Chewy Banana Oatmeal Cookies


Ingredients

Wet ingredients
1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks) softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup bananas (about 2 bananas)
2 eggs
Dry ingredients
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 cups old fashioned oatmeal

Instructions

Combine dry ingredients
Combine the cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, salt, and flour in a large bowl. And set it aside.
Combine all the wet ingredients
In a separate bowl, mix the softened butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract using an electric hand mixer.
Now mash up the bananas using a potato masher or a fork and add it to the butter mixture along with 2 eggs. Beat that on medium speed until well combined.
Add flour mixture to the cookie dough
Add in the flour mixture and oatmeal to the butter and mix until all the ingredients are well incorporated.
Scoop onto a baking sheet and bake in the oven
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and scoop out mounds of the banana oatmeal cookie dough using a medium cookie scoop.
At this point, you can round them balls in your hands or top with chocolate chips (optional). Now bake at 370 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes.
