I love finding new ways to use bananas! The toasted walnuts are so tasty in these cookies. This recipe comes from MarthaStewart.com.
1 Cup All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup Whole-Wheat Flour
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
3/4 Cup Unsalted Butter, softened
1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 Cup Packed Light-Brown Sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup Mashed Ripe Banana (about 1 large)
1 Cup Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats
8 oz Semisweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Coarsely Chopped Walnuts, toasted
Preheat oven to 375°F. Line two baking sheets with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
Mix together the all-purpose and whole wheat flours, salt and baking soda in a bowl.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, add the butter and sugars. Mix on medium speed until combined. Add the egg, vanilla and banana. Continue mixing until combined. Slowly add the flour mixture, mixing until just combined. Mix in the oats, chocolate chips and walnuts on slow.
Using a cookie scoop, drop onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 12-13 minutes, turning halfway through. Cool on wire racks.
