  So, we had a photo shoot last week to showcase the showbag.

We were doing the shots with the oven...but had an empty tray!  Thankfully, Maria had sent her husband to work with some freshly-baked biscuits, so we were able to use them for the shoot :-)  They also taste great!

Tune in to 96five for your chance to win a Mums in the Kitchen Showbag!

150g butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup mashed ripe banana
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
3 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking trays.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Beat in egg and mashed banana, then stir in vanilla.

Combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and cloves; stir into the banana mixture. Mix in rolled oats and walnuts. 

Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto prepared trays. Leave room for spreading. 

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
