12 Days of Cookies! Day 2: Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip

My friend Sarah is an amazing baker! She truly works wonders in the kitchen. The first time I had these cookies I had inhaled 3 without blinking. These cookies are just wonderful and I was very grateful that she shared the recipe with me. Be forewarned, this is a very sticky dough!!!!

Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

4 tbsp butter, room temperature
½ cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 large egg
1 large banana, mashed
1 ¼ cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1. In a medium bowl whisk together: flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside
2. In a large mixing bowl combine sugars and butter, mix until smooth. Add in vanilla extract and egg. Next add banana and mix well.
3. Slowly add the flour mixture until just combined. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips.

P.S. Today is a friend’s birthday, and she asked me a month in advance to bake these for her today. Happy Birthday Abigail!!!
