Banana Chocolate Chunk Cookies

We pulled this recipe from Martha Stewart Living, the August issue.  The kids thought these were unbelievable.  We sort of played with this recipe Bananawhich is below.

1 cup flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 t. kosher salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar (that is what we had but it calls for light brown which I’d use next time)
2 t. vanilla
1 cup mashed ripe banana
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
11.5 ounces of semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375.  Whisk together the flours, salt and baking soda in a small bowl.  Beat the butter and sugars in an electric mixer until fluffy.  Add egg and vanilla, mix again.  Mix in banana.  Mix in flour mixture.  Stir in oats and chocolate chunks. 

Put cookies on parchment lined cookie sheets.  Bake for about 10-12 minutes.  Yum.

    Shame on you. Blogs should not be fattening. Excellent cookie recipie. I may force my 88 year old mother to make them today when I go up to her house to take her shopping.
