Not sure where I originally got this, but it's delicious! I'm not a big banana lover, but the flavor works well in this cookie and you can either make regular sized cookies or large cookies to make an ice cream sundae with. They are moist.
- 1 cup margarine, room temperature
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 1⁄2 cups ripe bananas, mashed (about 4 medium)
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 1⁄2 cups rolled oats
- 2 cups whole wheat flour or 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- vanilla ice cream
- chocolate fudge topping
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Beat margarine and sugar in bowl until creamy.
- Add bananas, eggs and vanilla; beat well.
- In another bowl, combine oats, flour, baking soda, salt and chocolate chips.
- Add to banana mix. Mix well.
- Drop by 1/4 cupfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet, 3 inches apart.
- Spread dough into 3 inch (or more) circles.
- Bake at 350°F 14 to 16 minutes, until edges are light golden color.
- Cool 1 min on sheet; remove to wire rack and cool completely.
- Store loosely covered at room temperature.
- Top with ice cream and topping.
The cookies are easy to whip up but kind of bland for our tastes. We then added ice cream - vanilla for me and chocolate for DH. We sliced a banana and poured strawberry jam and chocolate sauce on it...yummy!!
These were great! Such a clever idea to give a new twist to a classic dessert. I used white whole wheat flour and it comes out much more tender than regular whole wheat and is just as healthy. Also used 1 egg and 1/4 cup Eggbeaters, and 1/2 cup of Splenda brown sugar substitute. Fabulous! Thanks for sharing!
Oh my.... these were HUGE and delicious. They really did taste like a banana split. I'm going to take some to work tomorrow for my co-workers minus the ice cream and hot fudge of course. LOL These are sure to be a big hit.
