Mos Eisley Morsels
I think these are named after Mos Eisley because the top of the morsels look dry and barren, like the city of Mos Eisley.
Similar to baking muffins, the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder, and spices) are mixed together in one bowl and the wet (banana, egg, vegetable oil, and vanilla) in another, and then the two are mixed together until just combined.
The batter is “poured” (scraped) into a greased baking dish and smoothed down so it’s somewhat flat. Don’t bother trying to make it perfectly flat – it’s not necessary.
The batter is then baked for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Once the “morsels” are somewhat cooled, you can cut them into squares and serve! (To be honest, we didn’t wait until they cooled at all and they were still good!)
Though I thought these were a little bit dry, the taste was quite good. They taste kind of like a cross between ginger cookies and banana bread. The spices in particular were nice in combination with the banana.
My husband doesn’t like banana bread, but he enjoyed these. He said it’s because the spices were strong enough to cover most of the banana flavor.
All you need to worry about is not overcooking these while they’re in the oven. Otherwise you’re pretty much just mixing everything together and pouring it into a baking dish.
You will need to purchase bananas, but the other ingredients are common items in most kitchens: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground cloves, egg, vegetable oil, and vanilla.
