Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies

These cookies and moist and delicious and the addition of the whole wheat flour and whole grain oats makes them healthier than most. Plus they are a perfect way to use those frozen bananas you might have sitting in your freezer.  You can vary the recipe by adding 1/2 cup of chopped nuts if you wish.

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add the butter and blend until the mixture is crumbly. Next add the egg, vanilla and bananas and combine until smooth. Last, fold in the oats and chocolate chips. Drop spoonfuls of the dough onto the cookie sheet and place on the middle rack in your oven. Bake for 12 minutes until the edges are browned. Remove from the oven and allow cookies to cool

About Theresa Toth, Easy Peasy Eats

I have been cooking almost my entire life. My passion for food and feeding people has always had a special place in my life and in my twenties I combined my two loves—entertaining and cooking—into a successful catering business. Becoming a parent presented me with the challenge of creating new ways to provide the meals my family deserved with the limited time I had in the kitchen. I started developing new recipes that were much less time consuming but still delicious and nutritious. That’s how Easy Peasy Eats was born!
