ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 2 T butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup mashed ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup diced banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • chocolate chips (optional)
  • Directions

    Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

    In a small bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

    In a large bowl, cream together the butter and the sugar. Beat in egg and banana, followed by the vanilla extract and cinnamon. By hand, add in the flour mixture. Stir in the oats and diced banana.

    Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet. Spread out dough into round, flat cookie shape with back of spoon. This is to ensure that cookies will have crispy edges and a soft middle.

    Bake for 12-14 minutes at 350F, until set and lightly browned.

    Let cookies cool for about 5 minutes on the pan before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Makes 2 dozen cookies.
