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


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set that bowl aside for a minute.
  2. 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.
  3. Slowly add in the flour mixture until it’s just combined. Stir in the oats and the chocolate chips.
  4. 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.
