Banana Oatmeal Cookies

I got this from a friend at my old work and made them a ton because we always seem to have ripe bananas.

2 extra-ripe bananas
1/2 C oil, or margarine
3/4 C brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1 3/4 C quick- cooking oats
1 1/2 C all purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 C craisins
1 C chopped nuts (I don't use these)

Beat oil or magarine and sugar. Beat in egg, then add mashed bananas. Combine dry ingredient; stir into banana mixture just until blended. Stir in craisins and nuts. Drop by tablespoonfunl 2 inches apart onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake in 350 degree oven for 15-18 minutes until lightly browned. Cool. Makes 3 1/2 to 4 dozen cookies.
