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!

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?

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.

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

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

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

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.


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
