Lime Oatmeal Cookies

I love limes and I love oatmeal….so here is a good way to have both.


  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup mashed banana
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1  1/2 tsp. lime zest
  • 1 cup pastry flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1  1/2 cups rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup chopped candied ginger
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream the butter and egg together until smooth. Gradually add in the banana, vanilla and brown sugar. Add the lime zest and mix well on low speed in your mixer until all the ingredients are thoroughly blended.

In a large bowl, sift the flour, salt, baking powder, oatmeal, nuts and chocolate chips and  use a whisk to combine the ingredients completely.  Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until there is no dryness.

Using a parchment line cookie sheet, drop by heaping tablespoons, 2 inches apart, and with a dampened finger, press the top lightly to flatten. Bake for 20 minutes until lightly browned and then cool on a wire rack.

All I can say is YUMMY…..
