Garbage Cookies 2

A more descriptive name would be along the lines of banana almond apple cinnamon oatmeal sunflower seed granola cookies.

Garbage Cookies 2
1 cup salted butter, softened
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 bananas, mashed
24 almonds
3 packets Apple Cinnamon instant oatmeal
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup granola

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large bowl with a spatula, beat butter and brown sugar until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until well blended. Stir in vanilla.
3. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder. Add bananas, instant oatmeal, sunflower seeds, and granola.
4. Drop batter by heaping tablespoons or with a 1 ounce ice-cream scoop onto baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Press an almond into the center of each cookie. Bake until golden, about 16-18 minutes. Cool on pan, then remove to foil or plates and enjoy!
