Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Serves: 12
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 very ripe banana, mashed
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. In the bowl of your mixer combine the egg, banana, butter, sugar, vanilla, and mix on medium speed until well combined. I usually don't like crunchy granulated sugar in my cookies so I beat this mixture until the sugar is dissolved completely.
  2. Add the oats, flour, baking soda, salt, and mix on low speed until just combined, about 1 minute, then add the chocolate chips and mix for another 30 seconds or so.
  3. Using a medium cookie scoop, form approximately 12 equal-sized mounds of dough and place them on a cookie sheet lined up with parchment paper.
  4. Preheat oven to 350° F / 175° C and bake them for 11 to 13 minutes. Do not overcook, though they seem very soft when taken out of the oven, cookies will firm up as they cool.
  5. Enjoy!
