Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies | Cookie Recipes

This is an entry from my oven after a long time. I hadn't been baking much lately due to pregnancy. Now that my LO is here I am planning to experiment more in baking (with his "schedule" permitting me of course). I made these little drop cookies to finish the leftover bananas on my fruits basket. With this scorching summer banana gets to over-ripe very fast, don't you agree? I followed this recipe from Namitha's space.
Ingredients:
Wheat flour - 1/2 cup
All purpose flour/Maida - 1/2 cup
Quick cooking oats/Rolled oats- 3/4 cup
Cinnamon powder - 1/2 tsp
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Salt - a pinch
Butter (room temperature) - 1 stick or 1/2 cup
Light Brown sugar / Granulated sugar - 1/2 cup
Mashed banana - 1/2 cup (1 big)
Egg - 1
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
Chocolate chips - 1/2 cup
Method:
Preheat the oven to 350 F/175 C. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Sieve/mix together the flours, oats, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Set aside. Whisk the butter and sugar until light and fluffy using a whisk or hand mixer. Add the egg, mashed banana and vanilla extract and mix well. Add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture and fold until mixed. Use a rounded 1 tbsp to measure the dough and drop into the cookie sheet. Place the dough two inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes are until light brown. Remove from the oven and let it cool in the cookie sheet for a few minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. These cookies also tastes good when warm.
