Banana, Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip, Pecan Cookies

Banana, Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip, Pecan CookiesThe title of these cookies may be a mouthful but they are my new favorite cookie! I had a VERY ripe banana to use up so I decided to make cookies with it. I thought oatmeal, milk chocolate chips, and pecans would go well with the banana-flavored cookie. I would normally use brown sugar but I was out, so I just used white sugar and I used whole wheat flour to make them a bit healthier. These cookies were a fun after-school project with the kids and they tasted amazing. I loved the crunchy texture on the outside and the soft and moist texture inside. These cookies were a big hit with my entire family.

  1. I always end up with a few spare ripe bananas at the end of a case of them. Keeping them peeled in freezer bags means I always have them available for wonderful recipes like this one! Beautiful cookies!

  2. these most definitely fit my qualifications for an appropriate breakfast food, but they'd be mighty fine for dessert too. i love the appearance, pam–lovely recipe!

  15. I made almost the exact cookies the other night pecans and all!!! (I ground up some some oatmeal for flour and added it to the other flour) They reminded me of muffin tops they were oh so good. Now you've gone and made me want them again. Yours look so much more "professional" than mine did. Thanks for sharing, Pam.

  16. What a delicious combo for a cookie. They all sound like they blend perfectly together, like a banana bread cookie, almost.

  17. Banana in cookies always kind of surprises me. But then once i taste it I remember why it is such a good idea. I love the combination in these! Perfect use for an overripe banana.

  18. Que Magnifigue este…bravo!!!!

    Oh yeah…LOVE IS IN THE AIR,SO IS ROMANCE…WISH YA LOADS OF IT @ 365….

  19. Pam you knocked this baby out of the park! This is the perfect combination! Cannot wait to try these cookies..

  20. Comp'liments the mix that you've used is fantastic…they are very greedy…and your site is very interesting…a kiss by Luciana

  21. These are excellent. I didn't have some items so had to make some substitutions. I used 50/50 brown to granulated sugar, old fashioned oats, and a mixture of semisweet to bittersweet chips. This is the first recipe I have tried from your site– I am so going to try some others now. I think I'll start with some more cookies! Thanks so much!

  22. These cookies are very good, but I wondered what I did wrong. They stayed in a little ball just about like I put them on the cookie sheet (with parchment). Would that happen if I used only 1/2 tsp baking soda, because I just remembered putting in the 1/2 tsp salt first, then I used the same 1/2 tsp to put in the baking soda, but maybe forgot to put in 2. At least, it didn’t affect the great flavor!
