I am breastfeeding two little ones, so I am hungry all the time!
These cookies are my best friend because they are the only go-to snack that really fills me up and satisfies me!
When I do not have these cookies in the house, I feel lost without them!
If you do not like banana, you can substitute 1/2 cup of pureed blueberries.
Or you can make these without any fruit at all and they would still be just as tasty!
1 Stick and 6 Tablespoons of Butter
1/4 Cup of Sugar
1/2 Cup of Brown Sugar
2 Teaspoons of Vanilla
3 Ripened Bananas
1-1/2 Cups of Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
4-5 Cups of Oatmeal
1 Cup of Chocolate Chips (I prefer the mini chocolate chips!)
Preheat oven to 325.
Melt butter in Microwave.
Add it to a large bowl.
Add the next 4 ingredients and mix well.
Peel Bananas and place them onto a Plate.
Smash Bananas with a Fork.
Add Bananas to the mixture.
Add Flour and Baking Soda.
*If mixture seems to soft after 4 cups of oatmeal, add an additional cup.
(You can test this by balling up some of the mixture into your hand as though you are about to place it onto a cookie sheet and if it falls apart easily, add more oatmeal)
Add Chocolate Chips.
Form into Balls onto Cookie Sheets and then lightly smash each one down with the palm of your hand.
Put into the oven for 10-14 minutes (or until cookies are lightly brown at the bottom)
Cookies will appear mushy on top due to the banana.
After they cool, they will be a little more firm.
Store cookies in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
