Failed Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I have to eat my words. Last week, I said I was a pretty good judge of tasty recipes, but this one was a dud. I must admit, it's probably not the recipe's fault.  I did use rolled oats instead of quick oats because that's what I had from my last batch.  I am also not a huge fan of low-fat recipes, so I don't know what made me think this was going to be different.

Verdict: Tasted like banana bread.  For whatever reason, the texture came out so bread-y that it was basically no longer a cookie.  And if you do make them, definitely flatten it out into a cookie shape because there is nothing in the batter to melt which turns normal cookies from balls into discs.

Here's the recipe I used, give it a try?



  1. I've seen a lot of "healthy" recipes use applesauce instead of oil or butter, so maybe try that instead of a banana next time.

    1. Haha, thanks. I actually don't object to the use of butter in my cookies, I just had a slightly riper banana and was kind of intrigued by the idea of using a banana to replace butter.
