Who doesn't love cookies? I love a sweet treat but I also know it important to keep nutrition in mind. I found a recipe similar to this online but knew I could make it healthier.
banana chocolate chip cookies
4T unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2c brown sugar, packed
1/4c granulated sugar
1t Mexican vanilla
1 large banana, mashed
1 1/4c whole wheat flour
1t baking soda
2c gluten free oats
3/4c mini dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Combine flour, baking soda, salt & oats in a bowl.
Cream together butter and sugars with an electric mixer. Add vanilla and egg. Beat until smooth. Add banana and beat well again.
Slowly add flour mixture to wet ingredients and mix until combined. Add chocolate chips and mix.
Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. Drop heaping spoonfuls onto cookie sheets. Bake for 15 minutes until golden. Remove from oven and cook on wire rack.
Makes 2 dozen cookies.
