> > Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies

Recipe Background

I came up with this recipe for Banana Cookies when I was trying to find a new way to use up ripe bananas. These are soft chewy cookies that got a double thumbs up from my kids and my neighbor Damaris who not only let me borrow some ingredients but also helped taste test!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies

¾ cup softened unsalted butter (1 ½ sticks)
1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
½ cup granulated sugar
2 eggs, beaten well
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups old fashioned oats (not instant)
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large mixing bowl, cream together softened butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and mix. Stir in mashed bananas. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt and then stir this into the creamed mixture. Stir in oats, chocolate chips, and walnuts. Drop by heaping spoonfuls (about a Tablespoon) onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake for 13-16 minutes (15 minutes is about right in my oven). Makes 55-60 cookies.
