Forget Yum-O: These Cookies Are Rum-O!

The other day I posted a recipe for Banana Peanut Butter Cookies and noticed that there was just a bit of rum in that recipe. Rum and bananas pair really well together, so I wondered what other rum/banana creations I could find. I then came across these Banana Rum Coconut Cookies that are a little bit hearty and a lot tasty. To get the recipe,


Banana Rum Coconut Cookies
From Cooking Light, April 2006

2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup ripe mashed banana (about 1 medium)
1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 teaspoon rum
3/4 cup all-purpose flour (about 3 1/3 ounces)
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup flaked sweetened coconut
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Dash of ground ginger

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Place first 4 ingredients in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until blended. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife.
  3. Combine flour and remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Stir flour mixture into banana mixture.
  4. Drop dough by 2 tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
  5. Bake at 350° for 19 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pan; cool completely on a wire rack.

20 cookies (serving size: 1 cookie)

The mayo is a little strange... maybe it makes them moist, which is fine by me!

Mayonnaise?? That's odd to me...plus I hate it. I wonder if I could make them without using it... Plus I'd ditch the raisins. But other than that, they sound different and pretty tasty.

Rum in anything makes me happy.. but looking in the ingredients.. is one tsp really enough to give them flavour?
