Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

adapted from Kelsey's Essentials

 Yield: 2 dozen cookies




Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, 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 dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix just until combined. It will be a wet cookie dough. Stir in the chocolate chips.

 Portion cookies out using overflowing tablespoonfuls on 2 greased cookie sheets, 12 cookies per sheet. Bake just until golden brown, 20 minutes. I recommend baking these one sheet at a time. Cool on a wire rack.
