Chocolate Banana Cookies

When Banana meets Chocolate!

After my first series of oatmeal cookies I was looking for a new recipe and found one including my favorite combination : Banana & Chocolate. 

Since I am baking more regularly, my love for cookies has tripled. I have to admit that I've become a huge fan of oatmeal too, the reason why I am always happy to find new cookie recipes including those lovely oats. Those who know me a little better are not surprised to see that I was finally baking something including these two ingredients. From chocolate fondue to fruit snacks on the annual fairy in Luxembourg, I have always chosen the above mentioned combination.

From my local friends here in Serbia to my friends in Lebanon, all agreed that the soft but crunchy cookie is absolutely not to miss. Some were even ready to buy me an additional baking bowl to make some more for them. 

For 25-30 cookies:

210g flour
100g rolled oat
100g brown sugar
170g butter
1 big egg
1/2 ts Baking Powder
1/2 ts vanilla extract
1 banana
220g chocolate chips
60g crushed roasted almonds
1/4 ts salt

Preheat the oven to 180°

In a middle-sized bowl whisk the flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate large bowl put together the butter and the sugar and mix until you get a bright mixture. Then add the egg and the vanilla extract and mix again until you get a smooth mixture. Now add the banana which you cut into thin slices before. Then stir in the flour mix and the oats. Finally add the chocolate chips and the almonds.

Place the cookies onto your baking sheet and bake them for 12 minutes.
