Is that long enough of a name for ya? These are really good cookies. They have the chewiness of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with the taste of banana bread, and of course, you can't leave out the chocolate chips in my house. :) This would make a perfect Sunday afternoon snack, so enjoy!
Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 tablespoons dairy-free margarine, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup mashed banana (about 1 medium banana)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup GF flour blend
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups GF quick oats (if you just have rolled oats, pulse them a few times in a food processor)
3/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the margarine and the sugars. Add the egg, followed by the banana and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour blend, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture. Add in the oats and chocolate chips, mixing by hand.
Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes.
Let cool on the sheet for 5 minutes, then cool completely on a wire rack.
Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
