Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I love bananas, but I can never eat them fast enough, they always turn brown. I don’t mind though because then I have an excuse to bake. I usually make banana bread or banana cinnamon chip cake, but I recently made banana chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and now I am hooked. They are delicious! The banana keeps the cookies moist and soft and you can’t go wrong by adding in chocolate chips. Wrap a few of these up and deliver to a friend or neighbor that needs a sweet treat in their life. They will love you forever!

If you are looking for a new banana recipe, give these cookies a try. Oh and a little tip-keep brown bananas in the freezer, so you can bake banana treats anytime. Just peel the bananas and put them in a freezer bag. Then you can have super ripe bananas whenever you need them for these delicious cookies. Defrost before using in recipes. Enjoy!

Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 large banana, mashed
1 ¼ cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set that bowl aside for a minute.

In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and sugars,  and mix until smooth. Add in the vanilla extract and the egg. Next, add the banana. Beat together well.

Slowly add in the flour mixture until it’s just combined. Stir in the oats and the chocolate chips.

Drop the cookie dough by heaping tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto baking sheets. Make sure that your baking sheets have been lined with parchment paper or Silcone baking mats. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Remove cookies from pans; cool completely on wire racks.

Makes 2 1/2 dozen cookies
