oatmeal ; quick cooking
coarsely chopped walnuts ; optional

Blend in both flavorings , bananas and the oatmeal.
Sift together all the dry ingredients and gradually blend in with the creamed mixture ; Stir in the nuts ; optional.
Drop by tablespoons onto greased cookie sheet. ( I like to add some chopped nuts on top too just before baking )
