Justme: Oatmeal Banana Choco Chip Cookies

Seriously I have been dreaming of baking since I was a kid and this is just a dream come true for me. However there is no shortcuts in life and I am still struggling in the do's and don'ts of baking. There is so much to learn and I am happy because we should really not stop learning no matter what age we are in.

So I just wanna share my successful yummy baked treat, original recipe here: The Best Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. She has a bunch of oatmeal cookie recipes but this one is my favorite. Alas I made something good and edible, mom is asking for more. I baked them early morning and when I came home its all gone.

I am hands down in favor of the combination of bananas, chocolates and oatmeal. Its a match made in heaven. I really love how soft it is inside yet crunchy outside. Its a cookie and cake in one! Now lezz start!

STEP 1
It would be easier if you prepare and measure all of the ingredients beforehand.
First I started off with the bananas.


 For my version I mash them up before adding the other ingredients. Its okay to leave whole banana chunks, yes?



STEP 2
Add the egg, sugars, butter and vanilla. In that order. Mix until fluffy, take note that the mixture will be runny unlike the usual flour cookie dough.


STEP 3
In a separate bowl mix the oats, flour, baking soda and salt until combined.

STEP 4
Carefully mix the dry and wet ingredients together in two or three additions.


STEP 5
Add the chocolates. I use chopped baking chocolates as I find chips too conventional for home made cookies.


STEP 6
I played with the cookie dough and used different add-ins, not just chocolates. I chilled it overnight to lessen the stickiness of the dough. I preheated the oven at 176 C and used oil on my baking sheet (foil with the unshiny side on top). Rolled 1 tablespoon dough mounds. This cookies do not spread much and I bake them for 15 minutes well-done cookies. 


Cookies do firm up as they cool but I let it a bit longer than 15 minutes because mama wants crunchy cookies.. Baking times could vary but I always bake them until they are done. I let them cool on the baking sheet.

STEP 7
Tadaaa~

And here is my creation, say hello to my oatmeal banana cookies!
Clockwise: Peanut butter & white choco chips, truly chocolate, chunky bananas and choco chip

I'm using baking as my stress reliever and it's working!
Oatmeal Banana Cookies is said to last up to 7 days in an air tight jar or 6 months if frozen. However I never tried keeping them that long because its always gone shortly every after baking!

I brought them to work and even my office mates love it. Hopefully I can make it crunchier because it gets soft easily once out of the jar. 

LOVE LOVE LOVE: Baking is for me!~ <3
