Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Banana Chip Cookies







Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Banana Chip Cookies

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups quick oats, uncooked
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup finely mashed ripe banana
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup finely chopped dried banana chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt; stir in oats until combined.
In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter, brown sugar and banana until creamy, about 1 minute; beat in egg and vanilla extract until just combined. Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips and banana chips by hand until combined.

Drop heaping teaspoons of dough onto cookie sheets; bake for 9-10 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Cool for 1 minute before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes 18 cookies

    i think the microphone is kinda weird too - but at least they thank you for voting, i guess!

    these sound so good! i think i would dunk them in milk and peanut butter, and probably end up eating waaay too many of them!!!!

  8. Start packing...I'm impressed that you had a bag of banana chips and didn't nibble away on them. I never have enough left to bake with.

    Yummy cookies!

  9. yummy ... these look incredible. i have everything I need too. in fact, i have enough bananas to make about 50 batches of these. that would be very very bad.

  10. You're right girl, Otis has nothin' on you. Especially since Otis is often packaged and then just reheated in a little toaster oven. Here your cookies are, warm, gooey, fresh....Otis could never compete with the likes of you! Good luck tonight and enjoy your Everclear. Girl, you know how to party! That would put me under the table!

  25. I've so got to try these cookies and everclear. Wiki says its like 190 proof and supposedly isn't as likely to leave a hangover because of lack of congeners.

  26. Those cookies look freaking amazing. Hands down one of the best things I've seen on here! Totally my own opinion, but still...

    And Good Luck!

  43. Hi Emily,

    I found your blog thru Lauren's Bite (yes I am Twilight Obsessed) But I am also Food Obsessed...so I got hooked on your blog as well! It is so fun and cute! Alright, well I finally had a week off of work and time to cook- so I picked this cookie recipe because I LOVE all of the ingrediants. Well I tried it out and I AM IN LOVE!! So good! I put the dough in mini muffins pans, so the cookies are bite size....so perfect! Just wanted to let you know I love your blog and now I am in love with your cookies...Can't wait to see you on the Bravo oatmeal challenge (TOP CHEF is one of my favorite shows) I voted for you a ton!! Can't wait to see all the other exciting things you'll come up with!

  47. Yum, yum, yum and thank you! I baked those this weekend (leaving out the banana chips that I did not have) and people loved them, especially the not-so-loving-cookies people who thought they were great "adult cookies". These were the highlight of a picnic in Central Park yesterday so you get the credit for it!!
