Ingredients:

  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon of oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/4 cups of oats
  • 3-4 tablespoon of water (or milk)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips and/or walnuts (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, mix the brown sugar, sugar, oil, and water. Add flour mixture, banana and vanilla. Stir in the oats. (If it is too thin, let stand a bit so the oats can absorb the excess liquid; if it is too thick, add more water.) Drop by the tablespoon onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for 13 minutes, until golden brown.

Yield:

3 dozen cookies

    Oats contain a healthy dose of soluble and insoluble fiber. When eaten as part of a balanced diet, fiber-rich oats may help decrease cholesterol levels, decrease blood pressure and help control blood sugar levels.

    The fiber in oats is slow to be digested, making you fuller longer. The fiber in oats is also beneficial to the digestive tract in keeping the bowels functioning regularly.

    There have also been studies claiming that the phytonutrients found in oats may help decrease the risk of certain types of cancer. Oats can be a beneficial part of a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and exercise.
