Today’s recipe comes from Satan. No really, check it out. It’s pretty trendy to go vegan these days, but I am surprised to see that even the devil himself has gone veg. I should be even more surprised that he bakes – and cookies? You’d think he’d bake something like molten lava cakes or chocolate sin cake, but nope. He makes oatmeal cookies.
This is a useful recipe. You can file it under “ways to use up rotten bananas”. In this case, the banana takes the place of the eggs, so if you know someone with an egg allergy, you can bake him a batch of these. The texture is good — kind of cakey, but still yummy. They’re a little on the sweet side, so you might want to add some toasted pecans (like I did) to tone down the sugar. Don’t cut down the amount of sugar, because that will mess up the fine balance of ingredients in Satan’s cookie. Also, I noticed Satan adds a little water at the end because his dough is dry. That must be because he’s cooking in Hell. My dough was perfectly moist without it.
I added Ghirardelli chocolate chips.
