Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Banana CookiesPosted: March 2, 2012 | |
Is there anything better than a warm cookie with a cold glass of milk?
I love the addition of mashed banana to these as it adds a bit of muffin like density and the perfect light sweetness. This cookie passed the true test when my 6 year old friend Bryley Pearl proclaimed: “the best cookie I’ve ever had!”
And with oatmeal and banana, who says these can’t be eaten for breakfast? Healthier than a donut, that’s for sure, and quite delicious with a large cup of coffee.
Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Banana Cookies:
- 1 egg
- ½ stick butter
- ½ cups white sugar
- ½ cups brown sugar
- 1-½ teaspoon vanilla
- 1-½ cup all purpose flour
- ½ teaspoons baking soda
- 1 banana, mashed
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream together the egg, butter, vanilla and two sugars. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix well. Add mashed banana, oats, and mini chocolate chips. Mix well, making sure there are no lumps. May seem a bit dry, but just keep mixing!
Form small balls of dough and place on a non-stick cookie sheet.
Bake 12-13 minutes. Let cook for 5 minutes.
