Ingredients

  • 1 ripe banana between 4 and 5 oz
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar or 1/2 cup tightly packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil or any other vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups quick-cooking not instant oatmeal or rolled oats**
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or Brazil Nuts
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Put the banana in a mixing bowl and beat it until it is completely mashed. Add the sugar and beat until smooth, then beat in the coconut oil and vanilla.
  • Mix the flour, baking soda and salt together in a bowl.
  • Add flour mixture to banana mixture and stir until blended, then stir in oats and nuts.
  • Chill the dough for about an hour or until it is easy to scoop and you can shape it into balls.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Spoon up tablespoons of dough and shape into balls.
  • Arrange 2 inches apart on baking sheets, press balls down slightly, and bake for about 10 minutes or until cookies appear set.
  • Remove from baking sheet and let cool completely. Transfer to the freezer and let the cookies get very cold.
  • Microwave the chocolate chips on high, stirring every 30 seconds. If you'd like a softer, shinier, chocolate, coat them in a small bit of coconut oil before melting.
  • Drizzle the melted chips over the cookies, then put on a parchment lined plate and freeze until chocolate is set.

Notes

I used rolled oats, but quick oats make the cookies taste less "healthy" if you know what I mean.
