Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350°.

3. In a large bowl, add flour, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt. Whisk until mixed thoroughly.
4. In another bowl cream butter and both sugars with hand mixer until light fluffy. Add egg, mashed banana, and vanilla extract and mix more. Then, pour in dry ingredients from other bowl. Be sure to not over mix.
5. Spoon out heaping tablespoons onto cookie sheet. Be sure to leave space for cookies to spread. This is where you can top the cookie with chocolate chips, etc. if you wish. Bake for about 15 minutes. Allow to cool before removing from pan.
