Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the sugar and shortening until light and fluffy. Mix in the bananas and egg and mix well, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Mix in the vanilla.

In a separate large mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Mix until thoroughly combined.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix just until combined. It will be a wet cookie dough. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Using a 2 spoons or an ice cream scoop is a great way to portion cookies with wetter doughs like this one. Portion cookies out using overflowing tablespoonfuls on 2 ungreased cookie sheets, 12 cookies per sheet. Bake just until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn and swap the cookie sheets on each rack for even cooking. Cool on a wire rack.

    Very Good except I think next time I would use only 1 banana. They came out too soft.

    YUMMALICIOUS!!! As I started making the recipe, I went to get the oatmeal and didn't see it in the glass canister. So I mixed with 3C of all purpose flour and folded it into the dough in thirds. The dough started out dry and thick but as I gently folded with my large wire whisk the dough came together. I used a small cooky dough scoop to drop onto the pan. I baked on parchment for up to 13min for dark, and up to 8min for very light. I am going to add more nutmeg, cinnamon, and maybe a little clove next time. PLUS the oatmeal. Thanks for the recipe!!

    I saw Kelsey make these on tv the other day and I knew they would be the perfect treat to have ready when my mother in law comes to town tomorrow! I didn't have shortening on hand so I used butter instead, they still came out amazing. I used an ice cream scoop like she suggests and i got 27 cookies. Keep an eye on them though, mine only took 17 minutes to bake. They are delicious and I will definitely make them again!
