Banana Bread Oatmeal Cookies

Thanks to Gina yet again for an awesome idea!!

1pt+ each? HECK YES!!!

Banana Bread Oatmeal Cookies
(Adapted from skinnytaste)

1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (+MORE!)
2 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup unpacked brown sugar
1 large egg
1 mashed ripe banana
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups oats

Preheat oven to 350°; line two baking sheets with parchment paper or use a silpat.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
In a large bowl, with a mixer, cream together the butter and the sugars on medium speed.  (I did this by hand...just in case I wanted to use my KitchenAid for something else!)
Add the egg, followed by the mashed banana and vanilla extract.
Working by hand, stir in the flour mixture and the oats until just combined and no streaks of flour remain; stir in the chopped walnuts.
Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of the dough onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until cookies become light brown at the edges.
Let cool on baking sheet for 3 or 4 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. 
Store in an airtight container so you don't eat them all in one sitting!
