Banana, Oats and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yes, I was thinking about posting a weekly menu, but then at the last moment I couldn't resist sharing this cookie recipe with you. Have a look at the photo... I am practicing my 'food photography' skills!

Once again I found myself with one very ripe banana.
Only one.

I decided that this one banana will be used in cookies.
Banana and Oats cookies seemed like a good idea, although the recipe called for two bananas.
One worked fine. Of course one mustn't forget the chocolate chips!

It was a hit with the kids and grown ups alike, and very easy to make. In fact, Heidi did most of the work ;-)

Here is a link to the original recipe and here is a copy of it, converted to metric measurements:


227 gram porridge oats
2 ripe bananas (I used only one)
227 gram brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
113 gram margarine
1 beaten egg
(optional - 28 gram dark chocolate chips)

Mix dried ingredients together.
Mash the banana.

The bananas form PART of the 227 gram of sugar, they aren't in addition to it! So you place the 2 bananas on the scales and then make up the weight to 227 gram with brown sugar. (I used only one banana so I had to use a little more sugar)

Melt margarine in a saucepan and add to dry mix. Blend thoroughly.

Use a teaspoon to drop walnut size blobs onto a greased baking tray (I use greased greaseproof paper as well), allowing space for cookies to run. Bake in middle of moderate oven (190 Celsius) for 20-30 minutes until golden brown.
