Today I want to chat about Kombucha. That is obviously entirely unrelated to these Banana Oatmeal Cookies, but I know you won't obey.
Let me start by stating that my husband drinks apple cider vinegar mixed with water every morning to decrease inflammation or anything like that.
He claims it's magical. I assert it's nasty.
While I know this will seem dramatic (because it is), I actually dry heave in the sight and smell of his morning ritual to a daily basis. He loves that about me.
Based upon this reaction, one would believe I would stay far away from Kombucha, right? I mean, after all, it definitely has a vinegary tang.
But for any reason, I continue trying it. I want to like it SO DANG BAD.
All these Banana Oatmeal Cookies are super simple to make and filled with banana flavor.
I'm really a marketer's dream because each and every time I see somebody I know loving a sip, or even realising their favourite brand and flavor using a boomerang on Instagram, I am all,"Perhaps you will actually taste acceptable!" .
Just imagine me using air quotes around the term appreciating cause I think it is hard to believe this stuff is actually enjoyable in any sense of the word.
And spoiler alert. Not one of them taste great. None.
Even the ones that people claim are light really are a big contraceptive for me personally. They taste like freaking sweet vinegar.
I am basically convinced that anybody who drinks this fermented tea stuff gets zero taste buds, or badly funky ones.
I've literally tried every single brand that my regional market conveys and that I HATED, maybe not overdone, HATED every single one.
Banana Oatmeal Cookies are soft, plump and studded with chocolate. Stir in walnuts or pecans for a little crunch!
Yes, I know hate is a really strong term, but there's actually no other way to describe my emotions towards kombucha. And I just had to tell y’all my true feelings on this one. Who's with me?
Believe me, I so want to take pleasure in the things because it apparently has a whole lot of health advantages, but I will be the girl sipping a La Croix and reserving vinegary tastes for salad dressing.
Let's completely switch gears. 1 thing I adore? Cookies.
From no bake biscuits and easy sugar cookies to those banana oatmeal biscuits, it's been a love affair that's gone on here at MBA for almost a decade now.
While I am not claiming these banana oatmeal cookies are the least wholesome (cause hello sugar and butter), I'm claiming that they are delicious.
They have the ideal amount of banana taste and a beautiful chewy texture thanks to the oats. The chocolate chips are only an additional bonus.
Banana Oatmeal Cookies are tender, plump and studded with chocolate. Sausage and dried cranberries Banana Oatmeal Cookies Recipe - Rachael Ray are also a perfect addition.
Everyone who attempted these banana oatmeal cookies believed they tasted a lot like banana bread, but obviously with an completely different texture. We dug it about here.
And in my opinion, they're great a great alternative to classic banana bread.
A Couple of NOTES ABOUT THESE BANANA OATMEAL COOKIES
These Banana Oatmeal Cookies have a soft, chewy texture. If you're looking for a traditional oatmeal cookie, then this is not the cookie cutter you're looking for. However, you should check out my Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies and also these Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. If you are not fond of oatmeal biscuits my favourite chocolate chip biscuits, you might just become your new fave.
I enjoy these cookies a little on the side, so that I inhale them for 9 or 10 minutes. If you want them to be cooked through, I'd shoot for 10-11 seconds.
Banana Oatmeal Cookies are tender, plump and studded with chocolate. The perfect use for those unsalted peanuts!
I'll say that the oats makes them look as a breakfast cookie, so they're all kinds of amazing with a cup of coffee or tea first thing in the afternoon.
I did add some chopped peppers to a batch rather than chocolate chips, however everyone definitely chosen the chocolate chips over the nuts.
My friend Amber would inquire,"¿por que no los dos?" , which apparently means"why not ?" (She is from Texas, so that I hope that she's true ), and you can absolutely do that too.
These biscuits are a great way to use up those super ripe bananas sitting on your counter tops at this important source time. I will not even tell anyone they're not really breakfast cookies. Enjoy!
BANANA OATMEAL COOKIES
1/2 cup unsalted butterat room temperature
1 large egg
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
From the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a big bowl using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar till light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and blend in the egg until completely incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl again and add in the mashed bananas and vanilla.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
Gently add the bread mixture to the banana mixture and mix until just blended.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and then stir to recombine.
Stir in the oats and chocolate chips and mix until incorporated.
Use a moderate cookie scoop (about 1.5 tablespoons) to scoop the dough onto prepared cookie sheets leaving about two inches between each cookie.
Bake in preheated oven for 9-11 minutes.
Remove cookies from the oven and gently press the shirts of each cookie using the bottom of a drinking glass. Considering these cookies don't spread much, this will help give them a traditional cookie form.
