Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

13 Jan

This recipe is a favorite  in my family.  It is a much  healthier cookie made  with no eggs or dairy and using Instant Oats.  The banana replaces the eggs and adds a delicious hint of banana flavor to the cookie!  You can freeze 1/2 the batch for future use.  Just roll out the dough into a log,  and  place in a container to freeze.  When you are ready to use it,  thaw the cookie dough, slice and bake!

  • 1 cup of margarine
  • 1 cup sugar in the raw
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 banana mashed
  • 2 1/2 cups unbleached white flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups Instant oats
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • Cream the margarine and sugars until fluffy.  Add the mashed banana and mix well. 
  • Add the sifted flour, baking soda and salt stirring into the margarine mixture.
  • Add the Oats and chocolate chips to the mixture.
  • Drop from a teaspoon approximately 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet or lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake at 375 for 10 minutes or until slightly browned.
  • Remove and cool on a cooling rack.

        We tried them out and they turned out good! I used butter instead of margarine and the dough was a little dry. Next time I will add less flour or more banana. The funny thing (or ironic) is that my son didn’t seem to like them that much. I think it was the chocolate chips of all things!! I thought the hint of banana was just right and great! My daughter loved them and mourned the fact that I put half the batch in the freezer to enjoy later….

    Glad you enjoyed them! Freezing for the future is great when you get a craving and do not want to go through the whole process.
