1 stick butter, softened (1/2c)
1/2 c canola oil
1c brown sugar
1/2c white sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon (more or less)
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c AP flour
2c old fashioned oatmeal
1 c banana chips, broken into smaller pieces
1c cranberry raisins
1) Cookie Scoop = awesome. Mine makes small cookies, but it means I have more control over how much I eat.
2) Whole Wheat Flour creates a browner cookie. Do a few at first to test your baking time.
3) King Arthur Flour makes a soft whole wheat flour that can be subbed 1:1 for white flour in most recipes. Its widely available - I got mine at Target. If you are using traditional whole wheat, you may want to go 1c white flour & 1c ww flour in this recipe.
Preheat oven to 375. Scoop onto silpat or parchment. Squash gently with your hands for a crisper cookie. Bake 10 min (if using the small scoop mentioned above. Larger cookies will need more time). Cool on racks.
