tasty tuesday's

time for some tasty tuesday fun! 

it saddens  me that i no longer have a lot of time for baking. i used to bake almost weekly but with life being so busy i'm lucky to bake unless it's for a dinner party. but last week i had the urge to bake and wanted to find something not to horribly fattening but still delicious. so i grabbed my Pretty Delicious cookbook by Candice Kumai and found this amazing recipe for Banana Chocolate Chip-Oat Cookies. and let me tell you these are some amazing cookies! i already have plans to make them again in the very near future. They were so nice and moist and super easy to make. and the best part, they aren't totally to horrible for you. makes having the cookie a little less guilty. except be carful they are a little addicting. here is the recipe for you!

Gone Banans Chocolate Chip- Oat Cookies: 
preheat the oven to 350
3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup mashed banana
2 cups quick oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips 

cream butter and brown sugar on medium until creamy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat to combine. Mix in ashed banana and 1/4 cup of water. Add flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Add the oats and chocolate chips and mix briefly. chill the cookie dough for 15 min. (this is a step you don't want to skip)

line baking sheet with foil and coat lightly with cooking spray. Use a tablespoon to scoop out balls and bake for 10 minutes.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I did! 

Have a simply tasty tuesday!
