Banana Biscuits

Banana Biscuits

It has been so hot in Melbourne lately that bananas are ripening really quickly.
Nobody at my house eats mushy bananas, so they usually get made into banana bread or cake. Banana biscuits look really lumpy and bumpy, but never judge a book by its cover, they taste great.

3 mushy bananas
125gm butter
1 C brown sugar (you can use white sugar, but brown sugar gives these a more caramel-y taste)
1 and a half Cups self raising flour
1/2 C coconut
1/2 C rolled oats

Cream the butter and sugar together and then beat in the mashed banana.

Fold in the flour using a metal spoon, then mix in the coconut and rolled oats.

Drop teaspoon sized balls of mixture onto the tray (I tried to swirl the mixture to flatten the biscuits a bit, but they remained lumpy looking).

Bake at 180.C for approximately 12 to 15 minutes. Let the biscuits cool on the tray for a few minutes before moving to a wire rack.

Makes about 40 biscuits
