Oatmeal Almond Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies
Adapted from PBFingers

There’s quite a bit going on in these cookies. Banana ends up being the main flavor, with the almond butter and chocolate chips playing more supportive roles. The original recipe called for peanut butter, but almond butter (or any other nut butter) should work just as well. Since there’s not much flour and lots of oats, these cookies are deliciously chewy and wholesome. The cookies are delicate and a bit sticky, so be take care when handling and stacking. If you want them to be a little less sticky, you could add a bit more flour (1/4 cup more should do the job).

Makes about: 70 cookies
Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 10-12 minutes/batch

2 bananas
1/3 cup almond butter
1/3 cup canola oil
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
3 ¼ cup rolled oats
¼ cup whole wheat flour
1tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Special equipment
Parchment-lined cookie sheet

1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Mash bananas. I like using my hands.
3. Mix in oil and almond butter and stir until smooth.
4. Stir in egg, brown sugar, and vanilla.
5. Add in baking powder, baking soda, salt, oats, and flour.
6. Stir in chocolate chips.
7. Scoop by teaspoonfuls onto prepared parchment-lined pan. The batter is a bit wet, and the cookies will spread.
8. Bake 10-12 minutes.
