July 5, 2014

Another great way to use overripe bananas.  This is a tasty little cookie.  The bananas make it very moist and delicious.

001

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

1 cup flour

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. baking soda

Whisk together flours, salt and baking soda in a small bowl.  Set aside.

003 (2)

3/4 cup ( 1  1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

Beat butter and sugars until fluffy.

004

1 large egg

1 1/2 vanilla extract

Reduce speed to low.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Mix until combined.

005

1/2 cup ripe banana (or a little more) – mashed.  I didn’t measure – I used 2 very ripe medium bananas.

Mix in mashed banana.

Add flour mixture.  Mix until just combined.  (If you are adding more than the 1/2 cup of banana, like I did, add a spoonful or 2 of extra flour).

006

1 cup rolled oats, regular or instant

8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup nuts (optional)

Stir in oats, chocolate chips and nuts. (I didn’t add nuts.)

007

Scoop rounded teaspoons onto a cookie sheet.

008

Bake cookies 12 – 13 minutes.

Let cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes and then cool completely on a wire rack.
