Bananaoatchoco Cookies for All

G'morning lovies (I guess its afternoon now, I have beent trying to post this since 9am - ooph!) The treats that I made last night are still top of mind so I had to share them ASAP.  These babies are unreal. A combo of a recipe from Tina and Gina's (O hey rhyming), they really hit the spot!

D came over last night for Pretty Little Liars and left over Proscuitto Pineapple Pizza.  Is anyone else traumatized by PLL? I had to watch an episode of Sex and the City after because I was to scared and it was too close to bed time. Apparently I am 4. No shame. ABC Family decided to really fighten the crap out of its 11-14 year old girls audience with this one. I do not hate it.

Either way, another amazing dinner out on the balcony (one of these days its going to rain and I am going to be devastated) and two dozen cookies later, here is the amazing Bananaoatchoco Cookie recipe!

1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup of quick oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 ripe banana
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter (These would be equally good and healthier with 1/2 cup of apple sauce instead but I didn't have any in the apartment)
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1 egg

1) With an electric mixer mix sugar and butter until light and fluffy
2) Add all remaining ingredients and mix, on low, with electric mixer.  If you go to high its going to look like you had a flour fight... all over your kitchen
3) Scoop onto a pam-ed tin-foiled pan in tablespoon sized portions.
4) Bake for 7 to 9 minutes on 350 Degrees F
5) Enjoy!

These cookies are pretty  Only suggestion that I would have is to make sure to add a pinch of cinnamon as well. I forgot them and they were still delicious but 1/2 tsp of cinnamon would have really brought them over the edge.

How ooey gooey do these look?

Assuming cinnamon is included, I would starfabulusly rate them an 8/10. Gooey, sweet- but not too sweet- and anything involving chocolate and oatmeal in cookie form is a given.

Star Fabulous Rating: 8/10


  1. Oo I enjoy these!

    I have never seen that movie before. Should I?

  2. Pretty Little Liars? Its a TV show on ABC Family and yes you should totally see it! Its such a great guilty pleasure!

  3. These look delicious. I might have to try making them this weekend.

    I have yet to see an episode of Pretty Little Liars, but everyone recommends it, so maybe some quality time with Hulu is in order.

  4. O yes! Some quality time is much needed!
