Banana, Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip, Ginger Cookies

I had a LOT of overly ripe bananas! So with more of the bananas I made cookies. The recipe was actually very useful as it used up lots of other little bits of ingredients. They were more cake like than cookie really but I did make them rather large! I still have more bananas so expect more banana related recipes! 

Banana, Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip and Ginger Cookies (from The Sweets Life)

113g unsalted butter
160g sugar
1 egg
2 ripe bananas, mashed
190g flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
180g rolled oats
90g chocolate chips
60g crystallised ginger, finely chopped

Line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper and set aside.

Cream the butter with the sugar and the egg, beating until smooth. Mix in the bananas.

Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt, add the  cinnamon and oats, mixing with a metal spoon until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and crystallised ginger.
Chill the dough for 30 mins to 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 180C.

Place tablespoon-sized balls of dough onto the baking sheets. Bake for 8-10 mins until lightly browned and cooked through. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.
