• 1 banana (mashed, or unsweetened applesauce.)
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 1/2 cups light brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine banana (or applesauce), molasses, brown sugar, oil, and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Beat until well combined. Add dry ingredients, beating again until well combined.
  Drop by heaping tablespoonful onto a large, ungreased baking sheet. Bake for approximately 10 minutes, until the tops of the cookies are well crackled and just slightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool. Makes about 34 cookies.


In 2002, I was dreaming of creating a fun and happy little event to sell my vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, I held my first event in my neighbor's barn along with a handful of friends. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today The Farm Chicks Vintage & Handmade Fair fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces packed with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best event of its kind in the USA. I describe it as the best weekend of the year!
