Today I want to chat about Kombucha. Which is obviously utterly unrelated to those Banana Oatmeal Cookies, however I know you won't obey.
Allow me to start by saying that my husband drinks apple cider vinegar mixed with water daily to decrease inflammation or something like that.
He claims it is magical. I claim it's nasty.
While I know this will seem spectacular (cause it is), I literally dry heave at the sight and smell of the early ritual to a daily basis. He loves that about me personally.
Based on this reaction, one would think that I would stay far away from Kombucha, right? I mean, after all, it definitely has a vinegary tang.
However, for any reason, I keep trying it. I Would like to enjoy it SO DANG BAD.
These Banana Oatmeal Cookies are super easy to make and filled with banana flavor.
I'm really a marketer's fantasy cause each and every time I see someone I know liking a sip, or simply denying their favorite brand and flavor with a boomerang on Instagram, I'm all,"Perhaps you will taste acceptable!" .
Just imagine me with air quotes around the term enjoying because I believe it is difficult to believe this stuff is truly enjoyable in any sense of the word.
Along with spoiler alert. None of them taste good. None.
Even those that people claim are mild really are a huge no-go for me. They still taste like freaking bubbly vinegar.
I am basically convinced that anyone who drinks this fermented tea stuff gets zero taste buds, or seriously awesome ones.
I have literally tried every single brand that my local market carries and I HATED, maybe not overdone, HATED each one.
Banana Oatmeal Cookies are tender, chewy and studded with chocolate. Stir in walnuts or pecans for a little pinch!
Yes, I know hate is a really strong word, but there's actually no other way to describe my emotions towards kombucha. And I just had to tell y’all my true feelings about this one. Who is with me?
Believe me, I so want to enjoy the things cause it apparently has a ton of health advantages, but I will be the girl regretting a La Croix and booking vinegary flavors for salad dressing. Thank you very much!
Let us totally switch gears. One thing I adore? Cookies.
Out of no bake biscuits and effortless sugar cookies to these banana oatmeal biscuits, it has turned into a love affair that's gone on here in MBA for almost a decade now.
While I am not asserting these banana oatmeal cookies are the least wholesome (because hello butter and sugar ), I am claiming that they are delicious.
They have the ideal quantity of banana flavor and a beautiful chewy feel as a result of the oats. The chocolate chips are just an additional bonus.
Banana Oatmeal Cookies are soft, chewy and studded with chocolate. Sausage and dried cranberries Oh She Glows 15 Best Vegan Cookie Recipes! are also a perfect addition.
Everybody who attempted these banana oatmeal cookies thought they tasted a lot like banana bread, but obviously with an entirely different texture. We dug it about here.
And in my opinion, they're great a fantastic alternative to traditional banana bread.
These Banana Oatmeal Cookies have a soft, buttery feel. If you're looking for a traditional oatmeal cookie, then this is not the cookie you're searching for. But you should definitely check out my Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies and those Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. If you are not a fan of oatmeal cookies my favourite chocolate chip cookies, could just become your new fave.
I enjoy these biscuits somewhat about the left handed side, therefore I bake them for 9 or 10 minutes. If you want them to be cooked through, I would shoot for 10-11 seconds.
Banana Oatmeal Cookies are tender, chewy and studded with chocolate. The perfect use for all those browning bananas!
I'll mention that the oats almost makes them look as a breakfast cookie, so they're all sorts of amazing with a cup of tea or coffee first thing in the morning.
I did add some chopped peppers into a batch rather than chocolate chips, but everybody definitely chosen the chocolate chips over the nuts.
My friend Amber would inquire,"¿por que no los dos?" , that apparently means"why not both?" (She's from Texas, so I you could check here trust that she's accurate), and you can absolutely do that too.
These cookies are a great way to use up those super ripe bananas sitting on your counter tops right now. I won't 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
3 1/4 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and then mix in the egg until fully incorporated. Scrape the sides of the bowl and add the skillet and vanilla.
Gently add the the flour mixture to the banana mixture and mix until just combined.
Scrape the sides of the bowl and then stir to recombine.
Stir in the oats and chocolate chips and mix until incorporated.
Use a medium cookie scoop (approximately 1.5 tablespoons) to scoop the dough on prepared cookie sheets leaving about 2 inches between each cookie.
Bake in preheated oven for about 9-11 minutes.
Remove cookies from the oven and gently press the shirts of each cookie with the base of a drinking glass. Considering these cookies don't spread considerably, this will give them a traditional cookie shape.
Allow the banana oatmeal cookies to cool on the cookie sheets for 5 minutes before removing them to a wire rack to cool thoroughly.
