I don’t like banana. Will I like these banana oatmeal chocolate chip cookies?
I stumbled upon a recipe for these cookies, tweaked it a little, and love the outcome! My banana oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are made with bananas, but the taste isn’t too banana-y, and the sweetness level is perfect.
I wouldn’t say there’s NO banana flavor but it’s isn’t so prominent that you can’t enjoy these if you aren’t a big fan. There’s a lot of other flavors going on and they’re such a delicious sweet treat I think it’s worth a try!
How to Make Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies:
Preheat oven to 325
1. Mash the bananas with a fork. I tried to do them with my mixer, but they didn’t get as mushy as I wanted. The fork works well.
2. Add everything but the chocolate chips to the bowl and mix for 1 minute.
3. Add chocolate chips and stir by hand.
4. Drop large spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet, you should get about 8 cookies per batch.
5. Cook for 18-22 minutes. It’s not easy to tell when they’re done because they’re so dark. I poke them and see if they fall apart. If they start to come apart, give them a few more minutes.
6. Remove and cool, store in the fridge.
