Units Scale
  • 12 Tbs . Butter softened (1 1/2 sticks)
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup White Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 cup Mashed Bananas (roughly 3 average size bananas)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Cloves
  • 3 cups Quick Cooking Oatmeal
  • 1 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1 1/2 cups Chocolate Chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare baking sheets by spraying them with non-stick cooking spray or by lining them with parchment paper.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugar and brown sugar.
  4. Beat in the egg and vanilla. 
  5. In a separate bowl, mash the bananas up with a fork. Mash them until they are still a bit chunky. Pour bananas into the creamed ingredients.
  6. Stir in the salt, soda, cinnamon, and cloves.
  7. Add the oatmeal, flour and chocolate chips.
  8. Let the mixed cookie dough stand for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes if the dough seems a bit to sticky add a little bit more flour. This dough is a stickier type, adding too much flour will result in tough and dry cookies.
  9. Drop cookie dough by Tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets.
  10. Bake for 10-12 minutes.


  • Old fashioned oats can be used but must be pulsed in a food processor or blender until it's the size of quick oats.
