I’ve got another banana recipe. Maybe the best one yet.
Have I mentioned that we grow lots and lots of bananas around here?
Ok. Just check’n.
This is actually a recipe that I shared way back.
But since I just made these again….and fell in love with them again….I thought they were worthy of a fresh post.
These low fat oatmeal banana cookies are brilliant on many levels:
Whole wheat flour, check.
Bananas, YES please–the more the merrier.
Agave nectar, such a great choice.
And chocolate chips-obviously a winner.
It’s a simple recipe, and your whole family will LOVE these!
Lowfat Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Lowfat Oatmeal Banana Chocolate chip Cookies
- 1. cup whole wheat flour.
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 2 T. butter.
- 1/3 c.agave nectar
- 1/2 c. brown sugar unpacked.
- 1 egg
- 3/4 to 1 cup mashed banana I say the more the better. *we used apple-bananas.
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 cups oats
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar with a mixer. Add egg, followed by the mashed banana, agave nectar, and vanilla.
Working by hand, stir in the flour mixture, and the oats until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips (I think carob would be great here too. My family disagrees.)
DROP heaping tablespoons of the dough onto baking sheets. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are light brown at the edges.
Pour a cup of cold milk….Dunk…
It doesn’t get much better than this, does it?
