Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are one of my faves, and one of Susan Saradon’s too. They combine heart-healthy rolled oats and walnuts with potassium-packed bananas, to make a delectable, yet healthy dessert. You can even make this recipe vegan-friendly by using soy milk and vegan chocolate chips. Enjoy these cookies with a tall glass of milk (or soy milk) for less than 200 calories.

– 1 1/2 cups oat flour
– 3/4 cup rolled oats

– 1 teaspoon canola oil
– 1/3 cup soy milk
– 1/2 cup banana puree (1 medium-size banana)
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
