Ingredients

3/4 cup unsalted butter (, softened)

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup light brown sugar (, packed)

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 ripe bananas (, mashed)

2 cups all-purpose flour (, plus more if needed)

3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt ((see notes))

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup old-fashioned oats

1 to 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (, I prefer semi-sweet)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or baking mat.

Cream

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer. Mix in the egg and vanilla and stir until combined. Mix in bananas.

Mix in the flour, oats, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon until combined. Be careful not to over mix. If dough appears too sticky, add 1 to 2 Tablespoons (up to 1/4 cup) flour.

Fold in chocolate chips and refrigerate until ready to bake.

Bake

Scoop cookie dough about 2 inches apart onto baking sheet. Press in a few chocolate chips to the tops of the cookies. if desired. Bake 11 to 12 minutes, or until the bottoms are golden brown.

Serve

Let cool on pan 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Sprinkle with flake sea salt, if desired. Serve warm or cool.
