Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

The recipe for these cookies is from Health magazine, once again by celebrity chef Bethenny Frankel. I brought them to a playdate today, and all the kids AND adults loved them. Plus, no wheat, no dairy, no butter, no eggs.

1 cuo oat flour
3/4 cups rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup raw sugar
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup plain soy milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 ripe banana, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (or other nut)
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl. Whisk together oil, soy milk, and vanilla in a separate bowl and stir to combine with dry ingredients. Fold in banana, nuts and chocolate.

Line a baking sheet with parchment. Spoon dough onto pan. (20-24 cookies)

Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown, turning baking sheet halfway through. Cool on wire rack.

Note: instead of using bananas, walnuts and chocolate, you could try raisins and a pinch of cinnamon; or dried blueberries; or dried cranberries with 1/2 tsp orange extract; or slivered almonds and 1/2 tsp almond extract.
