Two weekends ago I had some ripe bananas leftover and I wanted to do something with them instead of throwing them in the garbage. I also didnt want to put them in the freezer because that would just take up unnecessary space. So I racked my brain. I considered banana bread but I didnt want to elongate the process and then I thought cookies? I did a quick Google search and found you can make cookies with bananas, oil and oatmeal. I noted the measurements and off to the kitchen I went. When there I decided to improvise by adding in some chopped up raisins and some mini chocolate chips that I had in the cabinet for some added pizzazz. They actually turned out REALLY good and surprisingly my boyfriend LOVED them (and hes not an oatmeal cookie fan in the least). I shared these with my mom since I ended up with 32 cookies and she enjoyed them as well and was surprised when I told her what went into them. If youre interested in trying these out for yourself, heres the recipe:
2 cups quick cook oats
3 ripe bananas
1/3 cup diced/chopped raisins
1/3 cup vegetable oil
¼ cup mini chocolate chips
Mash your bananas in a bowl, add in your oatmeal, raisins and chocolate chips, then add in your oil and mix to combine. If it looks a little too dry add in a tablespoon or two of water and combine. Then evenly distribute your mixture onto a (greased) cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for roughly 20 minutes or until golden.
Have you ever made cookies with bananas in them?
