Carrot Cake Cookies

The original recipe for these cookies included sultanas.   I left the sultanas out and sprinkled the tops with chopped pecan nuts instead.

We eat so many bananas in our household and I buy many bunches a week but we still have difficulty leaving them to go really ripe (the more black spots the better) so when this recipe called for mashed banana and mine weren’t particularly ripe, I decided to grate them along with the apple and carrots in my food processor.  216 more words
