Banana Nugget Cookies

Another great way to use up those bananas turing brown on your countertop!  My mother used to make these for my sister and I when we were little.  This recipe is adapted from Marjorie Standish -Cooking Downeast.

They look almost the same after they bake! 
Banana Nugget Cookies

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
