Total Time42 mins
- 3/4 cup (170g) salted butter , softened
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup mashed bananas
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp cornstarch
- 3 cups old fashioned oats
Preheat your oven to 180C/170CFan/350F and line some baking trays with baking paper.
Mix the wet ingredients together
Measure the butter and chop it into small pieces (if it isn’t already soft, blast it in the microwave for a few seconds to make it easier to mix). Add it to a large mixing bowl.
Measure out the brown sugar and caster sugar and add to your mixing bowl.
Measure the vanilla extract into our bowl.
Crack the egg into a cup, and then add it to your mixing bowl.
Peel and then mash the bananas with a fork/masher. When they are well mashed add them to your mixing bowl.
Give everything a good mix.
Bake the banana and oat cookies
Spoon tablespoons of cookie dough onto your baking sheet. You want to flatten them down a little bit into thick disks. Make sure they are spread out nicely as they’ll spread a bit when they bake.
Bake them for 10-12 minutes. They’re ready when the edges start to go golden.
Remove the cookies from the oven and leave them to cool for a few minutes. Move them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
