Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies 

A great way to use up that last banana – double this batch for extras as it only makes about 30 cookies!

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 very very ripe banana
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1-1/2 cups oatmeal (old-fashioned or quick, not instant)
1 cup chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350. Melt butter in a small dish in microwave, about 20 seconds. Transfer to mixing bowl. Mix in sugars, banana, egg and vanilla.

2. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking power, baking soda and salt. Add the bowl of dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients and mix until well combined. Stir in oatmeal and chocolate chips.

3. Drop dough by tablespoons onto a baking sheet.  Bake for 11 – 14 minutes until set and golden. Cool 5 minutes on tray, then transfer to cooling racks.
