Oatmeal Banana Raisin Coconut Cookies/ Coventry Walk Cookies

I really call these Coventry Walk Cookies, as this recipe came from my Mom's friend at the quilting group Mom attends every Monday.
This recipe Mom's friend found at Allrecipes submitted by Madamerambo.
Here is the prep.

Here is the baked cookie
The recipe makes dozens of cookies and best of all lots of goodness in the cookie for children to enjoy.Changed it slightly using butter not margarine and increased the vanilla and spices. Decreased the baking time so they did not scorch.
1 1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp.salt
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cloves
3 cups rolled oats
2 ripe bananas sliced
1 1/2 cups raisins
1 cup flaked coconut
Preheat oven to 375.
Grease cookies sheets
In large bowl cream butter and sugars.
Beat in vanilla and egg.
Combine flour, soda, salt and spices.
Stir into creamed mixture.
Stir in oats, bananas, raisins and coconut , one at a time.
Drop by rounded spoonfuls 2 inches apart as these cookies spread. Bake 11 to 13 minutes tho my oven I baked mine for only 10 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute before removing to wire rack to cool.These cookies are soft and spread out. Layer wax paper between layers in your cookie tin.

Just made these and they are deeeeeeeelicious!! Quite soft and cakey in texture. Didn't have cloves, so used allspice instead (kind of along the lines of a carrot cake, I suppose!). The batch was quite large, so you could really halve the ingredients.

These were a great hit with everyone - even those who don't normally eat raisins! Will definiately make them again.
